Lasik Patient with Large Pupils Seeing Clearly with GVR Scleral Lens

This patient underwent LASIK surgery in 2012. Soon after he noticed that his vision was not clear but "soft" and not sharp. He also noticed reduced vision indoors and at night. When he returned to his LASIK surgeon he was told that he was reading the 20/20 line and that there was nothing wrong with his vision. When he visited our office recently, we noted that he had 8mm pupils which I feel should have disqualified him from being considered for LASIK. In addition, the LASIK treatment zone was decentered which increased the visual distortions he was encountering, especially indoors and in the evening. We provided GVR Scleral lenses to this patient recently. He is now seeing clearly (20/20) in each eye comfortably with all day wear.

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
