The Solution for Hard-to-Fit Eyes: Scleral Lenses

Whether you have keratoconus or corneal irregularities, scleral lenses are designed to provide the comfort and vision correction you need.

Custom-Made Lenses - Just For You!

Anyone with keratoconus, an eye condition that causes the cornea to thin and bulge, knows how hard it is to wear traditional contact lenses. The same is true for people with irregularly shaped corneas.  

The good news is that scleral lenses allow individuals with hard-to-fit eyes to comfortably wear contacts. 

These custom-fitted contacts are specially crafted to form a dome over the cornea and rest on the sclera - the white of the eye. This provides a larger and more stable surface area for the lens to rest on. The result is a better and more comfortable fit, reducing the risk that the lens will become dislodged.  

One of the biggest advantages of scleral lenses is their ability to provide sharper, clearer vision. 

The design of these lenses allows them to correct a broader range of vision problems, including high levels of nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. With scleral lenses, you'll enjoy a better visual experience, and you'll be able to participate in your favorite activities without worrying about discomfort or eye strain.

Another reason why patients like scleral lenses: they help the eyes stay hydrated.  

Practice Makes Perfect!

While learning how to insert and remove scleral lenses may take some practice, many patients prefer these lenses to traditional contact lenses. 

Discover the Benefits of Scleral Lenses

While scleral lenses may be more expensive than traditional contact lenses, it's essential to consider their long-term benefits, including improved comfort, greater durability, and clearer vision. With proper maintenance, scleral lenses last longer than traditional lenses, making them a cost-effective solution in the long run.
