Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a disorder of the surface of the eye, where the cornea gradually becomes thinned and distorted. This leads to reduced and impaired vision as the normally dome-shaped cornea becomes irregular and cone shaped.

In the very early stages spectacles normally correct the blur and distortion. However, as the condition develops, spectacles are unable to fully correct the induced short-sightedness and astigmatism. Special types of contacts lenses can help manage the condition by restoring clear vision.

Parker & Hammond Opticians in Harrow and Northwood (London) specialise in contact lenses for keratoconus.

In mild forms of keratoconus where spectacles cannot provide satisfactory vision, custom-designed soft contact lenses can be used effectively. As the condition progresses, tailor-made rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses are required to achieve the optimal results for vision correction.

Our optometrists have a wealth of experience fitting patients with keratoconus both in private practice and hospital contact lens clinics. All aspects of visual correction and contact lens fittings are performed by our experienced and specialist optometrists.

Parker & Hammond Opticians in Harrow and Northwood, London fit a range of different contact lenses for keratoconus including Rose K, Kerasoft, SynergEyes ClearKone, UltraHealth, Dyna Intra-Limbal, SoClear, ICD and scleral contact lenses to name a few.
