Keratoconus Continuum Of Care: Sclerals, Hybrids and GP Lenses (VIDEO)

By Jeffrey Sonsino, OD, FAAO

In this video, Jeffrey Sonsino, OD, FAAO, discusses a philosophy for managing keratoconus patients at different disease stages, and contact lenses to use at each stage.

"Currently, the manufacturers provide many contact lens options when treating keratoconic patients. We are now paying more attention to the continuum of care of keratoconus. These contact lens options (e.g. sclerals, hybrids and gas permeables) open up many solutions for different symptoms of keratoconus."

Dr. Sonsino's lecture is broken down into 3 main topics:

  1. How to manage keratoconus patients
  2. Criteria for stage determination
  3. Contact lenses for each stage
