Scleral Lenses

If you experience discomfort with regular contact lenses or were told that you’re not able to wear them due to an irregularly shaped cornea or other eye issues, you might want to consider scleral lenses.

Scleral lenses are large, rigid, gas-permeable lenses that cover the entire cornea and rest on the sclera, providing a clear and comfortable optical surface. They offer sharper vision than glasses and other forms of vision correction and are custom-made to fit your eye’s unique contours.

The size of the lens depends on the complexity of your eye condition, but they’re generally larger than regular soft contact lenses. While scleral lenses are more expensive, they’re often more cost-effective in the long term, lasting up to 3 years. They’re also the most comfortable and effective option for severe dry eye, keratoconus, and similar conditions. We offer a variety of scleral contact lens solutions tailored to your needs.

Can you benefit from scleral lenses?

Suitable candidates for scleral lenses may include individuals with:

  • Allergies
  • High or complex prescriptions who have been told they cannot wear regular contact lenses
  • Previous unsuccessful experiences with other lenses due to discomfort or poor vision
  • Conditions such as keratoconus, corneal degeneration or dystrophy, corneal transplants, scarring or trauma, or post-LASIK complications
  • Dry eye or high sensitivity to light, or those with conditions like Stevens-Johnson Syndrome

Benefits of scleral lenses

  • Easy insertion and removal
  • Consistently high-quality vision throughout the day
  • Enhanced comfort compared to other lenses that may dry out
  • Longevity with proper care, as they can last over a year
