I have been using the Rose K lens design as a lens of first choice since it was introduced in the United States. I have successfully fit hundreds of patients with the design, most of whom had failed other lens designs and were prepared to have surgery.
As you know, I work at a University hospital with four Cornea Specialists. They have so much confidence in our ability to successfully manage the keratoconus patients with contact lenses that they routinely have the patient's that are referred to them for a corneal transplant see us first.
Over the years, I have had the opportunity to introduce hundreds of other contact lens practitioners to the value of your lens design and simple fitting system. I am continually rewarded with gratitude from those that have taken my recommendation.
A number of local practitioners have told me that they do not find keratoconus patients as challenging as they once thought and now have the confidence to manage them.
I am proud to share this technology with others so that more patients are able to appreciate the benefits of all day comfort with contact lenses.
