Scleral Lenses

What are Scleral Lenses?

These contact lenses are made of highly breathable gas permeable material that vault over the cornea. The lenses are custom made to help patients with corneal irregularities. Scleral lenses are made to be comfortable and to drastically improve vision for patients that are unable to sustain sufficient vision through glasses or soft contact lenses.

Who is considered a good candidate?

Anyone can wear Scleral lenses, but these lenses are generally excellent in managing conditions such as:

  • Corneal irregularities – caused by Keratoconus or surgical procedure
  • Dry eyes
  • Severe giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC)
  • Severe refractive errors – astigmatism
  • Patients who are unable to wear soft contact lenses

What are the benefits?

​​​​​​​Scleral lenses are made to be more comfortable and stable because they are much larger compared to regular soft contact lenses. These lenses provide excellent clarity in vision. Patients that suffer from dry eyes can definitely benefit from these lenses. Scleral lenses create a liquid reservoir that the cornea sits in throughout the day. This provides comfort for patients with dry eyes.
