Keratoconus Patient from Santiago, Chile 20/20 with GVR Scleral Lens

The young woman in this photo visited us from Santiago, Chile. For many years she has had poor vision due to advanced keratoconus.Over the years she tried unsuccessfully to wear soft lenses and various gas permeable lens designs. When she first came to visit us, her vision with her eye glasses was less than 20/200. In addition, she was unable function visually at night and in low light environments. Last year we fit this young woman with GVR Scleral lenses. With her scleral lenses she has clear (20/20) undistorted vision both at night and indoors. In addition, she is able to wear her lenses all day with excellent comfort. We examined this patient last week. Her corneas have remained stable and healthy since the first day that she began wearing these unique lenses. As long as she wears these health promoting lenses, this patient will never need to undergo corneal transplant surgery or any other invasive corneal surgeries.

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
