Keratoconus Patient from Chile 20/20 with GVR Scleral Lens

The photo below is of a young woman with advanced keratoconus in both eyes and of her husband on the left. They both traveled from Santiago, Chile seeking help in restoring her vision. For many years she suffered from dry eyes along with blurred, distorted vision. Over the years she was fit with a variety of contact lenses, including scleral lenses which were not only uncomfortable but were unable to provide her with functional vision. Eyeglasses were not able to provide this patient with functional vision. Last week we fit this young woman with GVR Scleral lenses which for the first time in many years are allowing her to see not only clearly (20/20 vision in each eye) but also comfortably with all day lens wear. For many years she was fearful of needing to receive corneal transplants in both eyes. With the vision and comfort she is now experiencing, this young woman 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
