Restoring Vision From Corneal Problems
In the late 1980's, Dr. Kurtin was a clinical investigator for Bausch & Lomb's BiTech soft lens - one of the world's first soft bifocal contact lens. In the 1990's, Dr. Kurtin trademarked his MultiFokus progressive gas permeable contact lens. Patients using various Scleral Contact Lenses provide critical feedback to fine tune these designs. Optical lab marketing claims on which lens materials are all around best are verified here through clinical trials. Dr. Kurtin's network of referring Ophthalmologists give insight into what technology truly works best for Lasik, PRK, Cataract and Corneal Surgery.
