Enhancing Vision After Corneal Transplant Surgery

(913) 894-2020

The Scleral Lens Advantage

After a corneal transplant, achieving clear and comfortable vision may require some effort and patience. While corneal transplants offer promising results, complete resolution of vision issues without correction is not expected. Patients often encounter fluctuations in their sight during the healing process and will likely rely on specialty contact lenses and prescription glasses during and after recovery.

In such cases, scleral lenses may be an effective solution for achieving improved visual clarity and lasting comfort.

Three primary types of corneal transplants are commonly performed:

  1. Penetrating Keratoplasty: This procedure involves replacing the entire thickness of the cornea with healthy donor tissue.
  2. Endothelial Keratoplasty: Only the damaged corneal tissue is replaced, leaving healthy tissue intact.
  3. DALK: This procedure leaves the healthy thin posterior corneal layers intact, reducing rejection risk and graft failure.

Why Opt for a Corneal Transplant?

Corneal transplants are typically recommended in scenarios such as:

Corneal Scarring: Severe injuries or infections and corneal ectasias such as keratoconus can lead to corneal scarring.

Corneal Cloudiness: Conditions such as Fuchs dystrophy can result in vision loss due to corneal cloudiness.

Scleral Lenses: The Post-Corneal Transplant Solution

While corneal transplants are transformative, they may not fully address irregular corneas. Your CustomEyes - Lenexa eye doctor may suggest options like rigid gas-permeable lenses (RGP's), hybrid contact lenses, or scleral lenses for enhanced vision.

Scleral lenses have a host of benefits, including:

  • Total Corneal Coverage

    Scleral lenses are custom-designed to vault entirely over the cornea without exerting pressure, ensuring optimal hydration for healing and comfort.

  • Enhanced Stability

    Their larger size compared to other lenses minimizes movement on the eye's surface, reducing the risk of irritation or abrasion.

  • Customized Comfort

    Scleral lenses are tailored to fit each individual's unique eye shape, ensuring personalized comfort and effectiveness.

  • Sustained Clarity

    The space between the lens and the cornea is filled with a hydrating saline solution, maintaining consistent moisture and preventing dryness.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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+++

Unlock Post-Corneal Transplant Clarity with Scleral Lenses

At CustomEyes - Lenexa, we believe that your vision should never be a limitation to experiencing life to the fullest. If you're considering a corneal transplant or have already had this procedure, scleral lenses could be the transformative solution you've been searching for.

After a corneal transplant, it's common for patients to experience a period of adjustment as the eye adapts to the new cornea. This transition can result in nearsightedness or astigmatism, necessitating prescription glasses or lenses. However, scleral lenses offer a remarkable alternative, providing visual clarity and lasting comfort. 

Don't let vision challenges hold you back from embracing life's adventures. Schedule an appointment with CustomEyes - Lenexa today! Explore the possibilities of scleral lenses and experience the world with newfound clarity and relief.
