Your Scleral Lens 4 Step Easy Fitting Process
①VISIT US IN DALLAS, TEXAS
Plan to be with us for 5-7 working days for the Laserfit® Lens process. Most of the time only 5 days is needed, however in some complex cases an extra day or two may occasionally be necessary. Once your appointment has been confirmed, should you not be local to Dallas, it is time to make your travel plans and book hotel accommodation.
We recommend you book your stay with Staybridge Suites in Irving. They have a special discounted rate for Laserfit® patients. When your plane lands, give the Staybridge Suites hotel a call and their complimentary shuttle service will come and collect you. They are conveniently located only 3 miles away.
We suggest booking as soon as possible to avoid disappointment, as we are often booked up for many months in advance and can only accomodate a limited group of patients per week.
If you are from out of town, once you are checked into your room, we suggest you make use of the hotel’s free complimentary shuttle service to explore the sights, shops and restaurants of downtown Grapevine. The hotel shuttle will drop you off and collect you anywhere within 3 miles of the hotel. There is also the enormous Grapevine Mills Mall nearby. Many folks also enjoy a nostalgic train ride on our local Grapevine vintage railroad, which travels all the way to the old Fort Worth Stockyards.
③Daily Visits with Us
Each business day, the hotel shuttle will drop and collect you from our premises, which is only 3 miles away. On the first day you will spend about 2 hours with us. We will dilate your eyes and take the many scans needed for the design and manufacture of your precision scleral lens. On days 2-5, we will see you for a short 30-minute afternoon session, which will involve the fitting of that day’s newly fabricated lenses.
This will continue until we have the best fitting set of scleral lenses with best possible vision. During the process, you will be given a schedule for slowly increasing your scleral lens wear time and will be taught how to correctly insert, remove and care for your scleral lens.
④Return home with your New Scleral Lenses
You now have your very own set of custom Laserfit® scleral lenses. It’s now time to return home with your new vision and get back to enjoying life. Many of our patients leave with 20/15 or better vision and a new appreciation of the world seen in crisp, detailed focus.
