This patient was diagnosed with Keratoconus in 1988. He went to the Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Clinic and to many other doctors who were unsuccessful in treating him. He was prescribed RGP, Rigid Gas Permeable lenses – they were very uncomfortable and often they would pop out of his eyes. After failing with RGP lenses he was told he needs to have a corneal transplant. In 1999 he had the corneal transplant surgery. In the years to follow he was always told that the transplant was successful, but his vision had not improved. As time went on, he tried other lens options such as hybrid lenses, which again were very uncomfortable and didn’t last long. His doctor suggested that he see a scleral lens specialist – Dr. Irwin Azman. Dr. Azman prescribed him with PVR PROSE custom scleral lenses, which now provides him with 20/20 vision! After 30 years of poor vision he can finally enjoy the gift of sight.
