GVR Scleral Lens over Advanced Keratoconus

This is a photo of an eye with an advanced keratoconus. Over this cornea there is a GVR Scleral lens. The milky-white haze
in the center of the cornea is a condition known as hydrops. This occurs when the cornea is so profound that the
most posterior layer of the cornea tears as a result of the pressures within the eye. Conventional contact lenses or
eyeglasses will not allow this eye to see clearly. With the GVR Scleral lens, this eye has 20/30 vision. Without this
lens, this eye has less than 20/800 vision.
