Specialty Contact Lenses
Specialty Contact Lenses are a great option for patients who have conditions that don’t allow the use of regular contact lenses and can provide better vision than glasses for patients with Keratoconus.
A scleral contact lens sits above the cornea creating a tear-filled vault which keeps the lens from touching the cornea. These lenses can be used for a number of conditions and patients often find them more comfortable than traditional contact lenses.
Some benefits of Specialty Contact Lenses are:
- They reduce the rate of change of the keratoconic cornea.
- They are the best choice for improved vision vs. glasses for keratoconus.
- They are comfortable because they do not touch the cornea at all.
