  Keratoconus Contacts

People with keratoconus are usually fitted with an RGP (rigid gas permeable) contact lens, which retains its shape on the cornea. However, when the cornea is so irregular it needs cushioning, a “piggyback” technique may be best. “Piggybacking” refers to wearing two lenses on each eye. A soft lens drapes over the cornea and an RGP rests on top. Another option for some patients is a contact lens that has a rigid middle with a soft skirt around it.
