Scleral Lenses in Austin

Scleral lenses are hard contact lenses used to enhance vision in individuals with various corneal disorders. Scleral lenses can improve vision when standard glasses and contact lenses have failed.

Who is a Candidate for Scleral Lenses?

Common Candidates for Scleral Lenses include patients with the following conditions:

  • Keratoconus
  • Irregular astigmatism from prior corneal surgery to correct nearsightedness, including LASIK or Radial Keratotomy (RK) surgery
  • Irregular astigmatism after Corneal transplant surgery
  • Past corneal scarring due to trauma or infection
  • Severe dry eye
  • Other complications of routine eye surgery

Scleral Lenses Fitting Details

Scleral lenses are highly personalized contact lenses fit on irregular corneas. Scleral lenses completely vault the corneal surface and land on the sclera. When fit properly, scleral lenses are very comfortable. The average size of a scleral lens ranges from 15mm to 20mm. Depending on the complexity of the fitting, the process can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. Here at Austin Eye, we currently fit Boston Sight, Art Optical Ampleye, and Acculens Maxim scleral lenses.
