Are you tired of constant awareness of your gas permeable contact lenses? Scleral contact lenses fit more like a soft contact lens, yet are made of gas permeable materials.
The result is an extremely comfortable lens that provides the sharp clear vision that you need…
No problem, scleral lenses are applied with non-preserved saline and maintain a moisture chamber between the lens and your cornea. In fact, these lenses are used to relieve symptoms of extreme and chronic dry eye.
If you have a condition where your corneas have an irregular curvature, such as keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, or post lasik ectasia; scleral lenses may be perfect for you.
Corneal gas permeable lenses can correct your vision but are usually uncomfortable and challenging to tolerate for long hours. Scleral lenses actually vault the cornea and land on the white of the eye making them extremely comfortable while correcting vision for some of the most challenging contact lens fits.
Hard to fit with contacts?
Have you been told your eyes are “hard to fit” or even worse “impossible to fit” with contacts? This exciting method of correcting vision may be perfect for you. It matters very little what shape your cornea is in or if you have been succesful with contacts in the past. Scleral lenses vault over your cornea and fit the soft white of the eye making some of the most challenging fits possible.
Soft toric lenses driving you crazy?
Are you tired of the on again/off again vision with your soft toric lenses? There is a reason a soft toric lens does that. The soft material is partially plastic and part liquid. Once the lens goes on your eye the liquid is slowly replaced by your own tears. As you can feel, sometimes the lens tends to get dry and when it begins to dehydrate it does not perform it’s job of vision correction very well. Furthermore, a toric lens must align perfectly in order to correct your astigmatism. Once it rotates off axis, your vision blurs. A couple of focused blinks can usually bring the lens back into place. A scleral lens is not dependent on moisture or alignment to correct corneal astigmatism so you get clear crisp comfortable vision all day.
