Dr. Moe Tarabey Has Shared Some Valuable Information Regarding KERATOCONUS


We highly recommend an annual eye exam for our patients because we know that routine screening is the best way to detect eye disease and prevent it from permanently damaging your eyes. Technology has advanced so rapidly in the field of optometry during the last few years that we can now examine the retina, which is at the back of your eye, without needing to dilate your pupils. Traditional eye exams usually involve examining the front of the eye to assess health and prescription changes, but a comprehensive screening of the retina is crucial for the early detection of a wide range of eye and health conditions. At Thompson Optics we offer you a comprehensive annual eye checkup that detects many eye diseases that never present any symptoms in their early stages – we save eyes, so come and visit us for a thorough eye exam and rest easy knowing that we’re watching out for your eyes!

Scleral Lens Introduction for Dry Eye and Irregular Corneas

Scleral lenses for dry-eye and irregular cornea treatment have been plagued with misconceptions- they’re bulky, uncomfortable and hard to care for. Clearly, the information out there is insufficient. Scleral lenses have gained attention recently for their success in treatment for these patients.

The beauty of this design is that the lens vaults the entire compromised corneal surface and therefore reduces symptoms of discomfort and photosensitivity. The fluid chamber between the cornea and posterior lens surface continuously bathes the cornea in unpreserved saline reducing front surface problems. Comfort is immediate. The two most effective diameters are 15.8 mm and 18.0 mm. Both diameters are comfortable from the first insertion. Small diameter RGP lenses for keratoconus are known to cause corneal scarring, photophobia, red eye and can be unstable, even to the point of falling out when shoulder checking. All of these problems are eliminated with scleral lenses.

I have been fitting patients with Keratoconus, Pellucid marginal degeneration, severe dry eyes secondary to Sjogrens syndrome, autoimmune diseases and chronic graft-versus host disease, post-LASIK dry eye, Stevens-Johnson syndrome and irregular astigmatism. Insertion, removal and care is remarkably easy. Our staff are expert instructors and no one leaves the office without their thorough instruction.

Thompson Optics policy is to keep you informed of the progress with each case and optometrist in Edmonton would be happy to help you with your patients with these problems. If we can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us on the phone or info@thompsonoptics.com
