Dr Saquib, a Radiologist from Srinagar, was using Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) lenses to treat his Keratoconus in both eyes, diagnosed a year back. He experienced discomfort due to intolerance to RGP lenses, leading to limited wearing time and suffered from conditions like recurrent corneal abrasions and keratitis. He was also dissatisfied with the quality of vision since it did not fulfill the necessary visual requirements for his professional needs.
At LVPEI, Consultant Optometrist T Shyam Sunder suggested piggy back lenses (RGP lenses placed over Soft contact lenses) with scleral lenses to be tried as a last option. Dr Saquib was overwhelmed with the comfort and quality of vision with the piggy back lenses, something he had struggled for since a year. He was also highly impressed with the skilled staff and the hospitality at the contact lens department. He is very thankful to Dr Pravin Krishna, Mr T Shyam Sunder and the contact lens team.
