Phenotypic and Genotypic Analysis of Keratoconus

Brief description of study

This research study is being conducted to learn more about keratoconus, an eye disease, and to find possible genetic and biochemical changes that contribute to this disease. We hope to use this data to find changes that are involved in the development of, or risk for, keratoconus. The study will analyze DNA sequences of those affected with keratoconus and unaffected relatives of those who have a positive family history of keratoconus to study the causes of this condition so that better diagnosis and treatments may become available in the future.
