Blog Mission Statement:
Keratoconus Information on the Web: A mixed bag
On the Internet, there is a huge mix of content, and not all of it is worth reading. Each website owner has their own particular motivation, and you’ll get every extreme described. I have no motivation other than to share what I’ve learned over the years, and ease the burden of others who are looking for answers.
Here are some points about how I put this together:
- The blog should save time and distress – only “real” Kerataconus information will be here – no “revolutionary” treatments designed for the profit of the eye center.
- The blog should be skimmable. You should get 80% of what you need to know in 20% of the time. If you want to dig deeper, I’ll provide links, etc.
- The blog should be easy to read with low vision. I’ll use largish, simple layouts compatible with reduced vision.
- It should work on mobile phones. Many will be looking at this site on the go, and that experience should be satisfying.
Comments and Contributions
I will link to good information, but not to sites created strictly for marketing. I will not post psuedoscientific, alternative and unproven treatments on this site. These are almost always motivated by profit, ignorance or both. If I cannot find reason to believe the information I’m posting has been somewhat vetted, it won’t go online.
I am not a physician and cannot advise you in any way towards the individualized, professional care of a medical doctor. Everything you read on this site is provided as-is, with the stipulation that it might be wrong for you, or just plain wrong. I’ll correct what I know to be wrong.
