We recommend all of our patients to use Unique PH because of ease of rubbing and rinsing. Unique PH is much less viscus before it goes into eyes. Reduced viscosity helps to clean lenses and rinse with ease. We also recommend most of our patient to use Progent RGP cleaners to give a lenses turbo clean to dissolve all nonsenses on them. Lacripure is recommend to rinse and fill up the large diameter lenses ( Scleral lenses) be fore insertion to reduce chemically induced lens intolerance.

Comfortable Keratoconus Contact Lenses -Is it Possible?

Can I Get Fitted for Comfortable Keratoconus Contact Lenses??

Keratoconus requires some form of hard(rigid) contact lenses to improve vision beyond what a pair of eyeglasses can provide.  The most frequent  complaints of keratoconus patients are ”  lenses are uncomfortable and hard to wear long enough hours to cover a typical day”.  All the keratoconic contact lenses – custom soft, RGP ( Rose K etc.), hybrid , scleral- have inherent comfort level characteristics but all can be reasonably comfortable if it is matched correctly.

What kind of Contact Lens Options are available?

Except eyeglasses and general soft contact lenses, there are more than few options are available for keratoconus. Custom made keratoconus soft lenses, Rigid Gas Permeable(RGP, ie Rose-K..)  lenses, Hybrid ( Synergeyes.. etc.) lenses, custom soft contact lenses ( Kerasoft..etc)  and Scleral ( Normal Eyes..  etc) are major groups of lenses that are commonly used for keratoconus fitting.

What are the differences of the lenses?

Here are my takes on the lenses;
1) Soft Lenses for Keratoconus :- very comfortable, fairly clear vision, great for early to moderate cases.
2) RGP lenses for Keratoconus( Rose K etc..): Very clear vision, not too comfortable, easy to use, great for most cases.
3) Hybrid lenses( Synergeye..etc) : Good clear Vision, Comfortable, somewhat difficult to use.
4) Scleral lenses( Normal Eyes, Rose K XL..etc): Good clear vision, great for advanced cases, relatively comfortable, somewhat difficult to use.

Which lens is the best for me?

There are no one lens that is the best for the every cases. The type of lenses should be  determined by condition of cornea and desired comfort level and easy of use. You should have a discussion with a contact lens specialist about your condition and pros and cons of your options. In our practice, we have many happy patients with different lens types. Some lenses may require more work than others to achieve desired comfort level and vision.




Vision After Botched Surgery

Are you having less than perfect vision with eyeglasses or soft contact lenses after eye surgery? You may need to have special contact lenses to improve your vision. After surgery, your corneal geometry might be changed such that normal contact lenses may not fit or correct your vision. We utilize vast number of special contact lenses to address these patients. Please let us know at the time of your appointment about your past eye surgeries, including LASIK.
