This is a photo of an eye that underwent 2 corneal transplants due to rejection of the first transplant. Shortly after the 2nd transplant was done, this eye developed an infection and inflammation deep within the interior of the eye which led to a retinal detachment and a collapse of the anterior chamber of the eye. These photos span a period of 18 months. This is now a blind eye with no light perception.

While the technology has become better, cornea transplant may still induce a significant amount of irregular astigmatism and higher order aberrations. These aberrations can be reduced or elminated with the GVR scleral lens.

This patient was told that he needed to have a corneal transplant on this eye is he was ever to have functional vision with this eye. We fit this eye with a scleral lens which is providing this patient with clear (20/20) comfortable vision.
