Radial Keratotomy Equals Pain and Blurry Vision, but Clear and Comfortable with GVR Scleral Lens

This patient had 2 separate R-K (Radial Keratotomy) eye surgeries done in the 1980's. What followed were years of painfully red eyes along with blurred, distorted vision. Over the years she visited a number of eye clinics and institutions that provided her with many types of contact lenses and eyeglasses. None of these items provided her with functional vision. 6 years ago we examined this patient and fit her with GVR Scleral lenses. For the past 6 years she has had clear, undistorted functional vision. In addition she is able to wear her scleral lenses all day comfortably and her eyes are no longer red.
