Zusammenfassung

Der Keratokonus ist eine nichtentzündliche Hornhauterkrankung, die mit einer kegelförmigen Vorwölbung und progressiven Verdünnung der Hornhaut einhergeht. Neben Progredienzkontrolle und stabilisierenden Interventionen kommt der optischen Korrektur des Sehfehlers, verursacht durch eine meist sehr irreguläre Hornhautoberfläche, hinsichtlich Lebensqualität und Arbeitsfähigkeit große Bedeutung zu. Dieses Ziel kann effektiv und komplikationsarm durch Kontaktlinsen erreicht werden. Diese Arbeit gibt einen aktuellen Überblick über die Kontaktlinsenanpassung beim Keratokonus und informiert über eigene Auswertungen zu diesem Thema.

Keratoconus lenses

The small correction miracle

Abstract

Keratoconus is a non-inflammatory corneal disease associated with a cone-shaped protrusion and progressive corneal thinning. Apart from progression control and stabilizing interventions, correcting the optical error induced by a mostly highly irregular corneal surface is of paramount importance with respect to quality of life and ability to work. This goal can be achieved efficiently by contact lenses with only rare adverse conditions. This article provides a current overview on contact lens fitting in keratoconus and presents own associated results.
