Available at our Stone Oak practice, the EyePrintPRO™ is a prosthetic scleral cover shell which improves vision by creating a new, smooth, refractive surface for the eye.
Unlike contact lenses, the EyePrintPRO™ 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™ 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. There is a long history of the comfort, health and visual benefits of scleral lenses. The difference, however, is in the design process. While scleral lenses are fit through a system of trial and error with prefabricated lenses, The EyePrintPRO™ is made from an impression of the ocular surface, just like a prosthetic eye. Instead of using a series of standardized curvatures as with scleral lenses, the EyePrintPRO™ is generated to exactly match the unique irregularities of the individual eye. Because of the precise nature of the back surface fit, high quality and individualized optics can be placed on the front surface of the device, creating exactly what you need.
