“The Impact of Conepower Technology: Improvement for Keratoconus Patients”

“Discover how the Conepower Technology positively impacts patients with keratoconus, an eye condition. Learn more about this innovative development and how Progest helped protect this invention.”

Keratoconus is an eye condition in which the cornea slowly thins and distorts into a cone shape, which can lead to distortion of the image on the retina and loss of vision. Although the exact cause of keratoconus is not yet fully understood, genetic predisposition combined with environmental factors, such as excessive eye friction, allergies and UV exposure, appear to play a role. The condition is more common in people with allergies, asthma and connective tissue disorders.

Keratoconus manifests with symptoms such as blurred or distorted vision, light sensitivity, eye fatigue and an increase in myopia or astigmatism. In the early stages, glasses or standard contact lenses can relieve symptoms. Advanced cases, however, often require scleral lenses, which cover the entire white part of the eye rather than just the cornea. These lenses are made of comfortable gas-permeable material and create tear fluid storage between the lens and cornea to protect the eye and improve vision. In the most advanced cases, a corneal transplant may be necessary.

A groundbreaking development has led to Scleral lenses optimized with Conepower Technology. This technology improves visual clarity for all patients with keratoconus who already wear scleral lenses. The improvements, depending on your symptoms, will surprise you.
