A scleral lens is a large lens that rests on the Sclera and creates a tear-filled vault over the cornea. Scleral lenses are designed to treat a variety of eye conditions, many of which do not respond to other forms of treatment.
Scleral lenses may be used to improve vision and reduce pain and light sensitivity for people suffering from growing number of disorders or injuries to the eye, such as ocular graft vs. host disease, microphthalmia, keratoconus, corneal ectasia, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, Sjögren’s syndrome, aniridia, neurotrophic keratitis (aneasthetic corneas), complications post-LASIK, complications post-corneal transplant and pellucid degeneration. Injuries to the eye such as surgical complications, distorted corneal implants, as well as chemical and burn injuries also may be treated by the use of scleral lenses.
