What type of contact lenses are used to treat keratoconus?
Our keratoconus treatment protocol focuses primarily on designing and prescribing highly customized contact lenses made specifically for treating keratoconus. Using this treatment, the majority of our keratoconus patients have experienced restored vision without the need for surgical procedures, such as corneal transplants, corneal implants (Intacs), or corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL). We have also helped many patients who still have vision problems after undergoing these surgeries (at the recommendation of other doctors).
We prescribe primarily five categories of contact lenses for our keratoconus patients:
