Correcting Residual Prescriptions

Once the progression of Keratoconus stopped there are treatments available to correct prescription caused by the disease.


Once the progression of Keratoconus has naturally stabilised or has been halted with Collagen Cross Linking, there are treatments available to correct prescriptions caused by the disease but the prescription must be stable, which can take up to a year for it to be consistently stable.

At AVC we are one of the only clinics in the country that provides total visual rehabilitation and we have a variety of treatments to permanently correct the visual issues caused by Keratoconus.

Once the prescription is stable, the treatment recommended will be determined by a Keratoconus specialist after comprehensive testing at a consultation. As Keratoconus weakens the structure of the cornea, it is recommended that no further stress is put in the area which is why Keratoconus sufferers are not allowed to have laser treatment even if it is stable. However there are three non-laser treatments available to correct the vision: Implantable Contact Lens, Piggy Back lenses and Clear Lens Exchange.

Implantable Contact Lenses (ICL)

This is ideal for sufferers of Keratoconus under the age of 40 and is able to correct complex prescriptions with high astigmatisms. It is the only vision correction treatment that is reversible.

Implantable Contact Lenses (ICL)

Clear Lens Exchange (CLE)

This is designed for patients over the age of 40 that have developed a reading prescription. For Keratoconus we provide a range of Monofocal lenses that are able to correct complex astigmatisms.

Clear Lens Exchange (CLE)

Piggy Back Lenses

This is for patients with extremely complex prescriptions and corneal abnormalities found in advanced cases of Keratoconus. It involves two different lenses being inserted into the eye.

"They [AVC] could not have been more helpful. As we know, this isn’t always the case with after-sales care but Dr Pillai’s team were very welcoming and he explained how a tiny adjustment was needed via a further operation, which he promptly carried out at no cost. His approach, and the professionalism of all his team at Advanced Vision Care, is absolutely first class, and I would have no hesitation in recommending him. He is certainly a man of his word."
