Keratoconus patients are so rewarding!
A 22 year old female was referred to us from Dr. Wellish. She has keratoconus in both eyes. She had corneal crosslinking in the left eye 3 months ago. She will be getting corneal crosslinking in the right eye next month.
She complains of blurry vision, distorted vision, and fluctuating vision. She states her left eye has been a lazy eye for quite some time and she remembers that her vision in that eye was able to achieve 20/40 at one point.
With glasses, she could achieve 20/80 vision in the right eye and 20/200 in the left eye.
After reviewing all of the options, she decided to proceed with the Latitude custom scleral lens. We took 3D images of the left eye and used a diagnostic scleral lens to determine her vision. To our surprise, she was able to achieve 20/20 vision!
We built a trial frame for her and let her roam around the office so she could get a sense of what her new vision would be! She was thrilled and her mom was thrilled too!
Such a fun case, we can’t wait to see her back for her dispense.
