Refractive Surgery is Dangerous, Check out these Photos

Just in case there are new members to this group who have doubts about the risks and dangers of refractive eye surgeries please look carefully at the 10 photos presented below. These photos are of 10 different eyes that are severely damaged by these surgeries. Some of these eyes underwent RK (Radial Keratotomy) surgery, others underwent LASIK, PRK, CK, ALK or a combination of these surgeries. I took all of these photos and I can tell you that getting these patients to see once again with these damaged eyes was a time consuming and expensive process (or journey as I prefer to call it). The last photo shown below is of an eye that underwent LASIK surgery and developed a 360 degree retinal detachment several years later which created a completely blind eye. These photos were taken with different instuements and cameras which is why the images differ. A special dye was placed on these eyes before these images were taken in order to better highlight the damage to the ocular surface.

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
