Daniel is only 15 years old. Advanced keratoconus caused his left cornea to bulge and thin. HIs vision could not be corrected with ordinary glasses or standard scleral lenses in this left eye.
Keratoconus, is a corneal disease, which causes the cornea to bulge and thin. The cornea is responsible for up to 70% of your eyes’ focussing power. It usually starts in the early teenage years – so you can imagine the impact this has on a child’s education and personal development.
Daniel’s mom says his school work has improved incredibly as his sight is restored. He has also become far more active. We are so grateful to everyone who donated towards Daniel’s life changing sight restoration!
