I-Kone

 

I-Kone: A Third Generation GP Lens for Keratoconus

Indication

  • Keratoconus or other cases of central corneal ectasia consequent to corneal graft, PRK, LASIK or trauma.
  • When alternative GP designs will not center or cause intolerable bearing forces on the central cornea

Description

  • Bi-surface aspheric design: both the anterior and posterior surfaces are aspheric.
  • Posterior surface made up of 4 zones to conform to the shape of the conic cornea:
    • First (base) and second zones address the ectasia
    • Third and fourth zones form the peripheral curve system, allowing an alignment fit over the non-ectatic cornea and a comfortable edge lift.
  • Adjust any of the 4 Zones to closely contour the cornea and provide optimum edge lift.
  • Pressure points reduced because the bearing forces are distributed over a larger area, resulting in:
    • Better comfort
    • Better centration
  • Aspheric anterior surface computed with goal to eliminate induced aberrations.
  • Large optical zones designed to provide better vision and reduce glare.
  • Available in keratoglobus and pellucid marginal degeneration designs.
  • Standard diameters: 9.6 mm and10.4 mm (diameters from 8.8 to 12.5 mm also available).
  • Made in advanced polymer materials exhibiting excellent oxygen permeability and wettability.

Diagnostic Lens Fitting Method

  • Apply trial lens with BC closest to steepest K-reading.
    • If K-readings are not available or reliable, select the 56 D lens.
  • Instill fluorescein:
    • Flat lens will show heavy central touch—select steeper BC.
    • Steep lens will show excessive vault—select flatter lens.
    • Optimal BC will show light touch or slight vault.
  • Over-refract and order final lens power.
  • Evaluate edge lift and order in standardized steps—flatter or steeper—to provide optimum peripheral fit.
