Practitioners recently spent the day at Juul & Payne Advanced Eyecare in Clifton, Bristol to observe the benefits and fitting advice for KeraSoft IC, a soft contact lens for Irregular Corneas and Keratoconus. Lynn White and Josie Barlow shared their collective 55 years of professional experience in optics and in particular Lynn White discussed her 30 years’ experience working with Keratoconic patients. Lynn’s love affair with Keratoconus patients began in Trinidad where she was surprised to be seeing around 5 patients a week presenting with the eye disease and not wearing any form of vision correction. It was in Trinidad that Lynn discovered how KeraSoft can change peoples’ lives and help them to regain clearer vision.
KeraSoft IC Workshops provide a relaxed informative arena to discuss Keratoconus and Irregular Cornea management and share thoughts and ideas on current patients. With accommodating ‘guinea pig’ patients attending the Workshops there is ample opportunity to fit the lenses to real people and obtain some fitting experience before you embark on your practice building.
UltraVision’s Marketing Executive, Anna Smith, attended the workshop in Bristol and said “This was my first visit to a workshop held at an outside venue and I was really enthused to see the practitioners engaged and sharing advice and information in a great atmosphere”.
Practitioners wanting to be ahead of their game on specialist lenses should keep an eye out for UltraVision products to add to their tool box of contact lenses and provide their patients with a wider range of specialist, made to order contact lenses.
UltraVision’s focus at this year’s successful BCLA was KeraSoft® IC and its use alongside Corneal Cross Linking (CXL). This procedure promises to be the best hope for preventing progression of this condition which affects so many young lives.
Keratoconus expert, Lynn White, introduced delegates to Ashley who explained how KeraSoft® IC, in conjunction with CXL, changed his life. To view his testimonial and see how KeraSoft® IC and CXL gave him his life back visit www.kerasoft.co.uk.

3rd year students at Cardiff University have been learning about the applications of KeraSoft IC, a fully customisable and unique soft contact lens, which allows Keratoconus and Irregular Cornea patients the opportunity to continue wearing contact lenses, even when rigid contact lenses have become intolerable. Keratoconus expert, Lynn White and AOP Supplier of the Year, Josie Barlow gave the presentation to an audience of around 60 students where they explained the benefits of fitting Keratoconics with soft lenses; progressing from disposable lenses and eventually leading to specialty soft lenses such as KeraSoft IC.
Optometry students generally receive one or two lectures about Keratoconus in the 3rd year of their University course, so every opportunity to learn more about how to diagnose and treat the condition with soft lenses is invaluable to both students and Universities.
Keratoconus is an eye condition affecting 1 in 2000 people around the world and is largely treated with the use of contact lenses, as spectacles often do not provide useful vision for the majority of Keratoconus sufferers. KeraSoft IC, developed by UltraVision, is an ideal lens for those patients who cannot tolerate rigid contact lenses because of intolerance, complex corneal shapes, comfort, allergies or post graft, PMD or CXL procedures.
UltraVision is running Workshops for KeraSoft IC fitting and also have online training available. To find out further information about both of these excellent learning tools, please click here.
