Patients with irregular corneas or keratoconus require a detailed custom contact lens fitting in order to maintain good eye health and an adequate level of vision. Eyecare Center of Colorado Springs offer patients with specialty conditions a variety of lens options ranging from soft, gas permeable, or hybrid contact lenses. Fitting these types of contact lenses is a specialty of Eye Care Center of Colorado Springs, and we often find a lens option that provides both comfortable and usable vision. Dr. Bro and Dr. Whitney are trained in and continuously study the most current treatment innovations in custom lens designs for irregular corneas and keratoconus. Learn more about the types of specialty lenses we offer including those for patients suffering from astgmatism, keratoconus and irregular cornea.
An optically clear prosthetic scleral cover shell designed to match the exact contours of the individual eye providing the best vision and comfort possible. These lenses are ideal for patients with corneal disease or misshapen eyes who have been unsuccessful with many other types of lenses. In minutes the EyePrint Impression process captures the curvature of the eye and a 3D scanner is used to create a custom lens which is a precise match of your eye.
Specialty Contact Lenses for Keratoconus and Irregular Cornea
Kerasoft ® IC
We now offer a new lens for keratoconus called the Kerasoft ® IC. Currently, we are the first and only provider in Southern Colorado to offer this new product for irregular corneas. This life changing lens is a complete system to enable healthy management of irregular corneas through a customizable soft contact lens. For those suffering from keratoconus or irregular corneas, the unique design of this lens provides comfortable wear and excellent vision all day, seven days a week. Each lens is custom-made for your exact need and provides many ocular health benefits. The Kerasoft ® IC lens allows most patients suffering with any type of irregular cornea to attain levels of comfort and vision they had not previously thought possible.
Scleral gas permeable lenses are an excellent option for highly irregular corneas caused by keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, and post surgical conditions such as RK, PRK, LASIK, & PKP. These lenses are custom-made to vault over the entire cornea, bathing the eye in a tear layer that fills in the spaces of the irregular corneal surface. This minimizes streaky or distorted vision and provides excellent vision with comfort that is superior to traditional small diameter gas permeable lenses. Ask Dr. Bro or Dr. Whitney about scleral contact lenses for normal corneas or dry eye relief.
Synergeyes Hybrid Contact Lens
Synergeyes Hybrid lenses feature a rigid gas permeable lens with a flexible soft skirt that rests on the eye. This lens provides the crisp vision of a rigid contact lens with the comfort of a soft lens. Synergeyes lenses offer consistent clarity of vision for patients with high levels of astigmatism, irregular corneal astigmatism, and keratoconus.
