Keratoconus Patient from Argentina 20/20 and 20/25 with GVR Scleral Lens

This patient has a very advanced case of keratoconus in both eyes and visited us from Buenos Aires, Argentina seeking help. Back home he was fit with small gas permeable lenses which kept of popping out of his eyes and causing him great distress. Because his left cornea is so much more profound, he gave up wearing any type of contact lens on his left eye and functioned with only one contact lens. In Argentina, he was given only 2 choices: hard contact lenses or corneal transplant surgery. In 2013, both of this patients eyes were fit with GVR Scleral lenses. With these lenses he is able to see 20/20 with his right eye and 20/25 with his left eye. This past week he went through a yearly examination in our office. Both of his eyes and corneas have remained stable and he has been able to maintain stable, clear and comfortable vision with all day lens wear. In my opinion, he 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
