What is a Scleral Contact Lens?
Scleral contacts are large-diameter gas permeable contact lenses specially designed to vault over the entire corneal surface and rest on the "white" of the eye (sclera). In doing so, scleral lenses functionally replace the irregular cornea with a perfectly smooth optical surface to correct vision problems caused by keratoconus and other corneal irregularities.

Also, the space between the cornea and the back surface of a scleral lens acts as a fluid reservoir to provide comfort for people with severe dry eyes who otherwise could not tolerate contact lens wear.

Can a Scleral Contact Lens help me?

Scleral Lens popularity has grown in recent years due to it’s ability to provide the highest level of consistent visual acuity for everyone. It is true that these lenses were designed for those patients who suffer from severe Dry Eye Disease or significant corneal irregularities, such as Keratoconus, Nodular Degeneration, Pellucid Degeneration, Post-Corneal Transplantation, and significant amounts of corneal astigmatism. However, at The Eye Center we have used Scleral Lenses to achieve significantly improved vision for all of our patients including those hard to fit soft contact lens wearers.
