Keratoconus Patient now 20/20 with Stable, Comfortable Vision with GVR Scleral Lens

This young woman was first diagnosed with keratoconus when she first enquired about LASIK surgery 14 years ago. LASIK surgery is contraindicated in patients with keratoconus. Over the past 14 years she visited a number of eye doctors, eye clinics and eye institutes seeking help. On a number of occasions she was fit with a variety of gas permeable and soft lenses. The soft lenses provided her did not improve her vision. The gas permeable rigid lenses would pop out of her eyes and were very uncomfortable. In addition, eyeglasses were not able to provide her with functional vision. Fearful that she might eventually need corneal transplant surgery this young woman decided to visit our office for yet another opinion. Several months ago, we fit this patient with GVR Scleral lenses which are providing her with clear (20/20), comfortable, stable vision without any distortions. This young woman 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
