Specialized Contact Lenses

The doctors of Midwest Eye Consultants also specialize in scleral lenses. Scleral lenses manage a variety of eye conditions. They are made of plastic that is clear and rigid, yet allows the eye to breathe, keeping it healthy.

A scleral lens is slightly larger than most soft contact lenses and is designed to rest on the white (less sensitive) part of the eye called the sclera. That is why it’s called a scleral lens! This unique design makes the lens very comfortable to wear, all day long.

Are You A Candidate For Scleral Lenses?

Scleral lenses are generally indicated for patients who have corneal irregularities, dry eyes, or those who cannot comfortably wear traditional contact lenses. Patients of any age can wear scleral lenses. Watch the video to learn more.
