Someone suggested I start adding some content, so here is a simplified discussion of wavefront-guided lenses attached.

Dear Dr G

Thanks for the attachment. I would say a detailed solution like this is a must for complex optics and as such for all sclerals that are made.

Would it be possible for this technique to filter on to being used with mini Sclerals ? Corneosclerals ? Large diameter RGP lenses ? or even other lenses in the near future ? But maybe it's best how it is now ? Sorry for the questions on this.

Good to read yet another success and a Dr going further to restore vision.

Hi Remo.  Wavefront technology works best with scleral or mini-scleral lenses where the position and rotation of the lens can be precisely controlled.  It is all about control.  But it can be used with other lenses.  Even some soft lenses have been produced with wavefront technology, but have not achieved much success.  Mini-scleral covers the range of diameters from 16.0 mm to 18.0 mm.  The majority of Laserfit lenses are between 17.0 mm and 18.0 mm in diameter.  Those are sizes that most patients will find comfortable and easy to insert.

I am excited about what we have achieved with KC patients and others in reducing or eliminating the visual distortions, glare and night-time halos.

Dr G,

Out of interest, do you ever fit patients where a wavefront correction is not required? Where just the standard optics of your scleral lenses result in very low levels of wavefront aberrations

Good question BionicEyes.  Of course that is true, but the majority will get improvements with wavefront technology.  Just off-hand, the last couple of patients who did well with ordinary optics had pellucid marginal degeneration.  It all seems to hinge on the shape and location of the cone, presence of corneal rings, etc.

The things we specifically are targeting for improvement is low light glare and closely spaced double images on computer screens.  It's difficult when one has to sort out what one is seeing in the real world.

I am more comfortable speaking to the technophiles in the audience.

What we do at Laserfit is to design lenses and optics that are completely customized. Nothing is "off-the-shelf." Just as no two eyes are alike, no two lenses are alike. We have assembled some of the most sophisticated hardware and software to create freeform surfaces on lenses. We analyze data - power distribution maps of the eye, corneal shape, etc. We can manipulate surfaces in ways very few others can, measure those surfaces, and incorporate them into vision correction devices. Of course we can also do it the "old fashioned way," and we do ordinary optics as well.

We have made lots of progress but there is so much more to be made.

I can attest to the amazing results that can be achieved with Laserfit lenses.

Really restored my quality of vision I flew to Texas all the way from Australia to get these fitted with these Scleral lenses.

Dr Gemoules and staff even put my story up on the website. I do not have KC but I do have a disintegrated corneal Lasik flap .


My story can be read on the site if anyone cares to read it: http://laserfitlens.com/australia-to-texas-for-laserfit-scleral-lenses/
