What is Crooked Eye?

Learn about Crooked Eye Solutions

Los Angeles Crooked Eye specialist John Stolpe has a passion for helping patients. Many people believe that having a crooked eye is a problem they will have forever. This is not always the case. An ocular prosthesis can help people with crooked eye. In this article, you will learn about crooked eye and scleral contact lens solutions.

Crooked Eye and Prosthetic Eyes

Crooked Eye Misperceptions

A common misperception about ocular prosthetics is that they are round. Also, that they sit in empty ocular sockets. It is important to understand that not all prosthetic eyes are round spheres that sit in empty sockets. Many prosthetic eyes are actually more like shells (known as scleral shells or scleral contact lenses). In most cases, sit on top of eyes that either don’t look great or that are healthy but have no vision. A scleral contact lens can be created for you. Even more, this scleral contact lens looks exactly like your other eye. Above all, allows you to see through it, which helps correct the problem of the crooked eye.

The first step in creating a scleral contact lens for crooked eye is to come into the office for a preliminary consultation. The ocularist will evaluate each person’s unique situation and make a recommendation as to how to proceed. The next step is to have an impression taken of the eye. This impression is much like a dental impression taken at an orthodontist’s office, but taken in the ocular cavity rather than the mouth. Many people find the impression to be the most uncomfortable part of the process, but our ocularist will walk you through how to prepare properly so that you are as comfortable as possible.

Crooked Eye Los Angeles Specialist John Stolpe patientAt the office of John Stolpe, the iris we create is one of the highest quality irises available anywhere on the market. We are pioneering the manufacture of digital irises in the ocularist field by using an extremely high quality digital camera to replicate with great fidelity a patient’s existing eye. The patient’s veining pattern is reproduced with red silk threads. Read more about our pioneering work in manufacturing digital irises here.

Once your new piece is ready, your ocularist will work with you on how to care for it. Patients usually sleep in their pieces and only take them out a few times a year, at routine ocularist visits for professional cleaning. However, depending on your particular situation, your ocularist may create a different care regimen for you.

Staff members at the office of John Stolpe have suffered eye trauma themselves and know how difficult and embarrassing it can be to deal with a crooked eye. This empathy helps create an extremely safe and comfortable atmosphere for our patients and we pride ourselves in the highest standards of integrity, care and approachable “bedside manner.”
