See I don't have your pentacam reports pre and post operative.keratoconus can lead to visual impairment. You can try rose K contact lens after proper trial and measurement. In keratoconus cornea becomes very steep and astigmatism goes quite high.about contact lens only rose K lens give you best fit.no other lens.
Next Steps
consult good cornea and refractive surgeon.
