Scleral Lenses: A Comfortable Solution for Clear Vision

Are you looking for a contact lens option that provides unparalleled comfort and clarity? Look no further than scleral contact lenses!

Designed to address various eye conditions and provide optimal vision correction, these lenses are gaining popularity among patients seeking a transformative visual experience.

What are Scleral Lenses?

Scleral lenses are large, gas-permeable lenses that vault over the entire cornea and rest on the sclera (the white part of the eye).

Unlike traditional contact lenses that sit on the cornea, these lenses create a liquid-filled reservoir between the lens and the eye’s surface, offering outstanding comfort and stability.

Who Can Benefit from Scleral Contact Lenses?

Scleral lenses are an excellent option for individuals with various eye conditions, including:

  • Keratoconus: A progressive condition that causes the cornea to thin and bulge, resulting in distorted vision.
  • Irregular Corneas: Scleral lenses provide clear vision for those with irregularly shaped corneas due to corneal transplants or injuries.
  • Dry Eye Syndrome: The fluid reservoir created by the lens keeps the eye hydrated, making them ideal for dry eye sufferers.
  • Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis (GPC): These lenses are known for minimizing irritation caused by GPC.
  • Post-LASIK or Post-RK (Radial Keratotomy) Surgery: Scleral lenses can offer better vision correction for those with irregular corneas after refractive surgeries.

Why Choose Scleral Lenses?

Scleral Contact Lenses stand out due to their:

  • Large Diameter: The generous size of the lenses provides greater stability and comfort, making them less likely to dislodge.
  • Customized Fit: Each lens is tailored to the individual eye’s shape, ensuring a perfect fit and optimal vision correction.
  • Gas-Permeable Material: The high oxygen permeability allows for extended wear without compromising eye health.
  • Tear-Filled Reservoir: The space between the lens and the cornea is filled with sterile saline, providing a cushion of moisture that keeps the eyes comfortable.

Are Scleral Contact Lenses Comfortable to Wear?

Yes, absolutely! The liquid-filled reservoir created by the lens ensures that they do not come into direct contact with the sensitive cornea, resulting in exceptional comfort throughout the day. Many patients report improved comfort compared to traditional contact lenses.

Are Scleral Contact Lenses Easy to Maintain?

While scleral lenses require proper care, their maintenance is straightforward. Our optometrist will provide detailed instructions on cleaning and storing your lenses. With regular care, you can enjoy crisp and clear vision while maintaining excellent eye health.

How Often Should I Replace Scleral Lenses?

The replacement schedule for scleral lenses varies depending on the type and brand of lenses prescribed. Some lenses may be replaced daily, while others can be worn longer. Our optometrist will recommend the most suitable replacement schedule for your specific needs.
