Hi Beth,


Just had to say that these things are very rare and getting pictures of conditions like the ones above are even rarer and so thats why they have been posted.


This is a quote from the link below...


"A lens that is too steep shows apical pooling and peripheral touch. This results in seal-off, causing poor tear exchange, possible lens adhesion and trapped bubbles leading to dimple veiling."


The other links below touch on this topic as well, plus the links covers some other in-depth info. that may cause distress although if your CLF knows about these things, then there is no problem, as things can be so very easily avoided, to get the best/right fit...

Some interesting focused on kc info.
