EYE PRINTPRO

Here at the CLEI Center for Keratoconus, we are excited to offer patients the EyePrintPROTM Prosthetic Scleral Device.  Dr. Gelles is the only provider of this device in the region and is among a group of less than 25 trained providers worldwide.  

Created by EyePrint Prosthetics, the EyePrintPRO™ Prosthetic Scleral Device is by far the most advanced device to correct vision distorted by keratoconus. The EyePrintPRO™ device is a prosthetic scleral cover shell which improves vision by creating a new, smooth, refractive surface for the eye. Unlike contact lenses, the EyePrintPRO™ device is not constrained to typical fabrication and therefore can match the exact contour of any eye, even in the most difficult conditions where other options have failed. In many ways, the EyePrintPRO™ Prosthetic Scleral Device is similar to a scleral lens. It is made of the same FDA approved oxygen permeable materials and the fit vaults the cornea while landing on the sclera. The difference, however, is in the design process. While scleral lenses (and all other lenses for keratoconus) are fit through a system of trial and error with prefabricated lenses, the EyePrintPRO™ device is made from an impression of the ocular surface.

This Prosthetic Scleral Device is generated to exactly match the unique irregularities of the patient's eye. Because of the precise nature of the back surface fit, advanced optics can be placed on the front surface of the device, creating exactly what you need for the best vision and comfort. It can be successfully fit when scleral lenses or PROSE devices have failed. Additionally this impression mould fitting system drastically reduces the time needed for fitting.

Here, you can see how the ocular impression is scanned as part of the making of the Prosthetic Scleral Device and the final Device.  

Below is a series of pictures displaying the process.  Impression material is first prepared in the tray.  The impression process is performed in the office by Dr. Gelles.  In the final picture, note the contour of the device is created to exactly match the ocular surface for the most precise possible fit.
