This young woman was first diagnosed with keratoconus when she first enquired about LASIK surgery 14 years ago. LASIK surgery is contraindicated in patients with keratoconus. Over the past 14 years she visited a number of eye doctors, eye clinics and eye institutes seeking help. On a number of occasions she was fit with a variety of gas permeable and soft lenses. The soft lenses provided her did not improve her vision. The gas permeable rigid lenses would pop out of her eyes and were very uncomfortable. In addition, eyeglasses were not able to provide her with functional vision. Fearful that she might eventually need corneal transplant surgery this young woman decided to visit our office for yet another opinion. Several months ago, we fit this patient with GVR Scleral lenses which are providing her with clear (20/20), comfortable, stable vision without any distortions. This young woman will never need to undergo corneal transplant surgery.
