    Depends of the country you are, I am in Venezuela and I have had Keraconus since I was 16 years old. I am 22 at the moment and already lost complete vision on left eye and more than 50% in the right one. My mother took me to several doctors and she is fighting for me to have cornea transplant, doctors say I should wait until I am 25. What is the use of that if I can´t see?

    There are several pages about keratoconus in the net, you should search and find more information.
