Better Vision & Increased Comfort Without Surgery

Scleral Lenses

Scleral lenses provide clear vision that won’t cost you your comfort. The lenses create a fluid chamber between the lens and the cornea which results in superior visual acuity. These lenses are not only comfortable and custom-fitted, they are also shown to have healing effects on the cornea.

Comfort Comparable to Soft Contact Lenses

Clear & Comfortable Vision

Scleral lenses are made of light, comfortable material that makes them just as comfortable as wearing soft contact lenses. These lenses sit on the sclera (white part) of the eye, vaulting over the cornea. This is a great option if you suffer from dry eyes and keratoconus. It allows for clear vision without an uncomfortable or damaging fit.

Protective & Healing Qualities

Because the scleral lenses vault over the cornea, it is protected by washing it continuously with preservative-free saline which can aid in healing the cornea. These lenses create what is essentially a liquid bandage. It promotes healing, hydration, and prevention of further desiccation.

Easy to Use

Scleral lenses are a large diameter contact lens which makes them easier to insert than their smaller counterparts. The ease of use weighed out with other benefits makes this option attractive if you suffer from dry eye or keratoconus. Scleral lenses are cared for in a similar fashion to soft contact lenses. If you are shifting from soft contact lenses to the better fit of a scleral lens, the transition should be easy.

Resolve Vision Distortion & Blurring

Improved Vision

Scleral lenses help to cover irregularities in the surface of the eye which leads to an improved vision. This will cut back on blurring and distortion you would experience when not wearing scleral lenses.

FAQ

Read some common questions about our Scleral Lenses.

How long do scleral lenses last? 

Scleral lenses generally last for three or more years. While your lenses may last that long, keep in mind that your prescription may change. Proper maintenance is also required for the longevity of your lenses. Plungers used for the application of the lenses will need to be replaced every three months.

How do I fit scleral lenses? 

Scleral lenses will be fitted to your eye by an ophthalmologist. Your ophthalmologist will use sagittal depth to determine the correct measurement and sizing of your lenses. The fitting of scleral lenses is more precise as the lense must vault over the cornea for a proper fit. Each eye is different so it isn’t possible to select just any set of lenses.

How long can you wear scleral lenses? 

You can keep your scleral lenses in for 12 to 14 hours a day depending on the type of scleral lense you are using. Some allow for only 4 to 6 hours of wear time. Consult with your ophthalmologist you’re unsure how long you should wear your lenses for.
