Keratoconus (KC) affects between 5-30% of individuals with Down syndrome and can impact their ability to function at their highest level. It is important for family members and caregivers to schedule regular eye exams beginning in infancy, to screen for KC during the teen and early adult years, and to consistently monitor for changes in vision. A missed or delayed diagnosis can be debilitating.
