What are scleral lenses?
Scleral contact lenses are a type of contact lenses that are made to fit over-sized. They go over the entire sclera of the eye as opposed to just the cornea. They’re specially designed to create a vault over the corneal surface. It offers a fluid reservoir if you have severe dry eye, too.
If you’ve been told that you cannot wear contact lenses, it might be time to get a second opinion. We specialize in scleral lenses. We’re able to provide the vision test that you need and explore the different lenses that can have a positive impact on your vision and eye health.
How Scleral Lenses Can Help
Scleral lenses can help you in a variety of ways. If you’ve been told that contacts are not a possibility because of an irregularly shaped cornea or because you have keratoconus, you may be in luck. The way that a scleral contact lens fits on the white of the eye can help to overcome various eye conditions.
These lenses can work if you have:
- Cornea problems
- Thinning cornea
- Severe dry eye
Additionally, if you have had LASIK or some other corneal refractive surgery, you may not be able to wear normal contacts. It is because of the work already done to the cornea. Contacts won’t be able to sit on the cornea. However, with the unique design of scleral lenses, you can get the vision support you need despite irregularities in the cornea.
The contacts come in various shapes and sizes. It can ensure that you get the right fit without having to use a wide range of other eye care products. All it takes is an appointment with us to learn more about the contacts and determine if you’re a candidate.
