The best way to treat corneal warpage is to stop wearing contact lenses and allow the conreas to heal themselves. Depending on what kind of lenses you have been wearing, your age and how badly they were warped, it may take anything from a week to many months for them to stablise. Some doctors and opthamologists recommend you attend their clinic for regular topography checks during this time. They’re looking for the cornears to regain a normal shape and as this happens your prescription may change, sometimes worsening.
Some people worry about how they are going to manage in this time, but often they find that the blur they used to complain of when wearing spectacles improves rapidly once contact lenses aren’t used at all. The important thing is not to cheat by thinking you can wear contacts for just a few hours and it not effect the healing process.
An increase in astigmatism at this time sometimes occurs, but this is not really a deterioration because it was only hidden by the warpage.
When vision has stablized your opthamolgist may prescribe new contact lenses, refractive surgery, implants or continued use of glasses.
