Which contact lens for keratoconus?
Keratoconus is caused by a local thinning in the cornea. At this thinning, the cornea bulges locally and forms a cone. A contact lens is the most suitable optical aid, because a contact lens tackles the problem at the source.
Due to the higher oxygen permeability of the new lens materials and the better fits, scleral lenses are very suitable for the correction of keratoconus. As a result, this lens type has become increasingly popular in recent years. Lathes and the controlling software can run increasingly complex patterns. Scleral lenses with Conepower technology are one of a kind. This type of scleral lens not only improves vision, but also contrast sensitivity. Scleral lenses with Conepower technology are unique in their kind and only available at the Keratoconus Center in the Netherlands.
Do you want to know what Conepower technology does for your vision and contrast sensitivity? Then make an appointment for a test fit.
Hard contact lenses restore visual performance best in keratoconus. A hard contact lens creates an optically new front for the eye, correcting the irregular deformation of the own cornea. Please note: a contact lens is not intended to block or push back the cone. Hard contact lenses include small hard contact lenses, hybrid contact lenses, and scleral lenses. These different types of contact lenses give a fairly similar effect optically.
Sometimes it is not possible to tolerate hard contact lenses, or you would rather not. Then it is good to know that there are also special soft contact lenses for the correction of keratoconus. These soft contact lenses have a special fit. An adjusted thickness ensures that you see sharper than with regular soft contact lenses. If you still cannot see sharp enough with these soft contact lenses, then hybrid contact lenses should be considered.
