Breaking the Mold
Dr. Karina Conlin and Dr. Amy Walker are the scleral contact lens experts at UW Health. Their knowledge and skill come from fitting scleral lenses on a daily basis and staying up-to-date through continuing education. They work closely with cornea service faculty who recommend scleral lenses for the treatment of various corneal conditions. For patients with severe corneal diseases, these specialized lenses offer potential sight-saving results – even in the most difficult cases where other options have failed.
Drs. Conlin and Walker are now certified in providing EyePrintPRO™ molded scleral devices – making UW Health Eye Clinics only one of two locations in the state to offer this service.
EyePrintPRO is an optically clear prosthetic scleral device that is designed to match the exact contours of the individual eye, providing the best fit and sharpest possible vision.
To create the device, certified optometrists take an impression of your cornea using an FDA approved impression compound. The impression is then sent to EyePrintPRO’s laboratory for manufacturing. Once you receive your unique scleral device, follow-up visits ensure your fit is healthy and your vision is at full potential.
