From Legally Blind To 20/20 Vision... How Miraculous And Wonderful!
Meet our featured patient of the week, Arlene Bravo. Arlene came to our office last week stating that she could not see clearly during the past 3 years because of her eye condition, which is commonly known as Keratoconus. Now being legally blind, she mentioned that her eyeglasses could no longer help her see the blackboard at school, allow her to drive a car safely, or even recognize the face of family and friends across the room...all the little blessings that we all take for granted had slowly and systematically been taken away from her because of her eye condition.
The good news is that special hybrid lenses can be used very effectively for patients such as Arlene who exhibit cornea dystrophies such as Keratoconus, or even cornea transplant recipients who often remain legally blind... even after successful transplant surgery. These life changing hybrid contact lenses actually fit over the cornea surface of patients with scarred or disfigured corneas... which was the case for Arlene with dramatic and life-changing results.
Thirty five minutes after insertion of Arlene's new micro-thin lenses from our office, she was easily able to read 20/20 out each eye, and an amazing 20/15 binocular vision with both eyes together! We have included a picture of Arlene's flourescene pattern under dark room analysis which shows her perfect lens placement and ideal tear circulation.
Over the past 20 years, Bill Lyon has either developed for his patients, or has embraced all the latest advances in these specialized lenses. In the case of Arlene, a picture is with a thousand words, as she left our office today with crystal clear vision in both eyes...what a thrill for her, and for all of us at the Lyon Contact Lens Center!!!
Thank you Arlene for your trust and confidence in what we do for our patients every day. Here at the Lyon Contact Lens Center, we could never do the things we do without your love and support!
