What is keratoconus?

Keratoconus is a condition that affects the shape and structure of the cornea (the clear outermost layer of the eye), causing it to thin and bulge like a cone. This eye condition can cause progressive vision loss, poor night vision, and glare. Keratoconus can affect both eyes, but it usually progresses at different rates.

Treatment options for keratoconus

Treatment for keratoconus depends on the severity of the condition. Mild to moderate cases can be managed with glasses or contact lenses. But as the condition progresses, it can become challenging to correct it using regular glasses or soft contact lenses. That’s where scleral lenses come in. They’re a great option for people with advanced keratoconus or other corneal irregularities. Scleral lenses are larger than traditional contact lenses and cover the entire cornea, resting on the white part of the eye called the sclera.

Corneo-scleral mapping for highly customizable scleral lenses

At Baymeadows Vision Center, we use the sMap3D™️ corneo-scleral topographer to create a highly detailed map of the cornea and sclera. This advanced technology enables us to develop a fully customizable scleral lens that accurately fits your eye shape and doesn’t cause discomfort. The 3D map helps us determine the precise measurements of your eye and create a lens that provides superior visual clarity and comfort.
