RK followed by Lasik Advised to Have Transplant, Avoids Transplant with GVR Scleral Lens

In the 1980's this patient underwent several separate Radial Keratotomy surgeries in an attempt to eliminate her myopia and to improve her vision. When this failed, she underwent 2 separate LASIK procedures 15 years later. She went to a world renown eye institution about 12 years ago seeking help to restore her lost vision. They were unable to help her and informed her that her only option was to undergo corneal transplant surgery in each eye. We have been working with this patient diligently for the past 8 years trying every known lens design and material in existence in an effort to give her clear, comfortable vision with all day wear. Last year we fit her with a new GVR lens design which is providing her with what our goal initially was. She now has clear, comfortable vision with all day lens wear. I feel that she will never need to undergo corneal transplant surgery in either eye.
