custom stable vision project
The Custom Stable Vision Project is aimed at lowering the economic barrier many face when pursuing optimal vision. We’ve partnered with generous donors to allocate $10,000 per year toward providing deeply discounted Custom Stable lenses (up to 85% off) to those who otherwise would not be able to afford them.

VICTORY OVER KERATOCONUS
 
A 17 YEAR OLD PATIENT OVERCOMES PROGRESSIVE KERATOCONUS WITH THE HELP OF THE CUSTOM STABLE VISION PROJECT
 
Cade J Kowallis, OD
Roosevelt Vision Clinic
Roosevelt, Utah

June 15, 2017

Patient: SL, Male, 17 yrs old

History
SL has Unstable Keratoconus that has had a gradual progression over the last year. Due to his lower income SL is unable to afford contact lenses and wears glasses that only correct him to 20/50 in both eyes. He is continually progressing and before being fit in the Custom Stable Elite was not legal to drive without restriction.

Indications
Progressive Keratoconus OU

Uncorrected VA (Distance and Near)
20/200 OU Distance: 20/70 OU Near

Device Parameters
Custom Stable Elite 8.23 15.8 -1.50 OD
Custom Stable Elite 8.23 15.8 -1.75 OS

Outcome
Patient initial acuity with glasses best corrected was a very iffy 20/50 with patient reading very slow and squinting to obtain that acuity. With contacts he is a very solid 20/25 in both eyes and can almost see 20/20 with both eyes together.

How Did the Lens Improve Patient’s Life?
At the initial evaluation patient SL was very hesitant in his ability to see and function. After fitting and being able to wear the contacts he walked taller and was much more confident. He can now drive safely and function at a higher level.

AMIGOS EYE CARE
 
We are proud to promote Amigos Eyecare, a student led organization at Pacific University College of Optometry which provides medical eyecare to underprivileged areas around the world. Averaging seven trips worldwide per year, one of the slated trips will be to Tanzania, east-Africa in December 2016.

With the assistance of the The Oregon Sight and Hearing Foundation(a project of the Lions Club) and many other groups which help to collect ‘old glasses’, students and doctors are able to examine & dispense glasses to those who would otherwise not have access to medical eye care and vision services.
 
This is an area of the world with great need, many of the nomadic people (the Maasai) have never seen a doctor of any sort in their lives. The amount of pathology & blindness in Tanzania is staggering. Ultraviolet light exposure is the leading cause of cataract formation, it can also contribute to macular degeneration and pterygium formation. These three causes of blindness could be reduced significantly by wearing non-prescription sunglasses.
