Keratoconus is a hereditary condition where the patient’s cornea is steeper and thinner than normal. This chronic condition can worsen with age and usually results in poor visual acuity.
Sometimes, glasses or traditional contact lenses, cannot give patients
with keratoconus acceptable vision.
Although there is no cure for keratoconus, our doctors can properly diagnose keratoconus with a corneal mapping instrument called a “corneal topographer.” Then, we can use “Synergeyes” hybrid contact lenses or Rigid Gas Permeable contact lenses to give these patients the best possible vision and comfort they deserve.
