Radial Keratotomy Patient Advised to Seek Transplant now 20/20 in Each Eye with GVR Scleral Lens

This patient visited out office last year from Argentina. 25 years ago he underwent 2 separate Radial Keratotomy surgeries in each eye followed by LASIK surgery in each eye in 2002. Over the years his best corrected visual acuity deteriorated to less than 20/50 in each eye with eyeglasses and contact lenses. After being told that he needed bilateral corneal transplants, he decided to visit us for a 2nd opinion. If you look carefully at the photos placed here you will notice that the RK incisions never healed but remained open. In addition all of these elective surgeries left both corneas extremely distorted and very dry. 15 months ago we fit this patient with GVR Scleral lenses. These lenses act as new corneas and are providing this patient with stable, clear (20/20) vision in each eye with excellent all day comfort. In addition, because these lenses vault over the corneas and keep the corneas in a liquid environment, dry eyes are no longer an issue.

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
