Keratoconus: Corneal Transplant, RGP lenses, to PVR Scleral lenses 20/20 Baltimore, Maryland


What brought me to your office
was my doctor, Dr. Hyatt who I’ve seen for a few years. He realized because
of my condition, he couldn’t really help me. So first he sent me to a
guy who had hybrid lenses. And so I got those,
but very uncomfortable. They didn’t last long. And so he said, try
these scleral lenses. So I looked online
fo someone who did scleral lenses and this was
the only office that came up. They have been a godsend. I was diagnosed with
keratoconus in 1988 when I was 15 years old. I went to the
[INAUDIBLE] Eye Clinic. I went to so many
different doctors. And they would try to get
the gas permeable lenses. And they didn’t– they
were very uncomfortable. I had some that would
just pop out of my eyes while I was driving. So I went to one place I said,
that’s not going to work. We’re going to give you
a corneal transplant. So I had a corneal
transplant in 1999 I think. And after the corneal
transplant, every time I went to a doctor’s
office, they would say, oh the transplant looks great
but it did help with the lens. And so for years, I would just
this eye used to be strong, but it just got weak because
it was doing all the work. I would just wear the glasses. And now to be able
to see, I tell people who have great vision
that they shouldn’t take it for granted because it’s
been 30 years since I’ve been able to see. Going to make me cry. I’ve already man, you
know, try to be strong. But I’ve me 2020 out of
this eye, and this one which was the bad one, which
was 20 off the chart, you know, and they would say,
can you see something up there, I could say, I know there’s
a E. But I just see light. That’s what you see. And now it’s 20/25. So I assume your quality of
life has greatly improved. Big time. Big time. Wonderful. I’ll drive and I’ll change eyes,
just to see what I can actually see out of the left eye. . Wonderful. Well I’m happy you found us
and most importantly, I’m happy that Dr. Azman
was able to help you. Me as well.
