Patients Diagnosed with Keratoconus 45 years ago Receives GVR Scleral Lenses

The patient in the center of this photo was diagnosed with keratoconus 45 years ago. Over these many years he visited many eye doctors and eye clinics seeking help. After being fit with many different types of hard, hybrid and soft contact lenses he visited a world famous eye institution where he was told that he needed to undergo corneal transplant surgery in both eyes. Last month we fit him with GVR Scleral lenses. Now for the first time in many years he can see clearly and comfortably both at near and at far without any visual distortions. As long as he is able to wear his GVR Scleral lenses this patient will never need to undergo corneal transplant surgery. Today, this patient told us "These lenses are life changing." The young woman on the left is our student extern, Tina Cheung who will become an eye doctor before the end of May, 2015.

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
