I hope he forgets about keratoconus

From the article :†https://www.healio.com/news/ophthalmology/20210329/blog-i-hope-he-forgets-about-keratoconus

'We need to work on making keratoconus more than an afterthought when examining young people whose prescriptions are changing rapidly or do not reach 20/20. When a child can only be corrected to 20/30, itís easy to chalk it up to a lack of effort on the childís part, but sometimes itís more than that. When in doubt, I recommend a quick pinhole near vision test to evaluate visual potential. If the vision improves with a pinhole, it is likely due to an uncorrected refractive error. We should suspect keratoconus and investigate further with topography and tomography.'
