Keratoconus is such a frustrating disability for patients. Glasses are useless and contacts are an ordeal. Please call us about having a custom set of semiscleral lenses made for you! Guaranteed to be the most comfortable lenses you can wear for this unfortunate condition.
For those with Keratoconus, we are generally unable to utilize Ortho-K techniques.
However, the technology can be applied with fantastic results. I start with a digital topography of your individual corneas. After designing the back side of the lens on my CAD/CAM system, the lenses are manufactured and placed on the eyes. After assuring the fit with the cornea is good with no pressure on the cone (which results in scarring), I then determine the final prescription of the lenses. The design is updated with the proper powers and a second set of lenses are made which are often the final set of the fitting. The new lenses today are as large and as comfortable as soft contact lenses and in fact, are often used when the patient desires to continue daytime lens wear but their eyes are too dry to wear soft contact lenses comfortably. Let me put my expertise to work for you. People with severe corneal scarring, keratoconus, and other corneal issues can be dramatically helped using the latest in corneal lense technology. Call us. You will be glad you did!
