Keratoconus

Does anyone have Keratoconus?  I've had it since 2000... It has not progressed much since then because I have a fantastic Doctor who has prescribed the proper gas permable lenses.  He says I am the poster person from KT and to keep doing what I am doing... When I discovered I had this eye problem they said that I would need a corneal transplant in my early 50s I am now in my 50s and all is well...

Just wondering if anyone else had it...

Thanks!

Keratoconus is a variable disease.  Many do not progress.
