The concept of the EyePrintPRO™ was developed by Dr. Christine Sindt at the University of Iowa. She partnered with Keith Parker at Advanced Vision Technologies in Denver, Colorado to develop a high oxygen permeable material with superior quality optics.
Dr. Stephen Nichols and Dr. Dawn Bircher have brought this exciting technology to the Kansas City area and are now fitting the EyePrintPRO™ prosthetic device for patients with irregular corneas or corneal disease. Instead of using a series of standardized curvatures as with scleral lenses, the EyePrintPRO™ is generated from an impression of the ocular surface to match the exact contour and 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.
The EyePrintPRO™ is a great option for patients who are uncomfortable or have not been successful with traditional hybrid or scleral contact lenses. The quick process of getting an exact fit and achieving great comfort and vision in just a couple visits, is advantageous for patients who have spent months trying to find a device to improve their vision. Having improved comfort and vision will decrease patients’ frustration and their lost time from work, while increasing their quality of life.
