Scleral Lens Fitting

Dr. Chad A. Carlsson, optometrist and owner of Carlsson Family Eye Center has always been one to try and stay ahead of the latest and greatest in technology and equipment with vision care and now more importantly, medically necessary specialty contact lens fittings.

scleral2Dr. Carlsson maintains a cutting edge practice devoted to the restoration of vision and comfort lost as a result of refractive eye surgery (including LASIK and Radial Keratotomy [RK]), keratoconus, corneal transplant surgery, pellucid marginal degeneration, extreme dry eye, corneal dystrophies, corneal trauma and other corneal related complications affecting one’s vision.

New designs and materials used to make scleral lenses have vastly improved over the years allowing optometrists, like Dr. Carlsson, find solutions for patients with vision problems as a result of some of the most complicated cases involving corneal disease and trauma. These lenses are now allowing patients who were otherwise frustrated and hopeless due to their irregular corneal conditions find answers and new hope to seeing again. Unfortunately for these patients, typical glasses and conventional contact lens wear don’t work to provide the quality vision these patients are desperately seeking to regain in order to get their lives back and see again!

scleral1Dr. Carlsson has always been passionate about his work in Optometry and helping every patient see at their best. Dr. Carlsson will always take the time to evaluate and determine the right type of specialty scleral lens fitting for each and every qualifying patient that wants to see better and resolve the visual handicap holding back their lives and visual potential.

It’s nice to find a family-owned optometrist in Gilbert. They give you more of a personal touch than a chain does.

A Good Family-Owned Optometrist in Gilbert

I have been very impressed with the Carlsson team. I got a good deal on a comprehensive eye exam, as well as two pairs of designer frames, and some disposable contact lenses. I’ve found my eye doctor in Gilbert.
