This patient was diagnosed with keratoconus over 20 years ago. Over these years he was fit with a variety of contact lenses, both gas permeable and soft lenses. All of the gas permeable contact lenses given to him were were either uncomfortable or painful. In addition, these lenses would often pop out of his eyes. The specialty soft lenses that he was fit with did not provide him with functional vision. When this patient first visited out office 3 months ago, his uncorrected vision was less than 20/1000 in each eye. With his corrective lenses his vision was less than 20/100. 3 months ago we fit this young man with GVR Scleral lenses which are providing him with clear (20/20 vision in each eye) stable vision without any vision distortions and all day comfortable lens wear. This patient will never need to undergo corneal transplant surgery. Information about this unique technology can be found at:www.sclerallens.com.
