What are Scleral Contact Lenses?

Scleral contact lenses are known for a few advantages they have over other types of lenses:

  1. Lenses Rest on the Sclera

    Improved comfort for all day wear

  2. Rigid Lens Material

    Offers improved optics for sharp and stable vision

  3. Filled with Fluid

    Corrects astigmatism, scarring, irregularities, dry eyes

  4. Vault the Cornea

    Protect the sensitive, nerve filled surface of the eye

  5. Customized Prescriptions

    Even multifocal to correct different types of vision impairment at once

Scleral contacts are large-diameter gas permeable contact lenses specifically designed to vault over the entire corneal surface and rest on the white of the eye. Scleral lenses can functionally replace the irregular cornea with a perfectly smooth optical surface to correct vision problems caused by most corneal irregularities. Scleral lenses are custom made for each wearer, so fitting scleral lenses demands greater expertise and care. The process of fitting scleral lenses can take several visits to the eye doctor to determine the optimal lens for each eye. Since scleral lenses are highly customized, they are expensive yet highly effective. These are the most effective contact lenses on the market and should be considered for your vision correction.
