A Few Words about Dr. Boshnick

A few words about Dr. Edward Boshnick and the Global Vision Rehabilitation Center:

Dr. Boshnick received his B.A. degree from the University of Miami and his doctorate degree from the Southern College of Optometry. After serving as a Captain in the U.S. Army Medical Service Corp for two years, Dr. Boshnick returned to Miami, Florida where he opened his specialty contact lens practice.

In the past 25 years, Dr. Boshnick has participated in over 100 clinical contact lens studies for major contact lens manufacturers. In addition, Dr.Boshnick has lectured and presented papers at national and international conferences.

Our specialty contact lens practice is known as the Global Vision Rehabilitation Center. Dr. Boshnick and his staff have dedicated themselves to the restoration of quality vision to those patients who have suffered vision loss due to keratoconus, corneal transplant surgery, refractive eye surgeries such as LASIK, R-K surgeries, chronic dry eye, ocular trauma, auto-immune disease and corneal dystrophies such as Stevens-Johnson Syndrome and many other ocular conditions.

The Global Vision Rehabilitation Center is one of the first specialty lens practices in North America to focus it's attention on this very special "high need" population. Patients who have suffered loss of quality vision and ocular comfort due to the conditions discussed above, can require a great deal of time to address. Our practice is dedicated to this special patient population and we are prepared to provide the time and effort needed to restore quality vision once again.

The Wavefront Scleral Lens

The corneal irregularities created by refractive surgeries, such as LASIK and RK, are responsible for ghosting, halos, starbursting, and loss of contrast sensitivity. These "higher order aberrations" may exist on both the anterior and posterior. With aberrometry, the defects of the entire optical system can now be corrected by a scleral lens.

Autologous Serum for Dry Eyes

Dry eye conditions are among the most challenging conditions faced by refractive surgery patients. With autologous serum, blood is spun down to plasma, forming an eye drop that helps rehabilitate the cornea.

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
