ROSE K Lens
Heralded as "a quantum leap forward in the evolution of lens design for the condition" of keratoconus the ROSE K lens has become the world's most frequently prescribed gas permeable contact lens for keratoconus.
Unlike traditional contact lenses, the complex geometry built into every ROSE K contact lens closely mimics the cone-like shape of the cornea for every stage of the condition.
The result is a more comfortable fitting lens for patients and better sight (visual acuity).
The ROSE K lenses' complex geometry has only become possible since computer-controlled contact lens lathes were developed to cut sophisticated oxygen permeable polymers to the right shape.
The ROSE K lens has a number of features that make it ideal for keratoconus:
The ROSE K lens design is recommended in Menicon Z material from Menicon Co., Ltd. Menicon materials were chosen for their high oxygen permeability and comfort.
