Eye Print Prosthetic Technology Comes to Columbia

New technology is now available at ColumbiaDoctors - Ophthalmology, Third Avenue, that allows custom contact lenses to be created from even more exact measurements than previous methods available. With EyePrintPRO ™ technology, custom lenses can now be created from a physical mold of the eye, resulting in a better fit and more comfortable contact lens.

Dr. Suzanne Sherman is proud to be among only a hand ful of doctors in New York City and State offering the EyePrintPRO ™. 

EyePrintPRO ™ is designed for patients who are visually impaired and currently without alternative solutions for corneal disease and irregularities. The EyePrintPRO ™ lens is a prosthetic scleral cover shell that improves vision by creating a new, smooth, refractive surface for the eye. This device can match the exact contours of the individual eye providing the best vision and comfort possible. EyePrintPro ™ is unique to each individual eye, similar to a fingerprint.

Traditional fitting methods work well for most of the population; however, in eyes with irregular ocular surfaces, these methods fall short. Landing a symmetric scleral lens across an asymmetric ocular surface doesn’t always work. 

Best candidates for EyePrintPro ™ are any patient who requires a scleral lens to mask corneal irregularities in order to achieve optimal visual potential or alleviate dry eye symptoms. Patients who have failed to achieve stable, comfortable vision, despite trying scleral lenses are perfect candidates.
