Effective Scleral Lens Solutions for Post-LASIK Complications

(913) 884-6800

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.

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.
