LASIK Contact Lenses f you are Depressed or Suicidal due to LASIK, there may be help! At the present time there is no cure for many of the LASIK complications. However, there are a number of specialized RGP lenses now available that will allow post-LASIK patients to function on a much higher level with a much greater level of comfort. While there are a number of soft lens and gas permeable lens designs included in the "specialized lens" category, Dr. Edward Boshnick now relies on two major lens designs to address the vision and comfort issues that most post-refractive surgical patients are facing. These lens designs are the new Synergeyes Post-Surgical Lens and Post-Surgical Scleral Lenses. "My experience is that, with a good fit, both types of lenses can substantially reduce the depression and suicidal thoughts that accompany failed LASIK".
