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.
