This patient was diagnosed with keratoconus in 1956. Over the years his keratoconus progressed and was advised by 6 corneal specialists over a 50 year period that he needed to have corneal transplant surgery done in both eyes. He was fit with many different types of contact lenses which caused extreme discomfort and corneal scarring. 8 years ago, we fit this patient with GVR Scleral lenses which have provided him with clear, comfortable and stable vision with all day wear. He never underwent corneal transplant surgery and I doubt that he every will. By the way, his vision without his GVR Scleral lenses is less than 20/2000. With these lenses his visual acuity is 20/30.
