Keratoconus is a condition in which the cornea is distorted in shape, resulting in poor vision. This condition can be helped with a highly customized gas permeable contact lens.
In advanced stages, keratoconus can result in thinning and scarring of the cornea. Corneal topography (a map of the cornea surface) can be used to monitor keratoconus and watch for progression. In some cases, a cornea transplant and scleral contact lens is necessary to improve vision.
Scleral lenses can provide clear, comfortable vision after all types of corneal transplants.
Neurotrophic keratopathy is a degenerative condition of the cornea involving reduction or loss of corneal sensitivity when the trigeminal nerve is impaired. Scleral lenses can be used to protect the front surface of the eye and promote healing.
Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease in which glasses often do not improve vision. Scleral gas permeable lenses can drastically enhance vision in patients with keratoconus.
