Scleral Lenses

SCLERAL LENSES: REVOLUTIONARY CONTACT LENS TECHNOLOGY

Have you tried to wear contact lenses only to end up wearing glasses as you suffered too much discomfort? Is your vision worsening due to Keratoconus or other corneal conditions? Thousands of people who suffer vision loss as a result of various corneal conditions  can now see clearly once again through scleral lenses.

Those who couldn’t wear contact lens due to eye conditions or discomfort are able to correct their vision safely & successfully. Say goodbye to the old days of contact lenses that didn’t work for you. You no longer have to suffer discomfort or simply being forced to live with poor vision.

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 going into the eyes. Normally, the cornea has a smooth shape to provide clear vision. When the shape of the cornea becomes irregular, the light entering the eyes is not focused properly. Consequently, an individual will suffer distorted and irregular vision.

Keratoconus is a condition of the cornea that affects between .1% to .5% of the population, or 300 thousand to 1.6 million Americans. Keratoconus causes severe vision loss and discomfort but can be effectively corrected with scleral contact lenses. 

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

Dear Patients and Community,

As a precautionary measure, and in accordance with recent CDC recommendations, TSO Dowlen Road will be closed for the next week.

We will be offering curbside pickup for eyeglasses or contact lens orders from 9am-3pm. Staff will be in the office to dispense orders, but orders will need to be brought outside.

We are also offering free shipping for contact lens orders directly to your home.

We plan to reevaluate the situation next week and will announce a return to normal business hours. Thank you for your support and understanding during this time.
