No one else in my family has keratoconus that we know of.

My brother does suffer from Stargardt's disease though.

My 14 year old son has it and so does his Aunt. They got it at around the same age and both had more progression in the left eye than the right. Our great uncle also has it. Definitely genetic for us.

Not that I know of. But then again, I'd never heard of it until I was sent to a corneal specialist after so many bouts of optic neuritis (from MS) and the everchanging eyeglass RX.

KC is a strange thing .... do not know of any genetic link at this point.
