Keratoconus represents a progressive non-inflammatory thinning and protrusion of the cornea. Most of them develops into high degree of irregular astigmatism. In clinic, the best management is fitting with rigid gas-permeable contact lenses, as these provide a regular refracting surface over the cone. Our study investigate the changes of Shape Discrimination Threshold (SDT) and The Quality of Vision (QoV) scale in keratoconus wearing RGP contact lenses, and to analyze glare quantitatively and qualitatively. In addition, we try to explore the relationship between the objective measurement and the subjective feeling of glare, to evaluate the influence of RGP contact lenses on glare of keratoconus comprehensively.
