This patient has a very advanced case of keratoconus in his right eye and was diagnosed with this condition 5 years before visiting our office. Over the years he had visited a number of doctors and eye clinics seeking help. Regular contact lenses were either painful to wear or were unable to provide him with clear vision. Prior to visiting our specialty practice he was told that the only option left for him was corneal transplant surgery in the right eye. 3 years ago we fit his right eye with a GVR Scleral lens. This lens has provided this patient's right eye with clear (20/20) comfortable vision with all day lens wear. For the last 3 years both of his corneas (he wears a soft lens on his left eye) are clear and stable. In my opinion, this patient will never need to undergo corneal transplant surgery.
