Myopia

An abnormality of refraction characterized by the ability to see objects nearby clearly, while objects in the distance appear blurry. [from HPO]

MedGen UID:
44558
Concept ID:
C0027092
Disease or Syndrome
2.

Keratoconus

A noninflammatory, usually bilateral protrusion of the cornea, the apex being displaced downward and nasally. It occurs most commonly in females at about puberty. The cause is unknown but hereditary factors may play a role. The -conus refers to the cone shape of the corneal protrusion. (From Dorland, 27th ed) [from MeSH]

Pregnancy

So you're going to have a baby! Whether you are pregnant or are planning to get pregnant, you will want to give your baby a healthy start. You need to have regular visits with your healthcare provider. These prenatal care visits are very important for your baby and yourself. Some things you might do when you are pregnant could hurt your baby, such as smoking or drinking. Some medicines can also be a problem, even ones that a doctor prescribed. You will need to drink plenty of fluids and eat a healthy diet. You may also be tired and need more rest. Your body will change as your baby grows during the nine months of your pregnancy. Don't hesitate to call your health care provider if you think you have a problem or something is bothering or worrying you. .  [from MedlinePlus]

Myopia 11, autosomal dominant

Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a refractive error of the eye. Light rays from a distant object are focused in front of the retina and those from a near object are focused in the retina; therefore distant objects are blurry and near objects are clear (summary by Kaiser et al., 2004). For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of susceptibility to myopia, see 160700. [from OMIM]

Keratoconus 7

Keratoconus (KTCN) is a noninflammatory thinning and consequent bulging of the cornea that results in distortion of the corneal surface, altered refractive powers of the eye (both axial and refractive), and reduced visual acuity. In more advanced cases, corneal scarring further reduces visual acuity. Symptoms are highly variable and depend on the stage of the progression of the disorder. The trait has an incidence of approximately 1 in 2,000 individuals and is the most common indication for corneal transplantation in the United States (summary by Gajecka et al., 2009). For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of keratoconus, see KTCN1 (148300). [from OMIM]

Keratoconus 5

Keratoconus is a noninflammatory progressive corneal thinning disorder resulting in mixed myopia and irregular astigmatism. Characteristic features include stromal thinning, Vogt striae, Fleisher ring, and scissoring of the retinoscopic reflex with a fully dilated pupil. Symptoms usually develop in the second decade and are likely to progress in the third decade, whereas progression slows after age 30 years. The progression of keratoconus may result in severe visual impairment and some affected individuals require cornea transplantation. The prevalence of keratoconus is about 1 in 2,000 in Caucasian populations, and is a leading cause for cornea transplantation in developed countries (summary by Tang et al., 2005). For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of keratoconus, see KTCN1 (148300). [from OMIM]
