Keratoconus Patient Seeing Well with GVR Scleral Lens
This patient was diagnosed with keratoconus 20 years prior to the time this photo was taken. Over the years he visited many doctors who provided him with many types of eyeglasses and contact lenses none of which allowed him to see clearly and comfortably. His left cornea is so debilitated that he was encouraged to undergo corneal transplant surgery in this eye. Last year we fit this patient with GVR Scleral lenses which have provided him with clear (20/20 right eye and 20/30 left eye) stable comfortable vision. For the past year his eyes have been stable and his keratoconus has not progressed. I don’t feel that he will ever need to undergo corneal transplant surgery.
