What are Scleral Lenses?
They’re a type of contact lens larger in diameter than traditional soft lenses. They rest on the white part of your eye (the sclera) instead of the cornea. This makes them an excellent option for people with irregular corneas or conditions that make it difficult to wear other lenses.
Customized Lenses for You!
At our clinic, we use a Pentacam for customizing scleral lens fits. This is a state-of-the-art device that uses advanced imaging technology to create a 3D map of your eye. With this map, we can design scleral lenses customized to your eye shape and needs.
Advantages Of Wearing Scleral Lenses
One of the great things about scleral lenses is that they can be used to correct a wide range of vision issues. For example, if you have keratoconus (a condition where the cornea becomes thin and cone-shaped), scleral lenses can help correct your vision and prevent further damage to your cornea. They can also treat severe dry eye by creating a reservoir of tears between the lens and your eye, which keeps your eyes lubricated throughout the day.
We're proud to be a leader in scleral lens fits and to offer our patients access to the latest technology for customized lens fits!
If you're struggling with a vision issue or condition that makes it difficult to wear traditional lenses, call us at Broward Eye Care in Ft. Lauderdale and schedule a comprehensive eye exam to see if scleral lenses are right for you.
They have been a blessing! Over 10 years w kerotocanus and they have been the ONLY doctor to get it right. From giving me the proper contact lenses, working with my insurance, great staff, I’m glad to have found them. The best!
