Scleral lenses have a unique design that allows doctors to correct the vision in cases where conventional contact lenses and glasses do not provide good vision. Patients with keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, severe dry eyes and others find in scleral lenses a healthy, non-invasive alternative that provides them with comfortable, clear vision.
These special lenses are larger than average gas permeable contact lenses and vault over the entire corneal surface, resting on the sclera (the white portion of the eye). This allows for patients with irregular corneal surfaces to see clearly and, since the space between the cornea and the lens is filled with a hydrating solution, it also addresses dry eye symptoms that are very common in those cases.
Our team works closely with Precision Technology Services to bring the advanced ICD FlexFit scleral lenses to our patients. Book an appointment to learn more about this specialized contact lens today.
