In brief: Flat Corneas

Flat corneas present a real challenge because the contacts tend to move excessively.
You may need to have a custom contact lens designed for your eye. You may obtain better vision from a gas permeable hard contact lens. Call your local opthalmologist and optometrist for more information. If your current lenses don't work, then seek a second contact lens fitting elsewhere.

In brief: Flat cornea

Scleral contact lens or very large fitting lens might work.
Some lenses with silicone skirt might work too.
