dc.description.abstractObjective: To present success of Toris-K contact lenses in keratoconus and traumatic keratopathy with irregular corneal surface. Methods: Toris-K contact lenses were used to treat 7 eyes of 4 patients with traumatic keratopathy (Case 1) or keratoconus (Case 2, Case 3, and Case 4). All cases had a complete eye examination before the contact lens application. The case with traumatic keratopathy was a 32-year-old male who had corneal penetrating injury due to hobnail strike 23 months ago. The other 3 keratoconus cases were females at the age of 14, 16 and 22 years old. They had high myopia and irregular astigmatism due to keratoconus. All patients refused using rigid gas permeable contact lens because of intolerance. Toris-K contact lenses were fitted on all eyes. All patients were followed-up for 28 months with a complete ophthalmic examination and corneal topography every two months.en_US
