Keratoconus is a condition which has to be reviewed for progression. There are few reports mentioning eye rubbing associated with Keratoconus. But working on computer has no Association, only that blinking is infrequent so it can be relieved with the frequent use of lubricating eyedrops.

Working on computer doesn't affect eyes except it can cause dry eye problem. But related to your problem computer will not worsen it. So no need to change work pattern. Keratoconus is a genetic problem if you are chosen to have it, you will have it. No external factor will change things. So best precaution you can take is a very regular ophthalmologist examination. This will help to detect any progression of the condition and accordingly any further treatment required.
