RA: “I was straining my eyes when I was using the computer a lot, especially with the piggy back lenses.”
KeraSoft IC is a fully customisable soft lens for keratoconus and post-surgical corneas.
Manufactured from high water content hydrogel and Silicone Hydrogel materials, it provides all day comfort with vision comparable to other lens systems.
People who use KeraSoft IC find they no longer have to worry whether they are going to have a “bad eye day” or if they will actually be able to wear their lenses for that night out with their friends next week.
The majority of people with keratoconus are totally reliant on contact lenses to see properly.
They most often do not even have back up glasses, as the condition causes so much visual distortion, vision with them is completely blurred.
To “normal” contact lens wearers, who can simply swap to glasses at the end of a tiring day, this is hard to comprehend.
For someone with keratoconus, if you need to see, you need to wear your lenses. If you can’t wear them, you don’t see.
Contact lenses are a life line to normality. Without them, driving, working, travelling by public transport, sport or even reading a bed time story to your children is all but impossible.
This means that lenses that are uncomfortable, or even downright painful, still have to be worn in order to carry out tasks other people take for granted.
