Enhancing Vision After Corneal Transplant Surgery

(864) 900-0671

The Scleral Lens Advantage

After a corneal transplant, achieving clear and comfortable vision may require some effort and patience. While corneal transplants offer promising results, complete resolution of vision issues without correction is not expected. Patients often encounter fluctuations in their sight during the healing process and will likely rely on specialty contact lenses and prescription glasses during and after recovery.

In such cases, scleral lenses may be an effective solution for achieving improved visual clarity and lasting comfort.

Three primary types of corneal transplants are commonly performed:

  1. Penetrating Keratoplasty: This procedure involves replacing the entire thickness of the cornea with healthy donor tissue.
  2. Endothelial Keratoplasty: Only the damaged corneal tissue is replaced, leaving healthy tissue intact.
  3. DALK: This procedure leaves the healthy thin posterior corneal layers intact, reducing rejection risk and graft failure.

Why Opt for a Corneal Transplant?

Corneal transplants are typically recommended in scenarios such as:

Corneal Scarring: Severe injuries or infections and corneal ectasias such as keratoconus can lead to corneal scarring.

Corneal Cloudiness: Conditions such as Fuchs dystrophy can result in vision loss due to corneal cloudiness.

Scleral Lenses: The Post-Corneal Transplant Solution

While corneal transplants are transformative, they may not fully address irregular corneas. Your Revision Optix - Greenville eye doctor may suggest options like rigid gas-permeable lenses (RGP's), hybrid contact lenses, or scleral lenses for enhanced vision.

Scleral lenses have a host of benefits, including:

  • Total Corneal Coverage

    Scleral lenses are custom-designed to vault entirely over the cornea without exerting pressure, ensuring optimal hydration for healing and comfort.

  • Enhanced Stability

    Their larger size compared to other lenses minimizes movement on the eye's surface, reducing the risk of irritation or abrasion.

  • Customized Comfort

    Scleral lenses are tailored to fit each individual's unique eye shape, ensuring personalized comfort and effectiveness.

  • Sustained Clarity

    The space between the lens and the cornea is filled with a hydrating saline solution, maintaining consistent moisture and preventing dryness.

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.
