Rachel Seeing 20/20 in Each Eye with GVR Scleral Lens

This is a photo of me standing next to my keratoconus patient Rachel. Rachel has been my patient for about 18 years. She has an advanced case of keratoconus which is significantly more pronounced in her left eye. 7 years ago, Rachel underwent Collagen Cross linking in both eyes. At the same time, we fit both of Rachel's eyes with GVR Scleral lenses. Rachel's vision with these lenses is 20/20 in each eye. Without her lenses, Rachel's vision is about 20/800. Conventional contact lenses are not able to provide Rachel with functional vision. Rachel is able to wear her GVR lenses comfortably for all of her waking hours. For the past 7 years, Rachel's eyes have been stable and she is still wearing the same lenses I fit her with 7 years ago. Rachel will be able to wear her scleral lenses for many more years and 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
