Author(s): Geetika Srivastava, Uma Sridhar, Yogeshwari Bansal, Atul Shrivastav
Abstract: Introduction: Keratoconus is a non-inflammatory, progressive thinning of the cornea that is usually bilateral and involves the central two-thirds of the cornea. Etiology is unknown and most likely multifactorial. 
Aims & Objectives: study evaluated the visual outcome and patient acceptability with Rose K contact lenses in patients with irregular astigmatism due to keratoconus. 
Material & Methods: About 14 patients (21 eyes) with keratoconus were fitted with Rose K lens in the Cornea Department of our institute between January 2012 to October 2012. All the patients underwent a complete ophthalmic examination and best-corrected visual acuity measurements were taken with glasses at the baseline visit. 
Results: There was a significant increase in visual acuity with Rose K lens compared with best corrected spectacle visual acuity. Conclusion: Rose K lens design is useful in the management of all grades of keratoconus.
