What is EyePrintPRO™?
EyePrintPRO™ is Hope!
The EyePrintPRO™ is a prosthetic scleral cover shell which improves vision by creating a new, smooth, refractive surface for the eye.
Unlike contact lenses, the EyePrintPRO™ is not constrained to typical fabrication and therefore can match the exact contour of any eye- even in the most difficult conditions where other options have failed.

How is EyePrintPRO™ different from scleral lenses?
In many ways, the EyePrintPRO™ is similar to a scleral lens. It is made of the same FDA approved oxygen permeable materials and the fit vaults the cornea while landing on the sclera. There is a long history of the comfort, health and visual benefits of scleral lenses. The difference, however, is in the design process. While scleral lenses are fit through a system of trial and error with prefabricated lenses, The EyePrintPRO™ is made from an impression of the ocular surface, just like a prosthetic eye. Instead of using a series of standardized curvatures as with scleral lenses, the EyePrintPRO™ is generated to exactly match the unique irregularities of the individual eye. Because of the precise nature of the back surface fit, high quality and individualized optics can be placed on the front surface of the device, creating exactly what you need.
Who Benefits from an EyePrintPRO™?
The EyePrintPRO is indicated for, but not limited to, the following:
- Pellucid Marginal Degeneration
- Post LASIK ectasia
- Post Radial Keratometry
- Corneal Transplants
- High Myopia / Hyperopia
- Neurotrophic Keratitis
- Ocular Surface Disease (Dry Eye)
- Graft vs Host disease
- Stevens Johnson Syndrome
- Ocular Cicatricial Pemphigoid
- Chemical Burns
- Limbal Stem Cell Deficiency
- Scleral Patch Grafts
- High Wind/Dust Environments
- Post-trabeculectomy (bleb) or tube-shunt glaucoma surgery
The cost of the EyePrintPRO™ will vary by the complexity of your eye and your unique optical needs. We encourage you to talk to your doctor about the EyePrint Process, cost, and if the EyePrintPRO™ is right for you.
We have found that the EyePrint Impression gives details about the eye that we have never been able to see or recognize before. One of these factors is previous lenses can distort the eye and significantly affect the outcome of the final product. It is our experience people need to be out of contact lenses a minimum of 48 hours, but preferred 72 hours before EyePrinting to make sure the eye relaxes and returns to its natural shape. However, this amount of time varies by lens modality. The EyePrintPRO™ is so precise, the details matter. There are no fudge factors or guessing…You get exactly what you need.
The longevity of your EyePrintPRO™ depends on several factors: How well you take care of it, the disease state of your eye, and your Practitioner’s exam findings and recommendations.
