Keratoconus Patient Facing Transplant Receives Scleral Lenses Instead

This patient has advanced keratoconus in both eyes. About 4 years ago she visited an internationally renown eye institution seeking proper treatment. While there she was told that her only option was corneal transplant surgery in both eyes as her condition was too advanced for contact lenses. Prior to this she had been wearing contact lenses but they were very painful and her vision was unstable. 4 years ago we fit this patient with GVR Scleral lenses which have provided her with clear (20/20) stable, comfortable vision with all day wear. Over the past 4 years her keratoconus has not progressed nor will it. Prior to wearing these unique lenses, this patient's life was defined by keratoconus. Not any longer. She is now living a normal visual life and functioning on the same level as those of us who do not have keratoconus.
