Scleral Lenses

Scleral Lenses are large gas permeable lenses that cover the entire surface of the cornea and on the white part of the eye (sclera). Scleral lenses allow the cornea to be bathed in a tear reservoir all day, protecting the surface of the eye. They have been used successfully to treat severe dry eye disease including ocular surface disease due to neurotrophic keratopathy or autoimmune conditions such as Sjogren’s syndrome.

You may benefit from scleral lenses if you have the following conditions:

  •  Keratoconus
  •  Post-corneal transplant
  •  Pellucid marginal degeneration
  •  Severe dry eyes
  •  Sjogren’s syndrome
  •  Stevens Johnson syndrome
  •  Neurotrophic keratopathy
  •  Limbal stem cell deficiency
  •  Ocular cicatricial pemphigoid
  •  Other corneal conditions
  •  Myopia
  • Hyperopia
  •  Astigmatism
  •  Presbyopia
