Why EyePrint Pro?
Some patients are unable to have functional vision with their glasses because their cornea is not smooth and regular. Scleral lenses are used to help patients see much better than they can with their glasses. These lenses, in combination with the tear layer behind them, create a smooth surface to help patients see more clearly.
Often, patients are comfortable and happy wearing standard scleral lenses with standard lab-designed curvatures. However, some patients’ eyes have a unique shape or curvature, and standard lenses do not provide the fit and comfort that is desired. In those cases, an EyePrintPro lens may be advised.
EyePrintPRO is a specialty scleral contact lens designed for patients suffering from severe corneal or scleral irregularity. EyePrintPRO helps to improve vision for patients living with the following conditions:
- Irregular astigmatism
- Ocular surface disease (Dry Eye Syndrome)
- Pellucid Marginal Degeneration
- Chemical burns
- Extreme cases of deformed eyes
- Post-surgical corneas (post LASIK ectasia and corneal transplants)
- Stem cell failure
- Stevens-Johnson Syndrome
- Pterygium or Pinguecula
- Glaucoma filtering surgery or drainage tubes
How Does EyePrintPRO Work?
Once a comprehensive eye examination is performed and your doctor has determined that EyePrintPRO is the ideal solution for you, the fitting process will begin.
The EyePrint Impression Process is used to determine the EyePrintPRO scleral for you. The process is carried out in the office and can be completed within minutes. A non-toxic ocular compound that has been FDA-approved is used with an insertion device that is specifically designed for the eye. The impression process is gentle, pain-free, and very accurate, capturing all corneo-scleral irregularities.
The next step is to forward your EyePrint impression information to EyePrint Prosthetics, where they will design your highly-customized scleral lens. The process that Eyeprint Prosthetics uses provides the practitioner with the ability to fit the most complex of eyes.
The Journey from RGPs to Scleral Lenses and finally to EyePrintPRO
“Many patients who suffer from corneal disease or from post-corneal transplant complications go through a series of contact lens fits by various eye doctors. There is a range of different types of contact lenses that differ in cost, comfort, and effectiveness…”
