What is Keratoconus?

Keratoconus is a condition that causes the cornea to become thin and weak, resulting in a cone-like shape. This can cause vision problems such as distorted and blurry vision, and often requires specialized contact lenses for correction.

That's where scleral lenses come in.

How Can Scleral Lenses Help?

Scleral lenses are large, gas-permeable contact lenses that sit on the sclera, the white part of the eye, rather than on the cornea. This provides a more stable and comfortable fit for those with irregularly shaped corneas like keratoconus patients. The lenses also create a fluid-filled dome over the cornea, which helps to reduce glare, improve vision, and provide comfort.

One of the many benefits of scleral lenses is their ability to provide clear, crisp vision even in challenging lighting conditions. They are also designed to provide long-lasting comfort, allowing you to wear them for extended periods without experiencing discomfort or irritation.
