Scleral Lenses

Scleral lenses are a revolutionary type of large contact lens. They cover both the cornea and part of the white area of the eye, known as the sclera. Their unique design provides exceptional comfort and effectiveness in treating various eye conditions. 

These lenses protect and support the eye. They reduce irritations that can come with long-term wear. They are ideal for managing specific eye diseases or injuries. Their coverage and stability on the eye make them a game-changer for those struggling with discomfort from typical contact lenses. From the fitting process to the conditions treated, scleral lenses are transforming optometry care.

Benefits of Scleral Lenses


Superior Vision Quality

The primary benefit of scleral lenses is their ability to provide crystal-clear vision. They are particularly beneficial for individuals with irregularly shaped corneas. They vault over the cornea. Thus, they create a smooth optical surface, eliminating distortions and providing better clarity.

Customization for Individual Needs
Every eye is different. Scleral lenses cater to this diversity by offering a custom fit for each wearer. Customization is key to their effectiveness. They fit the contours of each person's eyes, ensuring a perfect fit and optimal vision correction.

Unmatched Comfort
Comfort is a significant advantage of scleral lenses. They rest on the less sensitive white part of the eye. Thus, they reduce the sensation of having something in your eye. This design minimizes discomfort, making them suitable for all-day wear.

Eye Protection
Beyond vision correction, scleral lenses offer protection. They shield the eyes from environmental irritants like dust and wind. This protective barrier helps reduce the risk of infections and other complications. It is beneficial for sensitive or compromised eyes.

Fitting Process for Scleral Lenses
The process of fitting these lenses is meticulous and patient-focused. It begins with a comprehensive eye examination. The optometrist evaluates the eye's shape, condition, and specific needs. This assessment ensures that the lenses fit each individual. They provide the best possible vision correction and comfort.

Follow-up appointments are crucial in the fitting process. They allow the optometrist to fine-tune the fit and prescription of the lenses. This attention to detail ensures that each wearer gets the most out of their scleral lenses. 

Easy Care for Scleral Lenses
Caring for scleral lenses is straightforward. The routine is similar to caring for soft contact lenses, making it easy for users to adapt. Lenses must be cleaned and disinfected regularly to maintain eye health and ensure the longevity of the lenses.


Patients receive comprehensive instructions on lens care. This guidance covers everything from hand washing to proper storage. The aim is to make lens maintenance simple and effective.

Scleral Lenses for Various Conditions
Scleral lenses are versatile. They provide relief and improved vision for several eye conditions:

  • Dry Eyes: Scleral lenses maintain a reservoir of moisture. This design alleviates dryness and discomfort, offering relief where traditional lenses might fail.

  • Corneal Conditions: Individuals with corneal scars or postsurgical irregularities find scleral lenses particularly beneficial. Their design helps smooth out irregularities. This improves vision where standard lenses might not be effective.

  • Intolerance to Other Lenses: Some people find soft or traditional rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses uncomfortable. Scleral lenses offer a comfortable alternative. They provide the benefits of RGPs without discomfort.
