We recently had a patient come in from Oxnard with Keratoconus. The patient was complaining of discomfort and blurred vision, and the patient also had some issues with night driving due to glare. Our optometrist recommended that the patient switch from glasses to custom fit Scleral Lens Contacts.
Following our Optometrist's recommendation, our patient was fit with custom scleral lenses that rest on the white of the eye.
During a follow up appointment we asked our patient to describe his experience.
"Originally I was concerned that I was wasting time visiting Ventura for another attempt at getting my contacts to feel ok. Dr. Bajwa was so knowledgable and the practice was not only beautiful but also had some really advanced technology. The optometrist recommeneded Scleral lenses which I had never heard of, but after explaining to me the benefits for patients with Keratoconus, I figured it was worth a shot. And boy was I in for a surprise. The Scleral contact lenses blew me away! The vision was something I had not experienced since I was 15 years old. And the comfort level was beyond impressive. I am so happy that I took the optometrists recommendation and decided to go with the scleral contact lenses. I highly recommend Scleral Lenses to people with Keratoconus.
