Patients Diagnosed with Keratoconus 45 years ago Receives GVR Scleral Lenses

The patient in the center of this photo was diagnosed with keratoconus 45 years ago. Over these many years he visited many eye doctors and eye clinics seeking help. After being fit with many different types of hard, hybrid and soft contact lenses he visited a world famous eye institution where he was told that he needed to undergo corneal transplant surgery in both eyes. Last month we fit him with GVR Scleral lenses. Now for the first time in many years he can see clearly and comfortably both at near and at far without any visual distortions. As long as he is able to wear his GVR Scleral lenses this patient will never need to undergo corneal transplant surgery. Today, this patient told us “These lenses are life changing.” The young woman on the left is our student extern, Tina Cheung who will become an eye doctor before the end of May, 2015.
