For keratonconic, post-LASIK or RK surgery, or patients with irregular corneas
What are scleral lenses?
Scleral lenses are large hard lenses that sit on the white part of the eye, the sclera. They are incredibly comfortable and vault of the normal cornea creating a new front surface to the eye.
Who are they most useful for?
The most common patients are those that are post RK/LASIK or have irregular corneas either from injury or eye diseases such as keratoconus but they can be used on anyone. Unfortunately, these patients may experience a warped world in glasses and their vision can fluctuate throughout the day. With scleral lenses they create a new front surface to the eye to eliminate that irregularity. For many patients it’s the first time they have seen clearly in decades.
In the scleral lenses that we use we can correct for both distance and up close vision in most cases, giving patients glasses free near vision. Ask us about them at your next visit. 🙂
