Keratoglobus is a rare noninflammatory corneal thinning disorder characterized by generalized thinning and globular protrusion of the cornea. Clinical presentation is characterized by progressive diminution resulting from irregular corneal topography with increased corneal fragility due to extreme thinning. Optical management usually involves in the form of spectacles or contact lenses. Contact lenses provide adequate vision for ectatic cornea without compromising the ocular health. Our case series discusses about the importance of the scleral lens modifications in improving vision as well as preventing corneal hydrops induced by scleral lenses.
