Scleral Contact Lenses

Scleral contact lenses are used for the following:

  • Patients with Keratoconus.
  • Patients with irregularly shaped corneas due to trauma or disease.
  • Patients with distorted corneas from refractive surgery.
  • Patients with large amounts of astigmatism and are not satisfied with their vision and still want to wear contact lenses.

Scleral contact lenses are large-diameter gas permeable contact lenses specially designed to vault over the entire corneal surface and rest on the “white” of the eye (sclera). They tend to be more comfortable than standard rigid contacts and provide better vision than soft contact lenses.

Scleral contact lenses are custom made for each wearer, so fitting scleral contacts demand greater expertise and more time than fitting standard soft or GP contact lenses.

Our office has been successfully fitting Scleral contact lenses for many years. Dr. Schneider is a current member of the American Scleral Lens Society.
