Scleral Lens Fitting at Carlsson Family Eye Center
Dr. Carlsson maintains a cutting-edge practice devoted to the restoration of vision and comfort lost as a result of refractive eye surgery (including LASIK and Radial Keratotomy [RK]), keratoconus, corneal transplant surgery, pellucid marginal degeneration, extreme dry eye, corneal dystrophies, corneal trauma and other corneal related complications affecting one’s vision.
New designs and materials used to make scleral lenses have vastly improved over the years allowing optometrists to find solutions for patients with vision problems as a result of some of the most complicated cases involving corneal disease and trauma. These lenses are now allowing patients who were otherwise frustrated and hopeless due to their irregular corneal conditions find answers and new hope to seeing again.
Unfortunately for these patients, typical glasses and conventional contact lens wear don’t work to provide the quality vision these patients are desperately seeking to regain in order to get their lives back and see again!
“I have had challenges with my vision for years due to RK performed nearly 30 years ago. My vision has been variable and I have not been able to get clarity in my vision since the RK so many years ago. My ophthalmologist suggested that I visit Dr. Carlsson since he felt he was the best in the valley for contacts generally, and absolutely the best for special cases like mine.
I made an appointment with Dr. Carlsson, his staff was very professional and courteous. When I went to the appointment, Dr. Carlsson was right on time and they had scheduled the time required to for a VERY complete evaluation, including a computer scanning of the eye surface to make sure my circumstances were properly diagnosed, and that Dr. Carlsson would be able to find a contact solution unique to my circumstances. He even scheduled time right before his lunch to make sure he was not rushed to spend the time required to properly study, find the right eye solution and then work with me through multiple fitting sessions and adjustments to make sure the contact and my vision was perfect, and that the lens sit perfectly on my eye for total comfort. There were many, many adjustments he needed to make, and he and his wonderful staff spent the time with me to make sure all was perfect.
My vision is unbelievably clear and exacting (I have never experienced this before) and now I cannot stand to wear even glasses for clarity and comfort–these new Zen lenses, as fitted by Dr. Carlsson are unlike anything I have experienced. No matter you vision needs, I cannot recommend Dr. Carlsson highly enough. I have never been to an eye-care professional like him, and will no doubt be going back with any need I have in the future. – Barry S.
