We recently received this lovely feedback letter from Brian a long term radial keratotomy patient from Oregon whom I have had the pleasure of knowing for about a decade and a half. Brian has done a wonderful job of chronicling the history and progress of the Laserfit Lens. Thank-you Brian. I'll … [Read more...] about RK patient recounts his 15 year journey using Dr. G’s sclerals
The Tyranny of Snellen
Dutch ophthalmologist Herman Snellen developed the chart in 1862. We are still using it to define human vision 154 years later. The phoroptor can trace its origins back to 1909. Today, 107 years later, it is still being used to test vision and calculate refractive error for eyeglasses and contact … [Read more...] about The Tyranny of Snellen
Laserfit Wavefront Optics: A Clear Difference for Keratoconus (and everybody else)
Wavefront optics can dramatically improve vision for keratoconus and other conditions. The Laserfit process begins by non-invasively creating a digital model of the entire front surface of the eye, and then designing a custom lens to fit that model. That’s only the beginning. The process then goes … [Read more...] about Laserfit Wavefront Optics: A Clear Difference for Keratoconus (and everybody else)
Keratoconus patient talks about Laserfit scleral lenses
I have recently returned from Dallas where I was fit with Laserfit wavefront scleral lenses. They are, without a doubt, the best contact lenses I have ever had! The vision is amazing, its High Definition compared to anything else I have ever tried and the comfort is amazing. I have tried a lot of … [Read more...] about Keratoconus patient talks about Laserfit scleral lenses
LASERFIT AND KERATOCONUS: How are we doing?
The Laserfit lens process with wavefront-guided optics is now in its fourth clinical year. It is the only wavefront-guided scleral lens system that is clinically available at the present time. The process is protected by 3 patents and additional patents … [Read more...] about LASERFIT AND KERATOCONUS: How are we doing?
Patient achieves perfect 20/10 vision with Laserfit technology
He ain’t heavy. He’s my scleral. Let’s face it, scleral lenses are like an overcoat: big, bulky, and ill-fitting. What happens when you take such a large piece of plastic, fill it with a milliliter of saline, and stick it on the eye? Under the forces of gravity and the upper eyelid it does the … [Read more...] about Patient achieves perfect 20/10 vision with Laserfit technology
Super vision possible with scleral contact lenses
Dr. G’s odyssey to aid compromised eyes has led to the creation of super-vision in a number of patients. What does this mean, and how is it done? Vision scientists have concluded that the human eye is actually capable of seeing 20/10 or better, and that the imperfect optics of the eye prevent this … [Read more...] about Super vision possible with scleral contact lenses
What are considered severe or complex vision issues?
Dr. G. has spent that past couple of decades figuring out ways of restoring “normal” vision to patients with complex vision issues. But what exactly is a complex vision issue? Is it the patient with the high prescription? Possibly. We define a complex vision issue as a refractive problem which … [Read more...] about What are considered severe or complex vision issues?
