Keratoconus Patient Facing Transplant Receives Scleral Lenses, Seeing Well

This patient was diagnosed with keratoconus at a very young age over 20 years ago. Over these years he had no functional vision in his left eye and blurred vision in the right eye which was partially corrected with conventional contact lenses. For over 20 years he was unable to find an eye doctor who could improve the vision in his left eye so that his 2 eyes could function together under binocular conditions. Doctors at a world famous eye institution told him that his only option was to have a corneal transplant in his left eye. Last year we examined this patient and fit him with GVR Scleral lenses. He now has clear, stable functional vision in both eyes with all day lens wear. His vision and eyes have been stable and I don't feel that he will ever 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
