Advanced Keratoconus Patient 20/20 with GVR Scleral Lens

This patient was diagnosed with an advanced case of keratoconus over 10 years ago. Over the years he visited a number of doctors who fit him with a variety of gas permeable lenses, hybrid lenses and soft lenses. None of the lenses that were provided him were able to give him functional vision along with good comfort. In 2013, we fit this patient with GVR Scleral lenses. With these lenses he was able to see clearly (20/20) during the day and at night with all day comfort. Last month this patient returned for his annual eye and vision examination. At this examination, both eyes were clear and he was still able to see clearly (20/20) with his GVR lenses with all day comfort. No changes were needed to be made to his lenses which were 2 years old. This patient will always be able to wear his lenses comfortably and will never need to undergo corneal transplant surgery or any other invasive procedures.

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
