Keratoconus is a condition in which thinning occurs in a portion of the cornea. This thinned area tends to bulge outward into a cone shape. Keratoconus usually occurs in both eyes, but more in one than the other. Symptoms include an increase in nearsightedness (myopia) and an increase in astigmatism. Because the astigmatism is of an unusual form, eyeglasses usually cannot provide satisfactory clarity. Rigid contact lenses are used to create a more uniform curvature over the front of the misshapen cornea. In this way, rigid lenses provide the best vision for keratoconus patients and are the treatment of choice for moderately affected patients. Given the unique needs of a keratoconus patient, it is important to seek out a qualified doctor who has experience in successfully fitting contact lenses for this condition.Our doctors have that experience.
