Many patients to our Spring, TX location wear eyeglasses and would love the freedom of contact lenses, but have tried contacts in the past and came to the conclusion that their eyes were not suited for contact lenses. Patients with irregular corneas or dry eye have found soft contact lenses uncomfortable and impractical.
In recent years, scleral contact lenses have dramatically grown in popularity. While regular contact lenses cover only the cornea of the eye, scleral contact lenses are larger and cover the sclera, or white part of the eye. The larger size of scleral contacts makes them easier to handle, offers sharper vision, and less likely to fall out of the eye.
Scleral lenses have space between the lens and eye to hold tears and moisture so dry eye patients will find them much more comfortable. And because of the larger size, hard-to-fit patients can now wear contact lenses without the fear of them falling out during the day.
TSO North Spring specializes in custom made scleral contact lenses for each patient to ensure the sharpest vision and best fit. Scleral lenses are surprisingly affordable and may be the perfect solution for you. Please contact us with any questions or choose a convenient appointment.
