Focus On Independence Gives Sight to Quadriplegic (Tetraplegic) Patients

Refractive Surgeons Robert K. Maloney and Daniel Durrie have teamed up to help launch a national program, called Focus on Independence, in which eye surgeons provide LASIK or vision correction surgery at no charge to quadriplegics. This program was recently highlighted in New Mobility, a publication for the physically disabled. Click here to see the new mobility article.

According to Dr. Maloney, ?For many people glasses are a real nuisance, but to quadriplegics glasses are an actual disability. With the Focus On Independence program, we aim to make day-to-day life a little bit easier for these patients.?

The Focus On Independence program is intended for patients over the age of 18, who have suffered a traumatic spinal cord injury and have lost the use of their hands and/or arms, making it difficult or impossible to put on or take off their glasses without assistance.

While glasses are an inconvenience for most people they can be particularly limiting for quadriplegic patients. If they go from a cold environment indoors their glasses can fog up and they are unable to clean them. If they hit a bump in their wheelchair and their glasses slip down their nose they are unable to push them up. If they need reading glasses they are unable to put them on and off for close work.

LASIK surgeons from around the country are donating their time and services to help quadriplegics see without the use of glasses or contacts. If you are a quadriplegic, and want more information, e-mail or call us with your name, type of injury and the date of your injury. We will then begin to evaluate your case to see if you are a good vision correction candidate.

If you?re a refractive surgeon and want to participate in the Focus on Independence Program, click on our Information for Surgeons section for more details on how to help. Our goal is to do our best to find an experienced LASIK surgeon within 100 miles to do LASIK or vision correction surgery free of charge for quadriplegic patients.
For more information, call the Maloney Vision Institute 877-EYESIGHT or e-mail us at focus@maloneyvision.com

This is really sick. What if the patient needs to instill eye drops every 15 minutes? And what if they need RGPs to restore their vision?
