Series of Transplanted Corneas due to Lasik

This note is directed to those considering some form of LASIK combined with corneal transplant surgery. The photos below are of eyes that have undergone corneal transplant surgery. These corneas have either been rejected or are on the verge of rejection. These photos are just a small fraction of the corneas that I have on record. You should also know that the number 2 reason for corneal transplant surgery is rejection of the 1st corneal transplant. I have known many excellent corneal surgeons both in America and in other countries. The most competent and conscientious surgeons seek to avoid performing a corneal transplant at all costs. It is a surgery that should not be entered into without considerable thought. Over the years I have written a great deal about the dangers of LASIK and testified about this before an FDA panel in 2008 so I won't go into this here. If you are entering the medical profession just remember the most basic rule in medicine: "DO NO HARM".

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
