Keratoconus Series

BCone - Beginning

  • BConeIndicated for patients with mild keratoconus with keratometry measurements of 39D-49D
  • The small posterior optic zone is surrounded by a controlled aspheric fitting area
  • The diameter and optic zone varies dependent on the steepness of the keratometric measurements
  • Easy 1st lens selection based on K readings
  • Trial fitting is recommended, but can easily be fit based on topography maps
  • The unique posterior surface employes the Controlled Edge Lift (CEL)* technology which improves first fit success
  • Manufactured with Focal Point Technology delivering exact reproducibility

SCone - Standard

  • SConeIndicated for most keratoconus patients and can be used with keratometric measurements from 46D-75D
  • Easy to fit emperically, with the added benefit of being able to specify the fitting zone radius
  • The small posterior optic zone is surrounded by a controlled aspheric fitting area
  • The diameter and optic zone varies depending on the steepness of the keratometric measurements
  • Flexibility in lens changes that ensure proper fit relationships
  • Trial fitting is recommended, but can easily be fit based on topography maps
  • The unique posterior surface employs CEL technology, improving first fit success
  • Manufactured with Focal Point Technology delivering exact reproducibility

CCone - Custom

  • CConeIndicated when stock lens designs provide an ineffective fitting relationship
  • Base curves are totally custom from 40D-75D
  • Lens diameters up to 12.0mm
  • Any configuration of base curve, power, diameter and posterior curvature that you desire
  • Manufactured with Focal Point Technology delivering exact reproducibility

Jupiter & Perimeter

  • JupiterRegular and irregular corneas unable to be adequately fit with small diameter corneal lenses
  • Symmetrical corneas where standard lenses cannot offer the stability or comfort
  • PerimeterAsymmetrical corneas that require a larger than standard lens but a full scleral design is too large
  • GP intolerant patients unable to achieve adequate vision with soft lenses • Hybrid lens candidates

KBA - Keratoconus Bi-Aspheric

KBA FittingThe #1 cone design in Australia is available on every continent and exclusively from Essilor in the US. It’s bi-aspheric design, large optic zone, and optimal apical clearance provides visual comfort & acuity.

The major features of the KBA design are its large, 10.2mm overall diameter and its adjustable posterior aspheric surface. Additionally, the anterior surface has a compensating aspheric curve that in effect renders the lens optically spherical.

A software program accompanies the KBA diagnostic set to assist the practitioner throughout all phases of the lens calculations.

Rose K

RoseKHeralded as "a quantum leap forward in the evolution of lens design for the condition" of keratoconus the Rose K lens has become the world's most frequently prescribed gas permeable contact lens for keratoconus.

Unlike traditional contact lenses, the complex geometry built into every Rose K contact lens closely mimics the cone like shape of the cornea, for every stage of the condition.

The result, a more comfortable fitting lens for patients and better sight (visual acuity).

The Rose K lenses complex geometry has only become possible since computer controlled contact lens lathes were developed to cut sophisticated oxygen permeable polymers to the right shape.

The Rose K lens has a number of features that make it ideal for keratoconus:

  1. It's complex geometry can be customized to suit each eye and can correct all of the myopia and astigmatism associated with Keratoconus:
  2. They are easy to insert, remove and clean
  3. They provide excellent health to the eye, because they allow the cornea to "breathe" oxygen directly through the lens
  4. Practitioners have the Rose K trial set fitting system which achieves a first fit success in over 80% of patients internationally.
