Need help with problems caused by wearing scleral lensesHi! I had undergone Radial Keratotomy about 25 yrs ago. Since the last 6-7 years, I started having unclear morning vision, which improved as the day wore on. The problem went increasing, and now I have somewhat blurred and unclear vision throughout the day.
I recently found the answer to...
Cleaning sclerals without solution?After 5-6 hours after insertion, my lenses get really dirty and need to be removed/cleaned/re-inserted. But this time, they'll only last 3 hours. After cleaning again, they'll only last 2... you get the idea. It's frustrating to have to clean them 3-5x during the day.

My experience with keratoconus wearing scleralsHi all,
As a fellow specialty contact lens wearer, I'm interested to hear other people's experiences they've had. I was diagnosed with keratoconus ~5 years ago, and 3 years ago I switched from glasses into scleral lenses. I wore sclerals for ~2 years, and then switched eye doctors and got...
How do you use amidose?Hi. I am just wondering how to open amidose. The instruction says that I need to cut the top of the vial preferably with "a sterile instrument"... May anyone using amidose please tell me some specific practical ways to open amidose? Thanks.
Confusion about dexterity, practicality and filling solutionsHi. I live in England and got my pair of scleral lens from Dr. Ken Pullum. He suggested me use Lens Plus Ocupure to fill in my scleral lens before inserting them with my right hand.
This works generally well but when I attempt to switch to some preservative-free solution, it tend to...
Where to get scleral lenses?I was here for awhile and went away to continue my own journey to find relief. I'm sorry to say after many different treatments I have had no relief. Like many of you, my dry eyes are the most difficult thing in my life.
Now here is the thing that confuses me. I've read a lot about...
L8rgator started a topic Scleral Lens Plungers / Inserters - rubber or silicone
Scleral Lens Plungers / Inserters - rubber or siliconeI was shopping pricing out some plungers and I came across inserter plungers that are made out of silicone instead of rubber. They look the same, but thinner (and say "thin walls for easier squeezing"). And they are cheaper. Has anyone tried these?
Also, what do you use...

Dr Gemoules Coppell/Dallas TX, worth the trip for scleral contact lensI went to Dallas to get a scleral contact lens made in March 2014. Dr. G makes custom lenses from scratch using digital imaging and modeling of your eye. The process is trademarked, so it's not offered anywhere else (yet anyways). Getting an appointment was easy and I could get in right away. The...
Dr. Gemoules and my first Scleral LensA couple of weeks ago I wrote about researching lots of scleral lens makers, and my resulting trip to try the trial lens at U of I. It was a good experience, but after doing some additional careful evaluation, I decided to get my lens from Dr. Greg Gemoules in Coppell, TX at the Coppell Family Eyecare...

Dry Eye Triumph for a Facial Paresis PatientAs if the devastation of facial paralysis weren't enough on its own, there is the additional problem of caring for a dry eye since the facial nerve is involved in both lid closure and tear production. Five years ago, my left facial nerve was damaged during a surgical procedure. Since then my eye care...
Left side facial paralysis issuesI had very successful LASIK surgery in 2000 with 10 units of correction on the right side and 8 on the left with no need for enhancement. I had mild post-surgical dryness that resolved rapidly. I still consider LASIK to be one of the best medical expenditures I have made. I am also very glad that I...
