What Are Scleral Lenses?
Scleral lenses are rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses that vault over the cornea and rest on the white of your eyes, also known as the sclera. They are more durable than RGP lenses, but are just as comfortable to wear since they don’t come in contact with the cornea.
At Clarity Optometry, we want to make sure that you get the best contact lenses for your unique eye care needs. If you think that scleral lenses might be a good option for you, you can book an appointment with a member of our team for more information.
Who Are Scleral Lenses For?
Scleral lenses are a great option for people with irregular corneas, dry eye, and those who are new to contact lenses.
Scleral contact lenses rest on the sclera, meaning that they don’t actually touch the cornea itself. This makes them a great option for someone with irregular corneas or a condition like keratoconus since they create a smooth optical surface.
As the lens vaults over the cornea, it creates a fluid reservoir that provides extra moisture to the eye’s surface, making them a great option for those with dry eye.
These lenses are larger than traditional contact lenses. This means that they are easier to handle, and a great option for people who are new to contact lenses. The larger size means that there is a lower chance of complications, like lens damage.
