This leading paper by Dr Laura Downie and Richard Lindsay provides a comprehensive review of contact lens fitting for keratoconus.
The review covers soft lenses, hybrid designs, rigid lenses, piggyback configurations, and corneo-scleral, mini-scleral and scleral lenses.
Contact lenses are the first line of treatment for keratoconus. Contact lens designs and materials offer more options than ever before, and modern imaging technology can be exploited to guide contact lens fitting.
In the July 2015 issue of Clinical and Experimental Optometry 98.4, there are three other papers on contact lenses, two of them relating to keratoconus.
