Young Woman Builds a Future with GVR Scleral Lens

This young woman was diagnosed with an advanced case of keratoconus in both eyes over 10 years ago. She had visited a number of eye doctors over the years including eye doctors and contact lens specialists at a world famous eye institution. When she could not have her vision restored she was told that her only option would be to have corneal transplant surgery. This patient first visited our office 10 years ago. The lenses she was wearing kept popping out of her eyes and were scarring her corneas. We fit this young woman with GVR lenses on her initial visit. Over the years we had to make minor changes to her specialty lenses but she was always able to wear her lenses all day comfortably with clear comfortable vision. We recently fit her with a newly designed GVR Scleral lens which has improved her vision beyond what she was able to achieve before. The corneal scarring has improved over the years with her lenses as has her ocular comfort. Since we first met, this young patient has finished college, gotten married and now has 2 beautiful children and a career. 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
