Effective Scleral Lens Solutions for Post-LASIK Complications

(972) 378-0707

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 have been a patient at Trinity Eye Care for about 20 years now -- my first visit was when I was 5,... and now I'm 26! Throughout all of my visits, everyone has been so kind, attentive and just all-around helpful. This is the only place where I've gotten my night/hard contacts, day/soft contacts and glasses (prescription and blue-light). Even though I now live in another city, I still visit Plano for my annual checkups. Moreover, my parents are also still patients! I don't foresee switching providers... ever. ◡̈

I am not new in the area, but had not ventured out to find eye care since moving to my area. I found... trinity eye care through someone else, and decided to give it a try. They are extremely thorough, up-to-date on their technology that they use, and immensely informative. I am so happy that I was able to find Dr. Youngblood and enjoyed working with for my eye care.

Not only are Dr. Pang and Mrs. Pang so incredibly kind, but they and the whole staff (shout out to M... ike and Kristina as well!) take the time to truly care and understand your needs and concerns. I was feeling a bit hopeless with my eyes and struggled to explain what was going on, and it's such a relief that people like Dr. Pang exist. Dr. Pang has been so thorough and meticulous and just all around wonderful, and I'm so fortunate that he is in the area. Coming here has been a real game changer for me and I'm so appreciative to everyone at the office. Again, just thank you so so so much!

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.
