Effective Scleral Lens Solutions for Post-LASIK Complications

(864) 900-0671

Understanding Post-LASIK Complications

While LASIK surgery has offered many individuals the freedom from glasses and traditional contact lenses, it's important to acknowledge the potential for serious post-operative complications. These can include post-LASIK ectasia, severe and debilitating dry eye, neuropathic pain, herpetic reactivation leading to scarring, and exacerbated symptoms of Anterior Basement Membrane Dystrophy (ABMD) if overlooked before the procedure.

Post-LASIK Ectasia and Scleral Lenses

Post-LASIK ectasia, a progressive thinning and bulging of the cornea, is a rare but serious complication. Scleral lenses are often the preferred method of treatment for this condition. These lenses are specifically designed to vault over the cornea, providing support and maintaining the correct shape of the eye, thus offering improved visual clarity and comfort.

Managing Severe Dry Eye and Neuropathic Pain

Severe dry eye and neuropathic pain are other potential complications following LASIK. Scleral lenses play a crucial role in managing these conditions. Creating a reservoir of sterile saline solution between the lens and the cornea provides continuous hydration to the eye's surface, relieving symptoms of dryness and discomfort associated with neuropathic pain.

We were greeted cordially and within a few minutes taken into the examining room by the tech. (forgo... t name) She is professional yet friendly and easy to talk to. The Simpsonville/Greenville staff is friendly, approachable and efficient and I like working with them. I few years ago, that wasn't my experience and I was looking.for a new doctor. The transformation is remarkable. Dr. Sean has been my doctor for several years and has treated my several problems with my eyes. He is great - professional, approachable and competent as is the other doctor, the optometrists and the rest.

LOVE this place. If i’m paying a good chunk of money I like lots of tests to be ran and analyzed. ... They did just that. Wonderful and thorough and kind and just great. Office was pristine and smelled of nice vanilla too. Just a great experience all around.

Very friendly and easy to work with, I had my Cartiers adjusted and so my surprise they were able to... tighten my frames. Now I went to several other opticians and they wouldn’t even touch my frames lol. However, Revisions took care of me complimentary I would absolutely recommend them!

Scleral Lenses for Herpetic Reactivation and ABMD

In cases where LASIK triggers herpetic reactivation or worsens ABMD symptoms, scleral lenses can be a lifesaver. These conditions often result in corneal scarring and irregularities that standard lenses cannot address effectively. Scleral lenses offer a smooth optical surface over the cornea, helping to alleviate discomfort and improve vision.
