Zeiss Computerized Corneal Topography

Zeiss Computerized Corneal Topography: This technology allows us to map the front surface of the eye, the cornea. The computerized corneal topographer is used to measure the corneal contour and curvature of every point on the corneal surface. The instrument provides us with a corneal map which can help us diagnose early corneal disease and to help us design a specialty contact or scleral lens for a particular cornea. This map is much like an architectural plan. Every cornea is unique and different. The different colors that you see on the monitor on the wall indicated the “hills and valleys” of a cornea. Without these corneal maps, it would be very difficult to create the lenses we are now creating for our “high need” patient population. With this instrument we can detect at a very early stage corneal conditions such a Keratoconus, Pellucid Marginal Degeneration and a host of other corneal conditions. In addition, this instrument is invaluable in helping us to design specialty contact and scleral lenses.

Computerized Corneal Topography allows the surface of the cornea to be examined for hills and valleys.

The Wavefront Scleral Lens

The corneal irregularities created by refractive surgeries, such as LASIK and RK, are responsible for ghosting, halos, starbursting, and loss of contrast sensitivity. These "higher order aberrations" may exist on both the anterior and posterior. With aberrometry, the defects of the entire optical system can now be corrected by a scleral lens.

Autologous Serum for Dry Eyes

Dry eye conditions are among the most challenging conditions faced by refractive surgery patients. With autologous serum, blood is spun down to plasma, forming an eye drop that helps rehabilitate the cornea.

Optimum Infinite Gas Permeable Material

I am happy to announce that our Global Vision Rehabilitation Center will be designing and fitting all of our “high need” patients with the Optimum Infinite gas permeable contact lens material. The Optimum Infinite material is the most oxygen permeable material ever to be approved by the FDA. In addition, this newly FDA approved material includes a UV lens blocker. Now for the first time, with certain patients, wearing a scleral lens made with the Infinite material under extended wear conditions can be considered.

SMAP 3D Scleral Lens Design

NEW: Powerpoint presentation on SMAP 3D

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
