My experience was life changing. I had lost about 50% of my eyesight due to an injury to my cornea. I have been going to Dr. Carlson for several years and after my injury he introduced me to a sclera lease for my injured eye. I had several appointments with Dr. Carlson for the proper fitting of this lens.. Dr. Carlson was so patient and caring Inserting the lease is a little challenging but he spend a great amount of time with me to make sure I was comfortable inserting and taking out the lease. With the lease I have 20/15 eye sight. Just amazing!!! I would highly recommend Dr. Carlson if you are looking to learn more about sclera lenses or if you are just looking for a great eye doctor. I can't say enough about his professionalism, his knowledge and caring attitude. His staff is great too.
Thank you Karen for the wonderful review of our office! I really enjoy fitting specialty contacts as they can truly be life changing for the patient. Scleral lenses in particular are great for keratoconus, RK and corneal scars. Thanks again Karen!

I have never seen an optometrist take the time to explain exactly what is going on with my eyes and what options I have for contacts vs. glasses. They are so professional and thorough, just love this office!
