This patient has an advanced keratoconic right eye and a transplanted cornea on his left eye. Both corneas are so distorted that he barely functions with his eyeglasses. Over the years he was fit with a variety of contact lenses which he could not tolerate. He was contemplating having a corneal transplant in his right eye before visiting our office. Last year we examined this young man and fit him with GVR Scleral lenses. With his GVR Scleral lenses he is able to see clearly (20/20) once again with all day comfort. It is interesting to know that prior to receiving these lenses, his eyes were red most of the time and he suffered from periodic eye pain. Since receiving these lenses his eyes are no longer red and he no longer suffers from any eye pain or discomfort.
