What Are Scleral Lenses?
What Are Scleral Lenses?

Scleral lenses are specialized custom contact lenses that make contact lens use possible for many people for the first time - and they have many advantages over normal contact lenses as well including, fit, comfort, and visual acuity.

A scleral lens gets its name because it sits on the sclera, or the white part of the eye, rather than the iris (the colored part of the eye). Because a scleral lens sits on the sclera, it stays off the more sensitive areas of the eye. Friction and discomfort are virtually eliminated.

What Are The Advantages Of Scleral Lenses? It’s All In The Shape

What Are The Advantages Of Scleral Lenses? It’s All In The Shape

Scleral Lenses Are More Wearable And Protect Your Eyes Better

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.

The design of the lens creates a pocket of space between the eye and the lens. The lens is filled with lubricating saline solution before insertion, providing hydration and comfort all day long.
The size of the lens means that your eyes are more protected from debris, dust, and other allergens, making it a good solution for someone that also suffers from eye allergies.

Enjoy Better Vision

Scleral lenses also provide unparalleled visual acuity by shielding the damaged cornea with a perfect optical surface. Its larger design means the lens is firmly in place, which further enhances vision when compared to traditional lenses. Due to their size and shape, scleral lenses provide greater durability, easier handling and a lower risk for complications. The Scleral Lens Clinic At Gaddie Eye Centers has a wide range of custom scleral contact solutions that can work for you.

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 Scleral Lens Clinic At Gaddie Eye Centers provides advanced eye care for keratoconus patients from all over the state of Kentucky including many patients from Louisville,Springhurst,LaGrange, Carrolton and Oxmoor.

Our eye doctor has helped many patients, who were once legally blind due to their corneal scarring, regain excellent vision after being properly fit with scleral lenses.

People suffering from severe dry eye can find therapeutic benefits from transitioning to custom designed scleral lenses. Sclerals keep the cornea moisturized and protected while minimizing irritation to the eyelids and the rest of the eye.

Scleral lenses are extremely effective at correcting high astigmatism and irregular astigmatism. Because of their rigidity, scleral lenses can correct astigmatism to allow for excellent vision.

Scleral contacts are an ideal option for anyone that is severely nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. For presbyopia patients, scleral contacts can be designed as multifocal contacts to correct nearsightedness and farsightedness. Because scleral lenses are firmly positioned on the eye and do not move as soft contact lenses do, they provide unmatchable comfort compared to standard multifocal lenses.

All scleral lenses rest on the white part of the eye, the sclera. Our doctors will customize the scleral lenses by determining the exact diameter and space between the cornea and sclera. Some scleral lenses may have a space of a few millimeters, called mini scleral lenses, while standard scleral lenses are larger, full sized lenses. The larger scleral lenses are often recommended on very irregular corneal surfaces.

What Is The Cost Of Scleral Lenses? What Is The Process Of A Scleral Lens Fitting?
portrait older man

Unlike regular contact lenses, scleral lenses are custom fit to the eye, requiring significantly more training on the part of the optometrist, expensive equipment, and multiple visits to achieve the optimal fit. In addition to the fitting process, the patient must also be trained on how to properly care, insert, and remove scleral lenses. Because of these reasons, professional fees associated with fitting scleral lenses and lens replacement costs are higher than other contact lenses. We are happy to discuss your specific costs and payment options based on your individual needs.

Does Vision Or Medical Insurance Cover The Cost Of Scleral Lenses?

Scleral lenses are not automatically covered by vision or medical insurance. Most insurances will reimburse the costs for scleral lenses when medically necessary, yet the rates and restrictions vary greatly from one vision insurance provider to the next.

Depending on your plan, some of the costs associated with professional fitting or lenses may be covered. In general, medical insurances do not cover scleral lens fittings. Our insurance team will provide assistance in helping you apply any insurance benefits towards your scleral lenses. However, given that insurance policies vary widely we cannot guarantee how much coverage you will receive from your insurance.

Note: Scleral lenses are hard lenses and last far longer than soft contact lenses. While their costs may be greater, their lifespan and benefits often become an affordable investment.

  • Scleral Lens Fitting

We Asked Five Patients About Their Experience With Scleral Lenses

How Has Your Vision Been Since Switching To Scleral Lenses?

It has been very clear, a lot better than my soft contacts and a lot more comfortable all day. My favorite thing is that I can tell that my vision is corrected as perfectly as it can.

How Did Your Life Change When You Got Scleral Lenses?

It changed dramatically, I am a traveling nurse, driving early morning and late at night. I can now drive at night and the lights don't bother me, It has helped me tremendously for my job. I have been wearing sclerals for over 3 years and I could never go back to regular hard contacts.

Tell Us What Your Vision Was Like With Your Old Contacts?

 I had 20/50 vision with contact lenses, and now I can see 20/25 and I have gone down on my reading glasses from 2.0 to 1.5. And the great part is I can’t even tell I have anything in my eyes. The biggest thing about sclerals is keeping them clean and taking care of them.

patients talk about scleral lenses

What Is Your History Before Sclerals?

I was a keratoconus patient, I first had a corneal transplant on one eye and then the other. Did you try contacts after corneal transplant? I did but after 2 hours they hurt too much. Tell me the difference in your vision? There are no words to articulate, when I look at people I see detail like never before, it is like night and day.

Have Sclerals Changed Your Life? 

In middle school I was diagnosed with Astigmatism and wore contact lenses, but in college, I started having issues and was diagnosed as having the early stages Keratoconus. I went to a lot of eye doctors, tried a lot of contacts, and eventually I underwent corneal transplant. The surgery was not successful, and my vision remained as it was before surgery. Driving at night was no longer something that I could do because of blinding glare. Scleral Lenses literally changed my life, I didn’t know what I was missing.
