Obesity and Keratoconus

This was our lovely patient who we recommended in Oct 2021 having weight loss surgery before transplantation for keratoconus. He died of obesity related complications in February 2022.
This is his cousin demonstrating eye rubbing with his knuckles. He lost over 30kg after his cousins passing. He developed a hydrops in this eye. I will perform a stromal transplant in his other eye.
This is the corneal hydrops…
