What Are The Advantages Of Scleral Lenses? It’s All In The Shape!
Scleral Lenses Are More Wearable And Protect Your Eyes Better
The vaulted dome design of scleral lenses offers unique advantages over traditional contact lens design. Scleral lenses move around much less than regular contacts, making them superior for physical activity, with far less irritation.
The vaulted dome shape of a scleral lens provides a smooth replacement corneal surface, improving vision for people with corneal scarring or corneal irregularities due to LASIK eye surgery complications, Keratoconus, or other eye conditions.
The design of the lens creates a pocket of space between the eye and the lens. The lens is filled with lubricating saline solution before insertion, providing hydration and comfort all day long.
The size of the lens means that your eyes are more protected from debris, dust, and other allergens, making it a good solution for someone that also suffers from eye allergies.
Enjoy Better Vision
Scleral lenses also provide unparalleled visual acuity by shielding the damaged cornea with a perfect optical surface. Its larger design means the lens is firmly in place, which further enhances vision when compared to traditional lenses. Due to their size and shape, scleral lenses provide greater durability, easier handling and a lower risk for complications. The Practice Name Scleral Lens and Keratoconus Center has a wide range of custom scleral contact solutions that can work for you.
Scleral Lenses are the Ideal Solution for Many Eye Conditions
Because of their unique shape and comfort levels, scleral lenses are an ideal solution for people with the following eye conditions:
Rarer conditions include:
Scleral Lenses for Various Eye Conditions
The clear tissue on the eye’s outermost surface covering the pupil and the iris is called the cornea. The cornea’s function is to bend and focus light entering the eyes. Normally, the cornea has a smooth shape to provide clear vision, but when the shape of the cornea becomes irregular, as in the case of Keratoconus, the light entering the eyes doesn't focus properly, causing the individual to experience distorted and irregular vision.
Keratoconus is a condition of the cornea that affects between .1% and .5% of the population, or 300,000 to 1.6 million Americans. Fortunately, it can be effectively corrected with scleral contact lenses. The Practice Name Scleral Lens and Keratoconus Center provides advanced eye care for Keratoconus patients from all over the state of State including many patients from CITY 1,CITY 2,CITY 3, and CITY 4.
Our eye doctor has helped many patients, who were once legally blind due to their corneal scarring, regain excellent vision after being properly fitted for scleral lenses.
People suffering from severe dry eyes can find therapeutic benefits from transitioning to custom designed scleral lenses. Sclerals keep the cornea moisturized and protected while minimizing irritation to the eyelids and the rest of the eye.
Scleral lenses are extremely effective at correcting high and irregular astigmatism. Because of their rigidity, scleral lenses can correct astigmatism and provide excellent vision.
Scleral contacts are an ideal option for anyone that is severely nearsightedness, farsightedness, or has astigmatism. For presbyopia patients, scleral contacts can be designed as multifocal contacts to correct nearsightedness and farsightedness simultaneously.
All scleral lenses rest on the white part of the eye, the sclera. Our optometrist, Scleral Doctor Name, will customize the scleral lenses by determining the exact diameter and space between the cornea and sclera.
Some scleral lenses may be smaller, also called mini scleral lenses, while standard scleral lenses are larger, full sized lenses. The larger scleral lenses are often recommended on very irregular corneal surfaces.

Unlike regular contact lenses, scleral lenses are custom fit to the eye. This requires significantly more training on the part of the optometrist, expensive equipment, and multiple patient visits to achieve the optimal fit. In addition to the fitting process, the patient must also be trained on how to properly care, insert, and remove scleral lenses. Because of these reasons, professional fees associated with fitting scleral lenses and lens replacement costs are higher than other contact lenses. We are happy to discuss your specific costs and payment options based on your individual needs.
Does Vision Or Medical Insurance Cover The Cost Of Scleral Lenses?
Scleral lenses are not automatically covered by vision or medical insurance. Most insurances will reimburse the costs for scleral lenses when medically necessary, yet the rates and restrictions vary greatly from one vision insurance provider to the next.
When it comes to scleral lenses, every insurance company is different. Some cover the examination and custom fitting, but not the actual lenses. Others may cover a portion of the cost or 100% of the cost, but only if other treatment methods have been exhausted. It’s important that you check with your specific insurance provider to understand the particulars of your scleral lens coverage.
Note: Scleral lenses are hard lenses and last far longer than soft contact lenses. While their costs may be greater, their lifespan and benefits often become an affordable investment.
