Rigid contact lenses or glasses

What does it involve?

At an initial stage, keratoconus causes refractive errors that can be corrected with glasses. When irregularity increases, patients are only able to achieve good visual acuity with contact lenses.

When is it carried out?

Glasses can be used in the early stages of keratoconus. Contact lenses can also be used in the early stages, provided that the patient can tolerate wearing contact lenses and good visual acuity is achieved.

Prior examination
