Watch video how to insert and remove scleral contact lenses:
Advances in the contact lens industry made contact lenses possible even for former poor contact lens candidates,
such as people with irregular cornea, Keratoconus, Pellucid Marginal Degeneration (PMD), post-transplant, and post-LASIK Ectasia.
If you are struggling with poor vision because of corneal surface irregularity, today you have a perfect solution: scleral lenses.
Scleral lenses are large diameter RGP (rigid gas permeable) lenses, designed to vault corneal irregularity, creating perfect smooth optical surface. By landing on the sclera, these lenses offer outstanding comfort and a remarkable vision.
Scleral lenses are custom made for each patient. This process requires a greater expertise and more time than fitting standard soft or gas permeable lenses.
We use a computerized map of the corneal surface during the lens fitting process. Several trial lenses of different sizes and curvatures are applied to the eye. The entire scleral lens fitting process could require several visits to determine the optimal lens for each eye.
