KERAROCONUS CONTACTS

EyePrint Prosthetic For Keratoconus Patient

Thank you Dr. Malik for your kind referral!

A 23 year old white male with Keratoconus was kindly referred to us for a specialty contact lens consultation.

With his glasses, he could achieve 20/400 in the right eye and 20/40 with ghosting and double vision in the left eye.

His topographies showed irregular astigmatism in each eye (right eye worse than the left eye). He does have striae and thinning on the right eye and thinning on the left eye. The rest of his ocular structures appeared normal.

After discussing the different options, he and his family decided on the EyePrint Prosthetic for each eye. We performed the impression on each eye in office, and the proceeded to a diagnostic scleral lens fitting to determine the vision potential.

The right eye went from 20/400 to 20/25-2 and the left eye went from 20/40 (ghosted and double) to 20/15-2 and no ghosting or double vision!

We sent the impressions out this evening, so the lab will start working on designing his devices early next week. We are thrilled for him! We cannot wait for his lenses to arrive!

Thanks again to Dr. Malik and his staff at Eyes and Optics for trusting us with his care! It’s always such a pleasure to be a part of a patient’s journey to better vision!

Severe Keratoconus In One Eye

We had the pleasure of seeing a lovely patient for a keratoconus consultation.

She was diagnosed with keratoconus in the left eye about 6-7 years ago by an eye doctor in Kansas. The doctor attempted a corneal gas permeable lens fit for the left eye, but she could not wear the lens due to the discomfort. She also complained of severe light sensitivity when the lens was in, and she stated it popped out a lot.

She moved to Las Vegas recently and saw a corneal specialist for a comprehensive eye eyes. She then found our office on the internet after seeking out an optometrist who specialized in medically necessary contact lenses for keratoconus.

Her topographies show a normal right eye and severe keratoconus in the left eye. The pachymetry is also very thin at the cone apex. She does have striae and some mild scarring inferior/central on the left cornea. The right eye can see 20/20 with glasses, and the left eye can see Count Fingers.

After reviewing all options, she decided to pursue the Latitude custom scleral lenses for each eye. We took 3D images with the sMap instrument, and then we worked with the Visionary Optics team to design custom scleral lenses.

With diagnostic scleral lenses, she was able to achieve 20/15 vision in the right eye and 20/60 in the left eye. She will be seen in about 2 weeks for her dispense. We are excited to help her see better!
