Advanced Keratoconus Patient 20/20 with GVR Scleral Lens
This patient was diagnosed with an advanced case of keratoconus over 10 years ago. Over the years he visited a number of doctors who fit him with a variety of gas permeable lenses, hybrid lenses and soft lenses. None of the lenses that were provided him were able to give him functional vision along with good comfort. In 2013, we fit this patient with GVR Scleral lenses. With these lenses he was able to see clearly (20/20) during the day and at night with all day comfort. Last month this patient returned for his annual eye and vision examination. At this examination, both eyes were clear and he was still able to see clearly (20/20) with his GVR lenses with all day comfort. No changes were needed to be made to his lenses which were 2 years old. This patient will always be able to wear his lenses comfortably and will never need to undergo corneal transplant surgery or any other invasive procedures.
