RK - Do NOT try more Surgeries

This post is directed those who've lost quality vision due to Radial Keratotomy (RK) surgery. Below, are photos of different eyes that underwent RK surgery and later on went on to lose quality vision and ocular comfort. All of the patients whose eye photos you see here are now wearing scleral lenses. I strongly urge members of this group who have lost vision due to RK surgery to find a doctor experienced with scleral lens technology. In the photos posted below different dyes were used to highlight the corneal defects created by RK surgery. One word of caution: There are a number of corneal surgeons who are promoting additional surgeries to correct the problems created by RK surgery. There is no invasive procedure that will undo the damage the RK surgery created. Additional surgeries will increase the risk to further loss of vision and comfort.

Blurred Vision, Burning Eyes: This Is a Lasik Success?

EyePrint Pro

EyePrintPro technology creates a scleral lens based on a mold of the cornea. The molding is accurate to 1 or 2 microns and fits perfectly because it exactly mirrors the irregularities of the individual corneal surface. The technology is well suited for post-Lasik, Keratoconus, RK, eye injury, and corneal transplant patients. Read More in this PDF about EyePrintPro Scleral Lens Technology
