For private optoms, have you looked at the list here https://www.keratoconus-group.org.uk/optoms/index.php
There are optoms listed in all 3 towns. For lenses at NHS rates, you'd need a referral to a hospital eye clinic. The main one in the area is St James in Leeds, which has a contact lens dept and sees lots of people with KC.
