Variety of soft, Semi-soft (Rigid Gas Permeable) and combination lenses are now available to improve the vision in patients with Keratoconus.
Soft Contact lenses
Routine Soft Toric lenses help in improving vision in patients with low cylinders or astigmatism. They do not work in more advanced cases with higher astigmatism. Special Soft lenses, however can work with early to moderate cases.
These could be small (intracorneal), miniscleral or semiscleral lenses depending upon the size of the lenses.
Small or Intracorneal RGP lenses
The most popular, RoseK2 lenses, are invented to give a good vision and comfortable fit in cases of irregular cornea like Keratoconus, Pellucid marginal degeneration etc. They could be used alone or over a soft contact lens in Piggy Back system of lenses.
Miniscleral or semiscleral lenses
These are large lenses above 12mm and tend to cover entire cornea and part of sclera. Theses work very well in all cases esp. The advanced cases of keratoconus, where, smaller RoseK2 lenses do not fit well or fall off frequently. They could work so well that a surgery like corneal transplant can be avoided in some patients.
