Keratoconus

Our Eye Care Practice is specially equipped to provide keratoconus services with state-of-the-art technology including corneal topography and external digital ocular photography. Because specialty contact lenses are often deemed medically necessary for restoring functional vision in keratoconus, we have an extensive inventory of diagnostic contacts lenses allowing our doctors to prescribe solutions matching your individual needs. Our clinic can successfully manage keratoconus without surgery in most cases.

In most cases of keratoconus, a contact lens with rigid optics is required for restoring the best vision. The rigid lens surface provides a smooth, artificial surface to clearly bend light into the eye while masking the "peaks and valleys" of the distorted cornea underneath.

The most appropriate contact lens type for you is determined by our doctors following a comprehensive examination and contact lens prescribing. Our doctors prescribe a variety lens designs.
