Cornea verticillata Cornea verticillata
Corneal Hydrops
Fungal keratitis Fungal Keratitis
A true excessively flat soft contact lens (or soft contact lens skirt as is the case in this hybrid lens) may have too much material to rest all of its surface touching the conjunctiva. The extra or excess material can ”flute” up causing a wrinkle at the edge of the lens and/or a bubble. Such a lens is generally uncomfortable because it moves excessively with the blink and because the eyelids hit that elevated material as they traverse the surface of the eye. Lens Fluting
Lipid keratopathy Lipid keratopathy
Meibomian Gland Disease
Non-proliferative sickle cell retinopathy
Orthokeratology - The fit seen here is ideal: there is slight pooling in the area outside of the visual axis compared to the center and there is seal off adjacent to the periphery. Orthokeratology
