This is a new lens fit for the left eye. Patient was presented with a VA of 20/250 wearing glasses. She came in for a scleral lens fitting with the aim to get better visual acuity. The patient is diagnosed keratoconus and has a highly irregular cornea. In addition the patient was presented with a cataract (grading +2) which is causing decreased vision as well. The right eye has a failing graft and can not be fitted at this time.
