Course Description

This course will provide an overview of the contact lens treatment options for patients with Keratoconus (KCN). Varying designs of contact lenses for mild to advanced keratoconus will be discussed using case-based presentations.   

Recorded during our 2022 Finding Keratoconus Before it Finds You Series 

Lecture Objectives: 

Apply new knowledge for improved patient education of all available contact lens management strategies for keratoconus.  Apply new knowledge in identifying a patient with keratoconus who would be a candidate for contact lenses management.  Apply new knowledge of fitting strategies to improve outcomes of various contact lens options to match the keratoconus stage of the patient to the contact lens modality. Apply clinical protocols in fitting and follow up care for patients wearing contact lenses for Keratoconus. Apply new knowledge in fitting post-corneal surgery keratoconus patients, i.e. status- post- cross-linking or s/p pkp/dalk.  Apply new knowledge in utilizing scleral topography technology in fitting scleral lenses, applying higher order aberration technology in designing contact lenses.
