Scleral contact lenses are specially designed contacts that have special benefits and are perfect for patients with some eye conditions.
Read on to learn more about scleral contact lenses.
What Are Scleral Contact Lenses?
Scleral contact lenses are large contact lenses that are designed to rest on the sclera. This is the white part of your eye that surrounds the iris. Each scleral contact lens is custom-made, so it may vary in shape. This sets scleral contacts apart from other contact lens types, which may have standardized sizes and shapes.
Benefits of Scleral Contact Lenses
Scleral contacts have numerous benefits over standard contact lenses. Many people find them more comfortable. This may be because scleral contacts rest on the sclera instead of on the cornea. Scleral contacts even offer sharper vision than standard contact lenses for certain vision conditions.
Scleral contacts are also better for people with various eye conditions. For example, scleral contacts are often indicated for people with dry eye syndrome. Also, patients who have had a cornea transplant will often find scleral contacts to be more comfortable.
Custom Scleral Contacts
Scleral contacts must be custom-made for each patient. An eye doctor will need to carefully measure your eye and create contacts according to these measurements. An optometrist on our team will likely need to tweak the size and shape of the scleral contacts to help make sure that you get the best vision correction possible. At the end of the process, an eye doctor on our team will have created comfortable and effective lenses that fit you properly.
Remember to come visit regularly for eye exams. If your prescription changes, we can help update your prescription you can get back to clear vision.
