Eye Keratoconus And Scleral Lens Treatment: A New Perspective by Dr Edward Boshnick
Eye Keratoconus is an eye condition that affects millions around the world. It can lead to significant vision impairment and reduce the quality of life. Fortunately, advancements in optometry like scleral lenses treatment have brought new hope to those affected by keratoconus.
At Eyefreedom, Dr. Edward Boshnick, an expert in the field, offers cutting-edge scleral lens treatment for keratoconus. This comprehensive guide will explain what keratoconus is, the effectiveness of scleral lenses, and how Dr. Edward Boshnick uses them to transform his patients’ lives.
Understanding Eye Keratoconus
Eye Keratoconus is a progressive eye disorder that results in a thinning cornea. The normally round cornea deforms into a cone-like shape, leading to blurred vision and increased sensitivity to light and glare. Keratoconus typically first appears in individuals between the ages of 10 and 25, and progressively worsens over 10 to 20 years before slowing.
Scleral Lenses: The Revolutionary Treatment for Keratoconus
In this video I am showing a Latitude Scleral lens over an eye with keratoconus. The ocular surface of this eye is very distorted. Intacs plastic rings were surgically implanted into this cornea in an effort to minimize this distortion. This failed to take place. We designed this lens with the aid of the Smap 3D computer. With the lens seen here, this patient is corrected to 20/20 vision with all day comfortable lens wear.
Scleral lenses have revolutionized the treatment of keratoconus. Unlike traditional lenses, these innovative, large-diameter gas permeable contact lenses vault over the cornea and rest on the ‘white’ part of the eye, the sclera. This results in a smooth optical surface, replacing the distorted corneal surface, and leads to sharper, more comfortable vision.
