Keratoconus means her cornea is very thin and shaped like a cone which causes sensitivity to light and distorted vision. Astigmatism means she is both short sighted and far sighted. The vision is blurry, and she cannot see both objects that are far and near. Amblyopia is a condition where her eyes are now lazy because they have become so dependent on glasses that they no longer perform their functions
