Keratoconus Patient free of Distortions with GVR Scleral Lens

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

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
