What is a Scleral Lens?
A scleral lens is a specialized contact lens used to manage a variety of eye conditions. It is 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.
