Scleral Contact Lenses
Scleral rigid gas permeable contact lenses are made for corneas with irregular shapes due to diseases such as keratoconus, past RK, PRK, AK or LASIK surgeries, or past corneal transplants. These large lenses allow more comfort than small, rigid gas permeable contact lenses, and much better vision than any soft contact lenses.
Fitting of scleral gas permeable contact lenses has allowed many patients to achieve 20/25 vision with the ability to wear contact lenses 10-12 hours per day. Dr. Plank has adjusted his practice to specialize in the fitting of scleral lenses and has patients from as far away Florida coming to visit him for this specialized service.
Dry eye Treatment
Dry eye disease is a chronic cause of decreased vision, discomfort, redness, and pain. Due to Oklahoma's environment (11th driest city in the U.S., 3rd worst allergy city in the U.S.), many Oklahomans are suffering from dry eye disease. The most common sufferers of dry eye disease include women over 40, digital device users, and allergy medication users. In addition, many prescription medications can create a decrease in tear film.
In the past, over the counter drops including Restasis RX and Xiidra RX drops have been used with limited results. If you are suffering, please let us know, and we will be able to create a treatment plan specific for your needs.
