Pilot with Keratoconus Seeing Well with GVR Scleral Lens

This is a photo of student intern Tina Cheung with a patient with advanced keratoconus. This patient is an airline pilot who was diagnosed with keratoconus many years ago. He had been wearing gas permeable lenses which allowed him to see clearly but were becoming increasingly more uncomfortable. Wind in his eyes, dust and debris had become significant comfort issues. Earlier this year we refit both eyes with GVR Scleral lenses. He is now seeing clearly and comfortably once again with all day wear.
