Contact Lens Therapy
Contact lenses are often the only option for people who suffer with Keratoconus. Due to the complex shape of the cornea, glasses just don't cut it.
Contact lenses DO NOT halt or slow the progression of the condition, they simply correct the refractive error and allow the patient to see clearer.
Soft lenses can be of use although they can be limited often trading comfort and ease of use for slightly inferior vision. The vast majority of cases require some form of RGP (hard lens) correction. In recent years there has been great advancements in the design of contact lenses for the irregular cornea and in particular the mini-scleral lens designs have been a great leap forward.
Newer designs are regularly updated, I will attempt to keep the following ages as up to date as possible. Click below to see more information regarding the latest lenses in the keratocnic and irregular cornea armoury.
