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.

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
