Patient K.A.



    Kristen Allen Golubchik, patient K.A. was the most dramatic change in improvement of Keratoconus and nearsightedness reduction. She used special aspheric rigid gas-permeable lenses fit to the healthy superior cornea, ignoring the disease (central and inferior cornea). In Contact Lens Spectrum Oct. 1999 the initial topography (corneal map) was shown, but not the topography of the same eye after treatment. Contact Lens Spectrum put her "before and after photos" (corneal topography) in a reprint in Letters To The Editor Feb. 2000. The picture shows dramatic proof that Keratoconus can improve with proper fitting of contact lenses, vision therapy, flexibility training, nutrition, and learning how to see the big picture. A picture speaks a thousand words, and truth is performance.



     Kristen Golubchik was so excited about her improvement and reversal of keratoconus she put together a website for all to see. Her goal is to help other Keratoconic patients who are in fear of corneal transplants as their only solution showing them another alternernative and safer solution for overall wellness and balance. Her website is healingkeratoconus.tripod.com or you can find her on front page of google by typing in healing keratoconus.



     K.A. is now married. Her name is now Kristin Golubchik. She is now refit with a new aspheric gas permeable design that is more aggressive than her previous fit because her cornea had flattened from positive changes in nutrition and overall body flexibility. This picture demonstrates the positive progress of the keratoconus. This may demonstrate that it may not be a degenerative disease. Does this keratoconus case progression demonstrate a condition or disease?

Results      This patient has positive results from doing Yoga and being on a Special diet. This caused positive changes on corneal curvature to flatten (not steeper)so we had to refit base curve and design with a more flatter aggressive aspheric rigid gas permeable contact. This is the last new RGP aspheric contact lens and best fit to date (02-06-04). This shows a positive reformation in a severe Keratoconus over a nine year period. Sight with this new RGP aspheric contact is 20/20-3 B.V.A (best visual acuity) with the contact lens. Unaided sight (no contacts or glasses) is 20/30 unaided B.V.A. Corneal central keratometry readings 50.00 X 55.00+ slight distortion, superior keratometry readings 40.25 X 41.00 clear, spectacle RX + 2.00-1.00 X52 20/30 B.V.A.      Kristen Golubchik was so excited about her improvement and reversal of keratoconus she put together a website for all to see.
