TN started our myopia control program on 5/26/16. We have seen him for for 3 exams prior and every year, his vision keeps getting worse. His mom decided that she wanted to do something to try and stop his eyes from getting worse. We decided that the iSEE lens was best for him.
The one day post iSEE vision was 20/80 and 20/200.
4 days later, he was seeing 20/40 in each eye.
11 days later he is seeing 20/20– and 20/30++.
At this time, I consulted with the lab and ordered a new pair of lenses. The topographies looked great and there was no keratitis. He was inserting and removing the lenses with great care all by himself.
TN is on a summer vacation this week enjoying great vision so far. When he returns, he will pick up the new set of lenses and we hope that his vision will be fine tuned to 20/20 in each eye.
KN started our myopia control program 2/27/16. It was not easy for KN to start, but he’s making progress every time we see him. KN was slightly anxious, which made taking pictures and maps challenging.
At the beginning, his father helped to insert and remove the lenses for him to fast track his progress. This sometimes is important so that we can get good measurable results so that we don’t get misleading maps or outcomes.
Because of his astigmatism, we decided to start with the iSEE Advanced Ortho-K lenses.
We reached 20/25– and 20/50– upon one week of wearing the lenses.
After 3 weeks, we got 20/20 and 20/25++. There was just a centration issue with the left eye that we had to fine tune, but no other issues with the system.
Our plan was to teach him to be self sufficient by the end of summer so that he does not have to rely on his father for help.
Today, June 28, 2016, KN is seeing 20/20 in each eye. We reviewed insertion and removal techniques for KN and felt comfortable in seeing him in the fall.
KN is now on a 3 month follow up schedule.
AI started our program in June 2014. Today, she came in for her 2 year annual progress report.
Her uncorrected vision right eye is 20/20 and 20/25 left eye.
She has no complaints about her program and is very consistent with the recommended guidelines. She is wearing Paragon CRT.
The lenses were deep cleaned and inspected yesterday before the annual visit.
There were no issues on her corneas and the topographies looked great.
I gave her parents the go ahead to continue with the program without any changes and I will follow up in 3 months.
Below is a sample of her topography 3 months ago and today. The difference may be due to the deep cleaning that was done yesterday. There was one line of improvement in today’s outcome vs April 2016 for the right eye.
