Aim: This observational clinical case series examined patients with keratoconus (KC) fit with keratoconic bi-aspheric (KBA) lenses to assess visual acuity (VA), wavefront aberrations, physiological fitting, subjective comfort, and manufacturer’s fitting guidelines. Materials and methods: Seven adult patients (11 eyes, four females, mean age: 34.15 ± 14.12) with nipple cones from the Hadassah Academic College contact lens clinic (Jerusalem, Israel) were fit with KBA lenses by modifying the… Expand

Cone location and correction of keratoconus with rigid gas-permeable contact lenses.
TLDR
Cone location has no effect on the RGP corrected visual acuities and residual astigmatism in patients with keratoconus and Pearson's correlation analysis shows that there is a statistically significant relationship between corneal cylinder and BSCVA and RGPVA. Expand
Rigid contact lens fitting based on keratometry readings in keratoconus patients: predicting formula.
TLDR
The development of new formulas for RGP fitting enables ophthalmologists to work with confidence and prevents unnecessary and frequent lens trials, which help to save time and costs. Expand
Rigid contact lens fitting relationships in keratoconus
TLDR
Despite the potential risk for corneal scarring imposed by flat-fitting rigid contact lenses, most CLEK Study patients wear flat- fitting lenses, and the current standard of care with regard to the apical fitting relationship in keratoconus remains undocumented. Expand
A Prospective Clinical Evaluation of a New Scleral Contact Lens for Patients with Distorted Corneas
TLDR
RGP scleral contact lenses can be comfortably worn for approximately 7 hours, improve visual acuity, and reduce higher order wavefront aberrations. Expand
Short-term Outcomes of Collagen Crosslinking for Early Keratoconus
TLDR
Collagen crosslinking demonstrated significant improvement in vision with reduction in corneal power and spherical equivalent refractive error in eyes with early keratoconus. Expand
Topography-Based RGP Lens Fitting in Normal Corneas: The Relevance of Eyelid and Tear Film Attributes
TLDR
Eyelid position and tear meniscus height attributes, not taken into consideration by topography-based lens fitting software, influence RGP lens parameter selection. Expand
Rigid contact lens fitting relationships in keratoconus. Collaborative Longitudinal Evaluation of Keratoconus (CLEK) Study Group.
TLDR
Despite the potential risk for corneal scarring imposed by flat-fitting rigid contact lenses, most CLEK Study patients wear flat- fitting lenses, and the average lens is flatter than the first definite apical clearance lens. Expand
Baseline findings in the Collaborative Longitudinal Evaluation of Keratoconus (CLEK) Study.
TLDR
Baseline findings suggest that keratoconus is not associated with increased risk of connective tissue disease and that most patients in the CLEK Study sample represent mild to moderate keratconus. Expand
Visual Performance and Comfort with the Rose K Lens for Keratoconus
TLDR
The successful fit rate and patient preference demonstrate the usefulness of the Rose K lens in clinical practice and Subjective assessment of vision and comfort indicate a statistical improvement for more advanced keratoconus with theRose K lens. Expand
[Keratoconus screening in a Lebanese students' population].
TLDR
Keratoconus is a prevalent disease among the population of Lebanese medical students, which confirms the clinical impression that keratconus is relatively frequent in Lebanon. Expand
