In the 1980's, this patient underwent 4 separate radial keratotomy surgeries in her right eye and 3 separate radial keratotomy surgeries in her left eye. For many years she suffered from pain in both eyes, visual distortions in both eyes and daily changes in her vision. In the years following her surgeries she visited a number of eye institutions seeking help only to be told that she would need corneal transplant surgery in both eyes. In 2010 she was examined in our office and fit with GVR Scleral lenses. For the past 5 years, she has been able to wear her lenses comfortably all day, with clear 20/20 vision and without any vision distortions.
