Effective Scleral Lens Solutions for Post-LASIK Complications

(913) 894-2020

Understanding Post-LASIK Complications

While LASIK surgery has offered many individuals the freedom from glasses and traditional contact lenses, it's important to acknowledge the potential for serious post-operative complications. These can include post-LASIK ectasia, severe and debilitating dry eye, neuropathic pain, herpetic reactivation leading to scarring, and exacerbated symptoms of Anterior Basement Membrane Dystrophy (ABMD) if overlooked before the procedure.

Post-LASIK Ectasia and Scleral Lenses

Post-LASIK ectasia, a progressive thinning and bulging of the cornea, is a rare but serious complication. Scleral lenses are often the preferred method of treatment for this condition. These lenses are specifically designed to vault over the cornea, providing support and maintaining the correct shape of the eye, thus offering improved visual clarity and comfort.

Managing Severe Dry Eye and Neuropathic Pain

Severe dry eye and neuropathic pain are other potential complications following LASIK. Scleral lenses play a crucial role in managing these conditions. Creating a reservoir of sterile saline solution between the lens and the cornea provides continuous hydration to the eye's surface, relieving symptoms of dryness and discomfort associated with neuropathic pain.

I've been going here for awhile. The people upfront often change but everyone is always very nice an... d friendly. Dr. Luebbe is the best! She is very nice and personable. I mainly just wanted to shout her out.

Dr Luebbe did a great job with my eye exam and the front didn't hesitate to place my lenses in frame... s I brought in from elsewhere. They handled my insurance with no issues. I believe it was two weeks to get them made. I'm a new glasses wearer and so far it's been fantastic.

Custom Eyes was efficient and very helpful with frame selection.

Wonderful staff - smart, kind, answered questions clearly, and didn't try to hard-sell ridiculously ... expensive frames on people.

Wonderful, thoughtful service. My new eye care company.

It was very easy to schedule an appointment online. Everyone at the practice is very friendly and he... lpful! Dr. Luebbe does a great job of a full examination and explains why she is asking questions, and walks you through any suggestions she has. They even gave a suggestion of where I could find the recommended over the counter eye drops for the lowest price, I didn't even have to ask. This was a great experience and I will definitely go back!

Staff was super friendly, nice and helpful. Store was very clean, they really keep up on sanitizing ... an instrument right after it was used.

The best service I have ever Experienced. They went above and beyond. I would Recommend them to anyo... ne who needs a eye doctor and to get glasses. They Doctor took his time with me and explained everything and Traci who was so patient with me I had a hard time choosing frames and she was right there helping me out picked a fabulous pair she explained all the details that would be put in my glasses. Probably the best service I have experienced over the past year I’ve seen 4 Eye doctors and they are by far by far the best.

Very professional, friendly staff and optometrists. They are very knowledgeable and trustworthy. My ... eyes will go no where but to Custom Eyes! Thank you for all you do.

I’ve been to many eye doctors. I’ve not had one that would sit and talk with me and geek out abo... ut the cool eye tests they do. I had one of the more advanced eye tests done that replaces actually dilating the eye. After the test he showed me what he was looking at on the computer. It was so very interesting and educational. The check in process and pre-exam as well as the exit process was all very enjoyable as well. The staff is all top notch. Let me add in how clean and sanitized it was as well. I will return and recommend.

Quickly got in with only a brief wait. Staff were very friendly and professional. Really appreciate ... Dr. Drake and his great care. Stephanie helped me get my eyeglasses at the end and brought out a few pairs for me to try that weren’t out. Very helpful and got the right color and size. Yay!

A great team with awesome customer service! Dr. Cossette creates a fun and relaxed atmosphere during... exams, along with careful and thorough explanations. Highly recommend.

The Staff was very knowledgeable and accepted the Eyes Of Hope Voucher I received when my home burnt... down last December. The Doctor gave me a script and confidence and told me my vision was better than what I thought it was. The staff member helped me find a perfect frame was so humble and patient with me even after she found out I had no money. The staff member went above and beyond making my morning okay. I rate 10/10 A+++

Scleral Lenses for Herpetic Reactivation and ABMD

In cases where LASIK triggers herpetic reactivation or worsens ABMD symptoms, scleral lenses can be a lifesaver. These conditions often result in corneal scarring and irregularities that standard lenses cannot address effectively. Scleral lenses offer a smooth optical surface over the cornea, helping to alleviate discomfort and improve vision.
