Physician with Keratoconus from Chile Now 20/20 with Scleral Lenses

This patient is a physician with an advanced case of keratoconus who came to us from Santiago, Chile. Prior to coming here, her vision was so compromised that she found it extremely difficult to take care of her patients. Conventional contact lenses and eyeglasses did not provide her with the visual acuity she needed to do her job. In addition, all of her prior contact lenses were extremely uncomfortable. Last year we provided her with GVR Scleral lenses. She recently returned for her yearly examination. For the past year she has had clear, stable 20/20 vision and has been able to wear her lenses all day comfortably. Prior to coming here she was contemplating having corneal transplant surgery. Her corneas have been stable over the past year and she will never need to undergo corneal transplant surgery.

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
