Radial Keratotomy followed by Lasik Equals More Vision Loss, now 20/20 with GVR Scleral Lens

The young woman in the middle of this photo lost quality vision and comfort due to Radial Keratotomy surgery done in the 1980's followed by LASIK surgery a number of years later. When her vision began to fail following Radial Keratotomy, she was told by a LASIK surgeon that LASIK would improve her vision. What took place was additional vision loss, and a very deep depression when no one in her community was able to help her regain her vision. 4 years ago, this patient visited us seeking help. At the initial visit we fit her with GVR Scleral lenses which have allowed her to see clearly (20/20) once again with excellent comfort and all day wear. The young lady to my patient's left is her little sister who accompanied my patient to Miami for her annual eye and vision examination.

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
