Radial Keratomy Patient with Pain, Distortions now 20/20 and Distortion-Free

In the 1980's, this patient underwent 4 separate radial keratotomy surgeries in her right eye and 3 separate radial keratotomy surgeries in her left eye. For many years she suffered from pain in both eyes, visual distortions in both eyes and daily changes in her vision. In the years following her surgeries she visited a number of eye institutions seeking help only to be told that she would need corneal transplant surgery in both eyes. In 2010 she was examined in our office and fit with GVR Scleral lenses. For the past 5 years, she has been able to wear her lenses comfortably all day, with clear 20/20 vision and without any vision distortions.

Optimum Infinite Gas Permeable Material

I am happy to announce that our Global Vision Rehabilitation Center will be designing and fitting all of our “high need” patients with the Optimum Infinite gas permeable contact lens material. The Optimum Infinite material is the most oxygen permeable material ever to be approved by the FDA. In addition, this newly FDA approved material includes a UV lens blocker. Now for the first time, with certain patients, wearing a scleral lens made with the Infinite material under extended wear conditions can be considered.

SMAP 3D Scleral Lens Design

NEW: Powerpoint presentation on SMAP 3D

Last year we introduced an exciting piece of technology that has allowed us to custom design a scleral lens much more accurately. It is the SMAP 3D, which is a computer attached to a dedicated camera that allows us to obtain a 3 dimensional image of the entire front surface of the eye, including the cornea and the surrounding white portion of the eye (the sclera). Up until now there has not been any technology that would allow us to measure the ocular curvatures outside the cornea. The SMAP allows us to do this. Read More

Blurred Vision, Burning Eyes: This Is a Lasik Success?

EyePrint Pro

EyePrintPro technology creates a scleral lens based on a mold of the cornea. The molding is accurate to 1 or 2 microns and fits perfectly because it exactly mirrors the irregularities of the individual corneal surface. The technology is well suited for post-Lasik, Keratoconus, RK, eye injury, and corneal transplant patients. Read More in this PDF about EyePrintPro Scleral Lens Technology
