The primary aim of therapeutic contact lenses is to maintain ocular tissue integrity. Any improvement in vision is secondary.

The lenses protect the cornea from the shearing forces created by eyelid closure providing pain relief and promoting healing of the epithelium (several layers of cells that cover the front part of the cornea)

The lenses are also used to encourage tear retention across the corneal surface.

Clinical Indications

  • Bullous keratopathy
  • Filamentary keratitis
  • Thygesons's disease
  • Recurrent erosions
  • Persistent epithelial defects (ulcers)
  • Severe dry eye
  • Stevens-Johnson syndrome
  • Ocular cicatricial pemphigoid
  • Exposure keratopathy
  • Neurotrophic keratopathy

Contact lenses are used together with medical intervention. Sometimes surgical intervention is required. We always work in conjunction with ophthalmologists when dealing with these patients.

We have great experience with complex eyes. Depending from the condition the appropriate lens is used either in soft disposable form, tailored made soft or rigid gas permeable contact lens.
