Keratoconus linked to sleep aponea

Posted on 28th May 2012

A rather odd link has been found between Keratoconus and sleep aponea.

Researchers in Chicago did some clever statistics on a group of 184 people (half of whom had keratoconus) and found 18 had a known sleep apnoea history and 49 were identified as high risk of the condition.

No one is really sure what to do with the finding but if you’re tired all the time and your vision is blurry then come and see us just in case.
