Jason from Bahamas 20/20 in Each Eye with GVR Scleral Lens

This is a photo of me with our student doctors Jena Adelsberger on the left and Amanda Golchin on the right. Standing to my left is our patient Jason, visiting us from Nassau, Bahamas. Jason has an advanced case of keratoconus. Jason first visited our office about 20 years ago. When Jason first came in he was wearing soft lenses which provided him with 20/100 vision. Jason's left keratoconic cornea was much more advanced than his right cornea. Previous doctors advised Jason that he might need to undergo corneal transplant surgery in his left eye. We fit Jason with GVR lenses when he first came in which corrected his vision to 20/20 in each eye. Over the years, we made a number of minor changes to his GVR lenses but his keratoconus has essentially remained the same over the years. Today Jason came in for his yearly eye and vision examination. Jason's corrected visual acuity is still 20/20 in each eye and his specialty lenses are still allowing him to wear his lenses all of his waking hours with excellent comfort. Jason will never need to undergo corneal transplant surgery or any other invasive procedure.

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
