Scleral Contact Lenses

The life changing contact lens for patients who have corneal distortion

What’s a Scleral Contact lens?

A scleral lens is a permeable lens that rests on on the sclera (the white part of the eye) and creates a tear-filled vault over the cornea. Scleral lenses are designed to minimize the effects of a variety of corneal conditions which do not respond to conventional contact lenses or eye glasses.

Such conditions include:

Post-refractive surgery

  • LASIK
  • PRK, RK

Post-graft

  • Corneal Transplant

Corneal disorders/surface diseases/dystrophies

  • Keratoconus
  • Pellucid Marginal Degeneration
  • Dry Eye Syndrome
  • Corneal Ectasia

How will it feel on my eye?

Every lens is manufactured to the eye specifications of the individual. Conventional gas permeable lenses rest directly on the cornea. Since the cornea is sensitive this can cause constant lens awareness. The scleral lens vaults and mimics the shape of your cornea. It does not rest or move across the cornea making it exceptionally comfortable in comparison to conventional lenses.
