Have you been told you are not a contact lens candidate? New lens technology, such as scleral contact lenses maybe just right for you. Call us today to setup your consult.
The cornea, the "windshield" of the eye helps to focus light which enters our eye. If there are any changes in the cornea, including irregularities, diseases, or scars, light entering can be significantly distorted resulting in poor vision. Specialty contact lenses can help to improve your vision.
Hard to Fit Eyes
Scleral lenses have been around since the early 1800's Early lens designs were made of blown glass but where uncomfortable and offered limited visual improvements. Over the past century advancements in contact lenses and fitting methods have made the scleral contact lens a very good option for many patients suffering from poor vision and dry eyes. We work with the most advanced type of sclearl lenses available. Call us for more information and to see if you are a candidate.
How do they work?
Scleral lenses cover the entire cornea and ride above (vault) the cornea. Any irregularities in the cornea (pits, dips, bulges, dry eye spots) are bathed in tears, sometimes called the "liquid band-aid" which can help with healing of the eye. Other irregularities, such as keratoconus or high astigmatism, are filled in with natural tears and provide a smooth clear surface for maximum vision.
