Young keratoconus patient tries scleral lens

We completed a scleral lens fitting on a great 19 year old boy with Keratoconus!

▪️He was originally fit with a piggyback system (soft contact lens with a corneal gas permeable lens on top) and had to wear glasses on top.

▪️He had corneal cross linking surgery on the right eye and then was referred to us for a new contact lens fitting.

▪️He didn’t have a great experience with the piggyback system and complained of many corneal abrasions and difficulties. He also has a scar in that central temporal pupil.

▪️I wasn’t exactly sure what the vision potential would be, but we proceeded with a scleral lens fitting.

▪️We used the ampleye scleral lens, and with an over refraction, he was seeing 20/20! His mom was shocked and they were thrilled! There was some blanching at 12 and 6 and we need to adjust the sag by 200 um but it should be a straightforward order!

▪️Thank you Dr. Ortiz for trusting us!
