Scleral lenses are special contact lenses that are really NOT contact lenses! They are large lenses that actually rest on the white of the eye (the sclera), and they do not touch the cornea at all. They actually ‘vault’ the cornea, and since they do not touch the center of the eye, they are very comfortable. The space between the lens and the eye is filled with saline solution, so any distortions of the cornea are essentially eliminated. The result is vision and comfort that can be better than any other type of lens, whether glasses or contacts.
Please feel free to call us for an appointment to determine how scleral lenses can help you to see better than ever!
