Patients with Keratoconus Gain Acuity with Pancorneal Toric Rigid Gas-Permeable CLs

Keratoconus Topography
"A novel pancorneal toric rigid gas-permeable contact lens significantly improved visual acuity and yielded discernable changes in corneal compression in patients with keratoconus, a study found." That's a post on the PCONSuperSite. "The retrospective study included 30 eyes with keratoconus that were fitted with a 12-mm contact lens with a toricity value of 0 to 1.2 between the end of the optical zone and the contact lens edge. Mean patient age was 48 years. Corneal topography was assessed at the time of patient enrollment and after at least 2 months of contact lens wear to determine horizontal and vertical keratometry values and mean corneal eccentricity. Best corrected visual acuity was also evaluated. Mean follow-up was 22 months."  Read more.
