If you are suffering from Keratoconus than you know all too well how RGP contact lenses can be uncomfortable for everyday use. However there are some new improved contact lenses that have the strength and quality of RGP lenses and the softness of the normal contact lens. Since many are being diagnosed with Keratoconus earlier in their life contact lenses are a stable treatment option to keep through many stages of your Keratoconus.
Since Keratoconus is a progressive condition it is smart to choose a treatment option that can stretch over several stages of the condition. Additional treatment options include surgery for those who have a more advanced case of Keratoconus.
Below are some of the Benefits of Using Contact Lenses for the Treatment of Keratoconus:
Upgrade: High Definition- Think of the RGP lenses as an upgrade to your vision. The RGP lenses will allow you to view your surroundings in high definition and are easily maintained. If you are looking for a reliable and stable way to manage your visual experience the use of RGP lenses for your Keratoconus treatment is a great one.
Multiple stage use: The SynergEye ® Hybrid and Rose K Contact Lenses can be used to treat Keratoconus in many stages of the condition. This can provide some stability in the life of the patient, and offer great treatment with little changes to the eye. For those who want less doctor visits and less treatments for their Keratoconus this maybe a great choice for you.
Remember these are only a few of your options. There are many ways you can get educated about your treatments, and condition. Asking your eye care professional will help you get off to a great start. It is important that you not only know what to expect with Keratoconus, but also how it’s treated and how the treatments will effect you.
