Radial keratotomy and scleraL lenses

Update on our 79 year old patient!

▪️If you recall, our RK patient (with moderate cataracts OU and sutures OD) returned for her 2 week follow up after her dispense.

▪️With her Latitude custom scleral lenses, she was able to achieve 20/25- in the right eye and 20/20- in the left eye (despite the air bubble in the lens).

▪️She had adequate central clearance in each eye and the edges were still perfectly aligned.

▪️She had a few issues in the beginning with insertion but after the first 4 days she became proficient.

▪️We reviewed her lens care system and she was following the prescribed protocol perfectly.

▪️She is incredibly happy with her vision with the lenses, and she has recently started to make jewelry again.

▪️She saw Dr. Wellish the day prior, and he was pleased with the state of her eyes too!

▪️Grateful to be a part of this patient’s vision rehabilitation journey!
