PREGNANCY MAY EFFECT CORNEAL CURVATURE IN KERATOCONUS

This report in The Journal of Refractive Surgery concludes:

CONCLUSIONS:
These clinical cases indicate that hormonal changes occurring regularly during gestation may have a severe impact on the progression of keratoconus. However, these changes are transient and fully reversible. Therefore, physicians should be reluctant to perform cross-linking during or directly after pregnancy and should wait until the corneal curvature has been stabilized.
