FAQs on EyePrint Pro and Keratoconus

What is EyePrint Pro and how does it benefit those with Keratoconus?

EyePrint Pro is a highly specialized contact lens that is custom-molded to the exact shape of the wearer’s cornea and sclera. This customization provides an unparalleled fit, making it an excellent option for individuals with keratoconus. The precise fit can significantly improve comfort and vision by correcting irregularities in the corneal shape caused by keratoconus.

How is EyePrint Pro different from standard contact lenses?

Unlike standard contact lenses that come in a range of preset sizes and curvatures, EyePrint Pro lenses are designed from a precise impression of the individual’s eye. This method ensures that the lens mirrors the exact surface area of the eye, offering a unique fit that standard lenses cannot achieve, especially in cases of irregular corneas like those seen in keratoconus.

Who is a good candidate for EyePrint Pro lenses?

Individuals with keratoconus who have difficulty achieving adequate vision or comfort with traditional contact lenses may be excellent candidates for EyePrint Pro. This includes patients with highly irregular corneal surfaces or those who have not found success with other types of specialty lenses.

What is the process for getting fitted with EyePrint Pro lenses?

The fitting process for EyePrint Pro involves taking a detailed impression of the ocular surface, which is then used to create a 3D model of the eye. This model is utilized to manufacture a lens that matches the exact contours of the individual’s eye, ensuring a precise fit. The process is highly specialized and requires a practitioner trained in the EyePrint Pro system.

How do EyePrint Pro lenses improve vision for individuals with Keratoconus?

EyePrint Pro lenses improve vision by providing a smooth optical surface over the irregular cornea, allowing light to be focused more accurately on the retina. The custom fit also minimizes fluctuations in vision and discomfort, common issues with standard lenses in keratoconus patients, thereby offering potentially superior visual acuity and overall satisfaction.
