A question which has been posed to us by one forum member is related to the use of cell phones. Smart phones have proliferated and we have i phone, android phones and the like. These phones may emit radiation. So logical question is can they move the newer intacs or worsen the keratoconus disease. We do not know of any study which point to this. If you analyze the pathophysiology of the disease,you will realize it is due to lack of bonding between the collagen fibrils of the cornea.Radiation has not been shown as a causative factor. Cell phones wilL therefore not have any effect. Still, lets use caution, for who knows what studies 30 years from now will show.
