Blood Vessel Growth over RK incision

This is a photo of an eye that underwent RK surgery in the 1980's. Several years ago one of the RK incisions in the superior portion of this cornea ruptured causing a perforation of the cornea. The event took place during the cataract surgery. Suturing was done to close this wound. In this photo, you can see the scarring, inflammatory response and blood vessel growth over this RK incision. The point of my posting this photo and ocular history is to make sure that the surgeon who does your cataract surgery has a great deal of experience in operating on this type of eye. This eye was fit with a scleral lens which is allowing this patient to see clearly with this eye once again.

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

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
