About Scleral Contact Lenses
Scleral lenses are a specialty type of contact designed to be larger than traditional contact lenses, allowing them to rest on your sclera (whites of your eyes) instead of your cornea. Because of this size, the centre of the lens “vaults” over your cornea, providing clear vision and comfort for people who might struggle with issues like keratoconus or dry eye.
How Scleral Lenses Can Help
After performing a comprehensive contact lens exam and fitting, we can determine if scleral lenses are right for you.
During this appointment, we’ll measure your eye’s shape and size, determine your lens prescription, and look for potential concerns that scleral lenses could help address.
Keratoconus is an eye condition that develops with the cornea thins over time, causing it to bulge forward. This issue can affect your vision quality and make it difficult to wear traditional contact lenses.
Scleral lenses can help by “vaulting” over your cornea, providing comfort and clarity.
Dry Eye Symptoms
Dry eye can seriously affect the comfort of your contact lenses, but scleral lenses are a great way to manage this discomfort and achieve clear vision.
By “vaulting” over the cornea, these lenses leave a space between your cornea and lens to allow tears to accumulate, soothing your dry eye symptoms
In some cases, traditional GP and soft contact lenses might not provide the comfort or clarity you want. There are several reasons why this could happen, but scleral lenses can help address these concerns.
