About Keratoconus > Treatment for Keratoconus
In early stage keratoconus, distortion of vision can be treated using glasses to correct minor myopia (nearsightedness) and astigmatism caused by the condition. As keratoconus advances, gas permeable (GP) contact lenses are the first choice to correct vision. Most of the time, this is a permanent remedy.
The ROSE K lens has a number of features that make it ideal for keratoconus and is internationally recognised as the leading lens for the treatment of keratoconus.
As a result the entire lens fits better over the eye leading to better comfort and optimum visual acuity (sharpness) for patients. However due to the progressive nature of the condition, it is important that lenses are fitted with great care and reassessed at least annually by your eye care practitioner.
