The range of contact lens modalities currently available for the successful optical correction of keratoconus is greatly expanded. We review lens types currently available for the nonsurgical management of keratoconus, including rigid gas-permeable (GP) lenses, intralimbal lenses, corneoscleral lenses, scleral lenses, hybrid lenses, and piggyback lenses. In this review, we discuss the contemporary range of available lens types and the circumstances in which they are best used.
