Scleral Lenses

Scleral contact lenses have improved the lives of many people by allowing them to see clearer and more comfortably than with off-the-shelf contact lenses. Scleral lenses are custom fit for your eye, based on the shape of your eye. Scleral contact lenses provide profound comfort and vision for patients with keratoconus, post-LASIK complications, post-radial keratectomy surgery, high astigmatism, high prescriptions, corneal scarring, and “hard-to-fit” eyes. Scleral contact lenses are also great options for dry eyes, as they keep the eye lubricated throughout the day. Our doctor has years of experience prescribing custom scleral lenses. During the contact lens fitting experience, topographies are performed to ensure optimal alignment of the scleral contact lens to the contour of your eye. With this custom alignment, your vision will be sharp and precise. The scleral lens only touches the white part of your eye, which has limited nerve endings. This results in superior comfort. Scleral contact lenses truly change patient’s lives. Schedule an appointment for a scleral lens consultation.

Orthokeratology

 

Orthokeratology is a specialty lens that, when worn at night, will give a patient great vision throughout the day without having to wear glasses or contact lenses. Orthokeratology is designed to be worn at night, gently reshaping the front surface of your eye while you sleep, much like braces straighten your teeth. They are removed upon awakening and provide clear vision without the use of glasses or contact lenses during the waking hours. The orthokeratology lens will be worn nightly to continue its day-time effects like a retainer for your teeth after wearing braces. Since 2002, these lenses have been FDA approved for overnight wear after undergoing numerous clinical trials to confirm safety and oxygen breathability.

Benefits of orthokeratology (ortho-k):

  • Reduction of contact-lens induced dry eyes

  • Independence from contact lens/glasses for sports and recreation

  • Slowing the worsening of near-sightedness for children and teenagers. 

  • Can be used at any age.

  • Completely reversible and free of all the risks of refractive surgery!
