RK - Do NOT try more Surgeries

This post is directed those who've lost quality vision due to Radial Keratotomy (RK) surgery. Below, are photos of different eyes that underwent RK surgery and later on went on to lose quality vision and ocular comfort. All of the patients whose eye photos you see here are now wearing scleral lenses. I strongly urge members of this group who have lost vision due to RK surgery to find a doctor experienced with scleral lens technology. In the photos posted below different dyes were used to highlight the corneal defects created by RK surgery. One word of caution: There are a number of corneal surgeons who are promoting additional surgeries to correct the problems created by RK surgery. There is no invasive procedure that will undo the damage the RK surgery created. Additional surgeries will increase the risk to further loss of vision and comfort.

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
