Lasik 2006, Deteriorating Vision due to Ectasia in 2009, now 20/20 with GVR Scleral Lens

This patient had LASIK surgery done in 2006. For 3 years his vision was clear and stable. In 2009 his vision started to deteriorate rather suddenly. When he returned to his surgeon he was told that he had developed post-LASIK ectasia. Post-LASIK ectasia is a protrusion or distortion of the corneal surface. In an effort to stabilize and improve his vision he underwent Collagen Cross-linking in 2011. This is an in office procedure that strengthens the cornea and hopefully will improve the corneal surface. In 2013, this patient traveled to another country to have PRK laser surgery done. The intent of this surgery was to smooth out the cornea and improve this patient’s vision. Shortly after undergoing PRK surgery, we fit this patient with GVR Scleral lenses which have provided him with clear, comfortable, stable vision with all day lens wear. For the last 2 years his vision has remained the same and he is seeing 20/20 in each eye with his scleral lenses.
