RGP contact lenses
RGP (rigid) contact lenses can be worn by anybody but are especially good for those with high prescriptions and irregular-shaped corneas. They can give excellent vision and be very comfortable although they must be worn regularly to keep them comfortable and are not suitable for occasional wear.
Using corneal topography (link) an RGP lens can be made to fit almost anybody whilst being durable and long-lasting.
An RGP lens can be used on irregularly-shaped eyes such as in Keratoconus and can even be used to correct your vision overnight as part of OrthoK (link) vision therapy.
