Psychological testing of 63 normal subjects and 84 patients with keratocone was carried out separately for men and women aged 18-64 years using 11 scores of a brief multifactorial questionnaire for personality examination (BMQP). Comparison of averaged profiles of examined men and women with keratocone showed features of sensitive and psychasthenic personalities. According to BMQP scores, the population of men with keratocone is characterized by increased levels of psychasthenia and schizophrenia, whereas women develop depression, psychasthenia, and schizophrenia.
