EyePrint Pro

Many patients around the world suffer vision loss due to corneal disease, ocular trauma, corneal transplant surgery and refractive surgical procedures such as LASIK. Many of eyes that we see have very distorted and irregular ocular surfaces. Almost all of these patients due very well with scleral lenses. However, a few of the eyes that we see have ocular surfaces that so distorted that conventionally designed scleral lenses will not fit these eyes. In cases like these we use a new scleral lens technology known as the Eye Print Pro. This technology involves taking an impression of the ocular surface of the patient’s eye. This procedure is painless and lasts just a few minutes. The impression taken is sent to a special laboratory where 3-D printing technology is used to make a lens where every defect or “hill and valley” of the ocular surface is replicated onto the back surface of the Eye Print Pro Scleral lens. Comfort and vision are almost always excellent.

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
