Examples of Keratoconic Vision Simulations

I did a bit of searching for good examples of how life looks when you have Keratoconus… Here are the images I found.   Some images weren’t credited… so if you are the creator/artist/photographer and I have used an image you would like removed, please make contact with me.

    Nice blog! Thanks for posting these images. I have seen these floating around Google, but how else are we to explain how we see to the masses? No one gets it! Sorry you had to get a transplant. I was spared due to bilateral cross-linking last summer and got a huge vision improvement in my “bad” eye, which was wonderful. Goodbye “multiple images” of everything; I won’t miss you. Good luck on your KC journey…

      Glad to hear crosslinking helped you. It was not an option for me as my KC was too advanced.

    Thanks for sharing these images. I’ve been struggling with this for 17 years and still fail miserably when trying to explain to people what and how I actually see. I’m at the advance stage now and legally blind in one eye with the other closly copying! It’s a truly awful frustrating condition but I’m still here and able to moan about it so that’s a positive…lol. Thanks again x

    Good work now I can show folks and family the above so they can begin to comprehend although with a 4th (and last attempt on my right eye) transplant pending and a period of legal blindness in the past I wish the current surgery had been available in 1982, 2000, 2005 and now in 2013 ! Still as Emma says we are lucky we can moan about it and there remains a chance of eyesight being restored again to differing degrees. In Australia when applying for jobs we have to undergo medicals (which I have failed in the past for obvious reasons) and declare previous medical op’s. Of course no employer (and fair enough) wants to know and I find this discrimination wears me down more than the actual initial keratoconus ad subsequent transplants ! I also get “floaties” in front of my eyes that interfere with my sight but roll on the next transplant and many thanks to all those donors and their families not to mention the surgeons. Many thanks again for the pictures

    I have had three transplants left 1986, right 1991 and right again in 2013. I have had incredible success with living and working with pretty great vision considering my keratoconus. I am so grateful for the doctors skill and the generosity of my donors. Miraculous.
