Kerasoft IC - a breakthrough soft lens for Keratoconus and Irregular Corneas

These are unique and super confortable contact lenses meant for those who have Keratoconus or Scarred /Irregular Corneas and are not able to tolerate semisoft lenses. (The IC stands for Irregular Corneas.)


They have changed the way we manage all Keratoconus patients especially once they have undergone Corneal Collagen Crosslinking and have stable keratoconus and are now looking at improving their vision with lenses. 

They are also a useful alternative  for people who have had corneal injury or keratoplasty and have slightly irregular corneas and need to wear semisoft/ RGP lenses for better vision. 


You can see some video testimonials of patients here.

For more information you can also visit their corporate website at http://www.kerasoft.co.uk/patient-info/ or contact us at eyes@retinafoundation.com

KeraSoft IC Lenses are currently  available in Gujarat  only at Cornea Services, Retina Foundation , Ahmedabad  and WaveLase Eye Centre  , Ahmedabad.
