Epi-Lasik over Transplant, now legally blind and light sensitive

The photos and images below are of the right and left eye of a 62 year old woman who underwent corneal transplant surgery in both eyes over 30 years ago followed by 2 "Epi- Lasik" surgeries in her right eye and 1 Epi-Lasik surgery in her left eye many years later. Both of her corneas are extremely distorted and she is legally blind in both eyes without corrective lenses. Both of her corneas are so distorted that eyeglasses and conventional contact lenses are not able to provide this patient with functional vision. In addition, this patient is so light sensitive that she has difficulties keeping her eyes open in brightly lite environments.The 3rd and 4th images are 3 dimensional views of both of her corneas which were generated by our computer. Epi-Lasik is a form of LASIK surgery. I do not know why these surgeries were done on this patient's corneas. Both of this patient's eyes were fit with scleral lenses which are allowing her to see clearly and comfortably for the first time in many years. In addition, with her scleral lenses she is no longer light sensitive.

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

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
