Keratoconus Patient now 20/20 with the GVR Scleral Lens

This young man was diagnosed with keratoconus in 2005. Over the years he visited a number of eye clinics and eye doctors seeking help with his vision. He was unable to see clearly with any eyeglasses provided to him. In addition, none the of the soft lenses that were given him provided him with functional vision. All of the gas permeable lenses that he received over the years were extremely uncomfortable, were constantly moving on his eyes and would often pop out. In an effort to stabilize his corneas and to avoid a corneal transplant, this young man underwent Collagen Cross-Linking earlier this year. Last month, this patient visited our office for the first time. When this patient first came in, his visual acuity was 20/40 in his right eye and less than 20/200 in his left eye. We fit this patient with GVR Scleral lenses which have allowed him to see clearly (20/20 in each eye) and comfortably with all day lens wear for the first time in over 10 years. This patient 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
