Number of serving personnel with the eye condition Keratoconus.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Ministry of Defence, I am writing to request data on firstly, the number of serving personnel, across all branches of the UK armed forces, who currently have or have had the eye condition known as Keratoconus.

Secondly, I am requesting data on the number of personnel who have been accepted into employment with the armed who had a diagnosis of Keratoconus on their record prior to employment. Essentially how many people who knowingly had Keratoconus have been allowed to join.

Yours faithfully,

Louis Romero.
