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.
