Scleral lenses are a revolutionary solution for people who have hard-to-fit eyes.
Whether you have keratoconus or other corneal irregularities, scleral lenses can provide the comfort and vision correction you need. If you're tired of struggling with traditional contact lenses, it's time to consider scleral lenses.
Call us at Eyesymmetry Vision Center in Owings Mills to schedule a scleral lens consultation.
Scleral lenses are custom-fitted to each eye, ensuring a perfect and comfortable fit for people with corneal problems. Unlike traditional contact lenses, which sit on the cornea, scleral lenses rest on the sclera – the white of the eye. This provides a larger and more stable surface area for the lens to rest on. The lens stays on the eye, enabling sharper, clearer vision.
The Comfort and Benefits of Scleral Lenses
Scleral lenses can correct a wide range of vision problems, including severe nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Using scleral lenses will allow you to participate in your favorite activities without feeling uncomfortable or straining your eyes.
Scleral lenses also help keep your eyes hydrated, which is essential for overall eye health. While inserting and removing scleral lenses may take some practice, many patients prefer these lenses to traditional contacts.
Even though scleral lenses are a bit more expensive than conventional contacts, they are a cost-effective option over the long term. With proper maintenance, scleral lenses can last longer than traditional lenses, providing improved comfort, greater durability, and clearer vision.
We’ll work with you to determine if scleral lenses are the right solution for you.
