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
