Series of Transplanted Corneas due to Lasik

This note is directed to those considering some form of LASIK combined with corneal transplant surgery. The photos below are of eyes that have undergone corneal transplant surgery. These corneas have either been rejected or are on the verge of rejection. These photos are just a small fraction of the corneas that I have on record. You should also know that the number 2 reason for corneal transplant surgery is rejection of the 1st corneal transplant. I have known many excellent corneal surgeons both in America and in other countries. The most competent and conscientious surgeons seek to avoid performing a corneal transplant at all costs. It is a surgery that should not be entered into without considerable thought. Over the years I have written a great deal about the dangers of LASIK and testified about this before an FDA panel in 2008 so I won't go into this here. If you are entering the medical profession just remember the most basic rule in medicine: "DO NO HARM".

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
