Radial Keratotomy Patient with Diminished Vision now 20/20 with GVR Scleral Lens

During the 1980s this patient underwent 3 separate Radial Keratotomy surgeries in an effort to eliminate his myopia and astigmatism. As the years went by his vision gradually started to deteriorate. His decreased vision was not correctable with either eyeglasses or contact lenses. Seeking an answer to his diminished vision, he visited several nationally renown eye institutions in 2001. Eventually one of these facilities performed 2 separate LASIK procedures over an 18 month period. The result of these 5 separate refractive surgeries was horribly distorted corneas with open R-K incisions, ocular pain and ever changing vision. 4 years ago we fit this patient with GVR Scleral lenses which have provided him with clear (20/20 vision), stable vision with all day comfort. Because these lenses also protect the injured corneas from the blinking action of the eyelids and the environment, he no longer has any ocular pain.
