Keratoconus Contact Lenses

Keratoconus is a complex eye disease, which will often require a specialist, for a complex process to treat the condition and provide patients with great vision. While surgical procedures like Corneal Crosslinking (CXL)Intactscorneal transplantation, are sometimes needed, often keratoconus contact lenses are required to correct and provide great vision. Our philosophy is to provide the highest level of patient care with all the keratoconus treatment options.

Types of Keratoconus Contact Lenses:

  • Custom Soft Contact Lenses are designed to correct mild-to-moderate keratoconus.scleral-keratoconus-contact-lenses-
  • Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP), also known as a hard lens, was originally the go-to keratoconus contact lenses. The rigid lens masks the underlying cornea and functions as a refractive surface.
  • Piggyback Contact Lenses involves a soft contact lens together with RGP gas permeable lens which increases comfort of the hard contact lens.
  • Hybrid Contact Lenses were designed specifically for keratoconus. They are a combination of a soft lens with the center of and RGP keratoconus lens –giving the comfort of a soft lens, with the optics\vision of the RGP design.
  • Scleral Lenses are a large diameter lens that vaults the cornea and rests on the sclera. With new keratoconus contact lens materials these lenses are very comfortable and can provide superior optics to both RGP and hybrid keratoconus lenses.
  • PVR PROSE, commonly referred to as a PROSE lens, is a prosthetic device similar to scleral lenses, which uses fluid to replace and smooth-out the ocular surface. These keratoconus contact lenses are designed and customized utilizing Optical Coherence Tomography OCT and Wavefront Higher Order Aberrations (HOA) technology to correct glare, halos, starburst, ghosting, and other vision distortions.
  • EyePrintPro, is also a prosthetic scleral device, which designed to match the exact shape of the cornea using a molding process.
