In Keratoconus the corneal tissue is weakened and progressively thins and steepens which can distort vision even with glasses.  Often specialty contact lenses are needed to see clearly and in severe cases corneal transplantation is required to obtain better vision.  There are new treatments which show promise in stabilizing this progression without the need for corneal transplantation surgery in the less severe presentations of this disorder.
