Eye Print Pro Treats Highly Irregular Eye, From 20/800 to 20/20

The photo below is of an Eye Print Pro Scleral lens on an eye that suffered 2 separate retinal detachments within a 4 month period requiring 2 separate vitrectomy surgeries (surgeries to remove the interior "gel" within the eye known as the vitreous and replacing it with saline). In addition, cataract surgery was done after the first vitrectomy. Several months later, the intra-ocular lens dislodged into the posterior chamber of this eye requiring emergency surgery. For this reason, a 2nd vitrectomy was done along with a retinal surgical repair procedure known as a scleral buckle. Eye Print Pro Scleral lens technology allows us to make a lens from an impression of the front surface of the eye. A very gentle impression material known as Polyvinyl Siloxane is placed on a plastic holder which is then placed on the front surface of the eye and under the eye lids. After a few minutes, the plastic holder with the eye mold is removed and sent to our laboratory where a scleral lens matching the exact contour of the cornea and the white portion of the eye is made. This technology is designed to help patients whose ocular surfaces have been extremely altered due to disease and surgery see clearly once again. In the case of the eye shown in this photo, without the Eye Print Pro, the vision in this eye is less than 20/800. With the Eye Print Pro lens this eye is corrected to 20/20 vision without any distortions. The 2nd photo shows how the impression material appears on the eye. The procedure is fast and painless.

Optimum Infinite Gas Permeable Material

I am happy to announce that our Global Vision Rehabilitation Center will be designing and fitting all of our “high need” patients with the Optimum Infinite gas permeable contact lens material. The Optimum Infinite material is the most oxygen permeable material ever to be approved by the FDA. In addition, this newly FDA approved material includes a UV lens blocker. Now for the first time, with certain patients, wearing a scleral lens made with the Infinite material under extended wear conditions can be considered.

SMAP 3D Scleral Lens Design

NEW: Powerpoint presentation on SMAP 3D

Last year we introduced an exciting piece of technology that has allowed us to custom design a scleral lens much more accurately. It is the SMAP 3D, which is a computer attached to a dedicated camera that allows us to obtain a 3 dimensional image of the entire front surface of the eye, including the cornea and the surrounding white portion of the eye (the sclera). Up until now there has not been any technology that would allow us to measure the ocular curvatures outside the cornea. The SMAP allows us to do this. Read More

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
