I have been dealing with keratoconus for almost 20 years…

I have been dealing with keratoconus (a form of corneal degeneration) for almost 20 years. When I came to see Dr. Schwartz in January 2017 I was resigned to the reality of struggling with custom GP contact lenses that caused occasional painful corneal abrasions. She suggested that we try scleral lenses instead.

I have been pain-free, seeing, and feeling better than I have in 20 years! Dr. Schwartz and her practice have been literal game-changers in my life. Anyone dealing with GP lenses should seriously look into scleral lenses, and anyone in Westchester or NYC should go see Dr. Shwartz!
