Scleral Contact Lenses

Have you been told that you aren’t a good candidate for contact lenses because of the shape of your cornea or because your eyes are too dry? It can be disappointing to learn that you won’t be able to wear contacts for vision correction. But, you might consider talking with another optometrist for a second opinion. Scleral lenses are a great option that might work for your eyes.

Benefits of Scleral Lenses

Compared with other types of contact lenses, there are several advantages to using scleral lenses. It is always best to talk with an experienced optometrist to get recommendations for your individual situation. If your eye doctor tells you that scleral lenses are right for you, then these are some of the benefits that you can expect:

 • Improved durability • Reduced risk of complications • Easier to use • Better vision
