Scleral Lenses reimbursed in France
Since October the 4th, 2007, Sclerals lenses are now
reimbursed in France as a prosthetic device for several indications, including
various Ocular Surface Diseases, notably corneal diseases and scarring and a
few visual indications as well. This is obviously a great victory for Keratos,
and its partners Amalyste and Keratocône, in France. Hopefully, other
countries will follow this example.
