Internationally Known Author Bill Cortright 20/20 with GVR Scleral Lens

This is a photo of me and internationally renown author and speaker Bill Cortright. Bill is an expert in the field of wellness, anti-aging, weight loss and stress management and is the author of the best seller "The Stress Response Diet." Bill was diagnosed with an advanced case of keratoconus by us about 8 years ago. Prior to visiting us, he was provided with a number of soft and rigid contact lenses which were not able to provide him with functional vision. All of the lenses provided to him prior to his initial visit with us were very uncomfortable and unstable on his eyes. At his initial visit, his corrected visual acuity was 20/60 with his right eye and less than 20/800 with his left eye. The keratoconus in his left eye is so advanced that no spectacle or contact lens was able to provide any semblance of functional vision. 8 years ago we fit both of this patient's eyes with GVR Scleral lenses. With these lenses, Bill has been able to see clearly (20/20 vision in each eye) and comfortably with all day lens wear. Over the past 8 years, Bill's eyes and corneas have remained stable and clear. It is my feeling that Bill 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

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
