Deteriorating Vision After RK for Police Officer, now 20/20 with GVR Scleral Lens

This police officer underwent several Radial Keratotomy eye surgeries in 1988. As the years went by his vision began to deteriorate to the point where he could no longer do his work. He went to a number of eye clinics and eye institutions seeking help but was told that his only choice was to undergo corneal transplant surgery. Contact lenses proved painful and eyeglasses were not able to provide him with functional vision. In addition his vision was constantly changing during he day. At night he was experiencing halos, glare and multiple images with each eye. Last year we fit this office with GVR lenses. Since last year his vision has been stable. He can see clearly (20/20) during the day and at night without glare, halos or multiple images. In addition, he is able to wear his lenses all day comfortably without any eye irritation or redness.

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
