We design and fit scleral contact lenses by incorporating advanced technology such as OCT(Optical Coherence Tomography), Corneal Topography, and Bio-microscope. When combined with our expertise in fitting speciality contact lenses, these advanced technologies help us to achieve more accurate and comfortable contact lens fitting outcome. Scleral contact lenses can be the best option for many patients with keratoconus, post LASIK, RK, and other refractive surgery cases. Scleral contact lenses also can be the lens of choice for some other corneal disease such as Pellucid Marginal Degeneration, Irregular cornea, post corneal graft, Dry Eye and other ocular surface diseases. If you have failed in contact lenses for keratoconus and other corneal disorders in the past, make an appointment with us to see if scleral lenses can be the right solution for you.
The following conditions can be managed with scleral contact lenses.
- Astigmatism - Some patients with irregular astigmatism benefit more clear vision correction from scleral lenses.
- Sjogren's syndrome - Sjogren's syndrome is an autoimmune disease that causes extreme dryness in many parts of the body, including the eyes. Scleral contact lenses provide relief by creating a reservoir of fluid between the lens and the cornea that keep the cornea moist and reduce dryness and discomfort.
- Dry eye - Severe dry eye can be worsened by some regular corneal contacts, while scleral lenses provide a tear reservoir comfort and prevent corneal ulceration. They improve better vision, comfort and quality of life and productivity at work
- Graft vs. Host disease (GVHD)- Ocular manifestation of post graft complications can cause dry eye and other ocular surface disease , and corneal irregularities. Scleral lenses can be the best option to restore vision and comfort.
- Keratoconus - Keratoconus or conical cornea is a progressive degenerative corneal disease. Eyeglasses and regular contacts can't provide a clear vision in Keratoconus.
- Post-corneal surgery - Those who has LASIK, a corneal transplant, or other corneal surgery, scleral contacts lenses can provide optimal vision correction and reduce the risk of corneal irritation or infection.
