What Are Scleral Lenses?
Scleral Contacts are gas permeable lenses fit to vault over the cornea. For irregular corneas, the scleral lens will provide a new shape in front of the cornea to restore clear focus to your vision. The resurfacing design will often provide vision clearer than what can be obtained from glasses or conventional contacts. The special vault design of scleral lenses also benefits dry eye patients by continuously bathing the eye in solution acting as a liquid bandage for corneal surface disease. The scleral lens must be worn on a regular basis in order to provide clear vision and ocular comfort.
