Patient?s unaided visual acuity was 6/24 in both eye and with pinhole vision was 6/6. The topography value in right eye was K1 = 44.6 D, K2 = 45.3 D and in left eye was K1= 45.0D, K2= 45.8 D. At first the patient was advised to use rigid gas permeable lenses but because of the intolerance to RGP, soft contact lens trial was done.Patient was more comfortable, vision improved, and symptoms were reduced.
