Brief Answer:
Floaters and dark spots not associated with Keratoconus

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.

Dark spots and floaters are not related to keratoconus. Dizziness and heavy headedness may always be due to cervical spondylitis. So it is the neck muscles which are to be taken care of and its good that you already are undergoing treatment by physiotherapist.

Concentrate on your neck exercises and you will be fine.

Let me know if there's any further queries that I can help you with..

Regards
