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.

A COMPLETE TURNAROUND
 
A 17 YEAR OLD STUDENT GETS HIS LIFE BACK WITH THE HELP OF THE CUSTOM STABLE VISION PROJECT
 
Ross J. Chatwin, OD
Sugar House Vision
Salt Lake City, Utah

March 15, 2017

Patient: TP, Male, 17 yrs old

History
TP was seen last year and diagnosed with Keratoconus. TP was given the option to be fit in scleral contact lenses or GP contact lenses. TP chose to be fit into GP Kone lenses due to the cost of scleral contact lenses. TP did not like GP contact lenses due to comfort and fluctuating vision. TP returned to our clinic for his annual exam reporting that he had lost one of his GP contact lenses and had not worn them for 3 months. TP was very interested in alternative contact lens options to treat his Keratoconus but financial responsibilities were a deterrent in getting fit in the best options.

Uncorrected VA (Distance & Near)
20/800 OD, 20/400 OS, 20/600 OU Dist. 20/200 OD, 20/100 OS, 20/100 OU

Device Parameters
OD BC 8.23 Pwr -1.25 Dia 15.8 CT .40
OS BC 8.23 Pwr -0.75-1.25 x 76 Dia 15.8 CT .40

Outcome
BCVA w/ Scleral Lens OD: 20/25- OS: 20/25- OU: 20/20-. No vessel blanching. Good clearance of limbus. No bubble present.

Additional Comments
TP has fallen behind in his schooling due to his poor vision over the last 2-3 years. TP has been very happy with vision and feels that he will be able to better understand his classes and excel in the remaining classes of his high school career. TP has felt that due to the lenses he will be able to better enjoy his friends and family. TP is now more mobile because he feels safe to drive.

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.
