We adapted a lathe to the production of keratolenses. A cornea is mounted on a chuck and frozen at minus 40 degrees C. Hereafter we can cut the desired posterior radius and diameter. The first plano keratolens produced was used to correct keratoconus. The favourable result encouraged us to manufacture keratolenses for the correction of refractive errors.
