Jason from Bahamas 20/20 in Each Eye with GVR Scleral Lens
This is a photo of me with our student doctors Jena Adelsberger on the left and Amanda Golchin on the right. Standing to my left is our patient Jason, visiting us from Nassau, Bahamas. Jason has an advanced case of keratoconus. Jason first visited our office about 20 years ago. When Jason first came in he was wearing soft lenses which provided him with 20/100 vision. Jason’s left keratoconic cornea was much more advanced than his right cornea. Previous doctors advised Jason that he might need to undergo corneal transplant surgery in his left eye. We fit Jason with GVR lenses when he first came in which corrected his vision to 20/20 in each eye. Over the years, we made a number of minor changes to his GVR lenses but his keratoconus has essentially remained the same over the years. Today Jason came in for his yearly eye and vision examination. Jason’s corrected visual acuity is still 20/20 in each eye and his specialty lenses are still allowing him to wear his lenses all of his waking hours with excellent comfort. Jason will never need to undergo corneal transplant surgery or any other invasive procedure.
