Keratoconus Patient from Mexico 20/20 with Scleral Lenses

This patient recently visited our office from Vera Cruz, Mexico. For many years she suffered vision loss due to keratoconus. The doctors who she visited in Mexico had told her that she needed either corneal transplant surgery or Intacs surgery. Conventional contact lenses were very uncomfortable and she was unable to function with eyeglasses due to the blurred, distorted vision that eyeglasses provided. 4 years ago this patient first visited our office. At that time we fit her with GVR Scleral lenses. Over the years she has returned for periodic follow-up care. She has been able to see clearly (20/20 vision) with both eyes, with stable, comfortable vision with all day lens wear. In addition, this patient will never need corneal transplant or Intacs surgery. For the past 4 years her eyes have remained stable.

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
