Hope for Lasik Complications Patients

This patient had lasik surgery done 10 years ago. 3 years later he developed ectasia in this eye. this is how he now sees without a GVR Scleral lens

.

These two cross-sectional images were taken with a technology known as Ocular Coherence Tomography or “OCT.” These are images of an eye that underwent 2 separate R-K surgeries followed by 2 separate LASIK surgeries. These are images of the same cornea (in cross-section) as if the eye was pointed to the sky. The images were taken at 2 different cross-sectional “cuts” in much the same way as if you were cutting a pie from 12:00 O’Clock to 6:00 O’Clock and another cut from 9:00 O’Clock to 3:00 O’Clock.

The top 2 curved lines represent the front and back surface of the scleral lens which is fit over the corneal surface. The thick curved grey structure is the cornea in cross-section. In the top image note the 3 “bubble like” protrusions. This is the corneal epithelium or outer cellular layer of the cornea separating from the underlying cornea. On the back surface of the cornea note a fine membrane “hanging” from the back surface of the cornea. This is known as “Descemet’s Membrane.” The structural damage seen in these images is due to a cornea weakened from stresses placed on it by multiple surgeries which took place many years prior.

The damaged caused by the 4 refractive surgical procedures resulted in this patient losing significant vision and suffering ocular pain for many years. She is now seeing clearly with gas permeable scleral lenses without ocular pain.

Critics of Lasik

dr. oz speaks out against LasikIn this video, Dr. Oz speaks out about lack of safety with LASIK, noting that half of patients are back in glasses in just a few years.

Dr. Morris Waxler against LASIKDr. Morris Waxler led the clinical trials at FDA when LASIK was approved. Dr. Waxler now says on his website, HelpStopLasik.com, that the Lasik industry deceived the FDA about the safety of LASIK. It's not a matter of choosing the right doctor. Lasik is simply unsafe in any circumstance. In the videos below, he is interviewed by prominent news organizations:

UPDATE July 28th 2014. Morris Waxler requests reconsideration of rejected petition to ban LASIK. See Waxler's important comments here

"People who say it can't be done
shouldn't interrupt the guy doing it."

In addition to being an eye care provider, under the direction of Dr. Edward Boshnick, The Global Vision Rehabilitation Center is also a teaching resource for contact lens specialists visiting us from all parts of North America. At the present time, Dr. Boshnick is adjunct professor of contact lenses at the following Optometry colleges:

  • 1. Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University
  • 2. New England College of Optometry
  • 3. Southern College of Optometry
