Have You Been Told You Can’t Wear Contact Lenses?
Are your regular lenses uncomfortable? Do they dislodge or pop out of your eyes? Is your vision not as clear as you’d like it to be? Well-fitted scleral lenses stay in place on your eyes and do not move around, even when you blink.
Conventional contact lenses may be unwearable or uncomfortable for the following reasons:
- Dry Eye Syndrome
- Keratoconus/ Keratoglobus
- Post- LASIK/RK/PRK Ectasia
- Corneal trauma and injury
- Corneal Dystrophies, such as Fuchs and Map-Dot-Fingertip Corneal Dystrophy
Custom-designed scleral lenses help patients with corneal irregularities or other conditions achieve dramatic improvements in visual acuity and comfort.

What Are Scleral Contact Lenses?
Scleral contact lenses have a larger diameter than other lenses and are gas permeable, which allows oxygen to pass through the lens to the eye.
The purpose of the larger diameter is to cover the cornea and smooth out irregularities creating a surface to stabilize vision problems, such as keratoconus or astigmatism.
Moreover, the reservoir of saline solution between the back surface of the lens and the front of the cornea ensures that the eye is always in a liquid environment — making it optimal for healing while providing unparalleled ocular comfort.
Have Dry Eyes and Struggle to Wear Contacts?
Sclerals tackle three factors simultaneously: they provide vision correction, they protect the eye, and they serve a therapeutic purpose by lubricating the eye. Scleral lenses decrease pain, discomfort, eye redness and itchiness while providing sharp, clear vision.
