Radial Keratotomy followed by Lasik Equals More Vision Loss, now 20/20 with GVR Scleral Lens

The young woman in the middle of this photo lost quality vision and comfort due to Radial Keratotomy surgery done in the 1980’s followed by LASIK surgery a number of years later. When her vision began to fail following Radial Keratotomy, she was told by a LASIK surgeon that LASIK would improve her vision. What took place was additional vision loss, and a very deep depression when no one in her community was able to help her regain her vision. 4 years ago, this patient visited us seeking help. At the initial visit we fit her with GVR Scleral lenses which have allowed her to see clearly (20/20) once again with excellent comfort and all day wear. The young lady to my patient’s left is her little sister who accompanied my patient to Miami for her annual eye and vision examination.
