Radial Keratotomy Patient with Diminished Vision now 20/20 with GVR Scleral Lens

During the 1980s this patient underwent 3 separate Radial Keratotomy surgeries in an effort to eliminate his myopia and astigmatism. As the years went by his vision gradually started to deteriorate. His decreased vision was not correctable with either eyeglasses or contact lenses. Seeking an answer to his diminished vision, he visited several nationally renown eye institutions in 2001. Eventually one of these facilities performed 2 separate LASIK procedures over an 18 month period. The result of these 5 separate refractive surgeries was horribly distorted corneas with open R-K incisions, ocular pain and ever changing vision. 4 years ago we fit this patient with GVR Scleral lenses which have provided him with clear (20/20 vision), stable vision with all day comfort. Because these lenses also protect the injured corneas from the blinking action of the eyelids and the environment, he no longer has any ocular pain.

SMAP 3D Scleral Lens Design

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
