The Continuum of Care for Keratoconus

By Edward S. Bennett, OD, M.S.Ed;
Jeffrey Sonsino, OD; and S. Barry Eiden, OD
Published for Contact Lens Spectrum: February 2018

Today, we have a broad and ever-increasing number of viable options for keratoconus management including larger-diameter intralimbal corneal GPs, scleral lenses, hybrid lenses, and custom soft lenses. The benefits and increasing popularity of new and more comfortable contact lens designs, combined with CXL’s effect on progression, should continue to reduce the number of individuals needing some form of keratoplasty procedure.

The following article discusses the current management options for keratoconus and presents a continuum of care with recommended options for the many different types of patients who exhibit this corneal disease.

Can Help Nail Distance

Fitting presbyopes has never been easy, especially when these patients are young, emerging presbyopes who aren’t used to visual struggle and have never been faced with the need to neuroadapt. The challenge for practitioners is further multiplied when these same patients have astigmatism, since this usually greatly reduces the options at our disposal. Fortunately, we now have another lens for our toolkit.

No need to return scleral lenses for credit!

SynergEyes has updated its return policy for corneal GP and scleral lenses. Effective immediately, these lenses no longer need to be returned to SynergEyes to receive credit. Simply call Customer Care within 90 days of the first order date to initiate the credit. Similar to our hybrid lens return policy, there is now no need to return corneal GP and scleral lenses for credit.
