Specialty soft lenses for keratoconus

Posted on: March 16th, 2012 by G. D.

Improvements in specialty lens designs have made this contact lens modality a viable option for patients who have mild to moderate keratoconus. Generally, these soft lenses have center thickness 4X  greater than standard soft lenses, which allows them to mask surface irregularity caused by keratoconus. When necessary, they can be manufactured using silicone hydrogel material that increase oxygen to the corneal surface. Specialty soft lenses for keratoconus can be a successful alternative when standard GP designs fail secondary to comfort issues.

For mor information, read my article on this subject that I co-authored with Dr. Eiden in Contact Lens Spectrum.

The 2012 Global Specialty Lens Symposium was held in Las Vegas from January 26-29th. Over 450 contact lens practitioners from all over the world participated in this year’s meeting, and scleral lenses were a popular topic.  I was honored to have been selected to present two lectures, one of which included information about managing post-operative corneal irregularity with scleral lenses.

Scleral Lens Size

Posted on: November 23rd, 2011 by G. D.

 

Scleral Lenses can range in diameter from 12.5mm to 25mm.  I generally use scleral lenses that are 18mm for most cases of corneal irregularity or ocular surface disease.
