For individuals requiring vision correction but find standard contacts uncomfortable or ineffective, there is an alternative: Scleral Contact Lenses. At Fort Worth Eye Center, we are pleased to offer these innovative lenses that provide enhanced comfort and clear vision, especially beneficial for those with specific eye conditions.
Scleral contact lenses are larger than regular contact lenses and have a unique design. Instead of sitting on the cornea like conventional lenses, they vault over the cornea and rest on the sclera (the white part of the eye), hence their name. This design creates a fluid-filled space over the cornea, providing comfort, promoting corneal health, and ensuring clear and stable vision.
Scleral contact lenses are particularly beneficial for individuals with irregular corneas, dry eyes, or refractive errors that cannot be effectively corrected with glasses or regular contact lenses. They can also be an excellent solution for those who’ve undergone a corneal transplant or have keratoconus.
At the Fort Worth Eye Center, we offer a comprehensive eye examination, including a detailed evaluation of the surface of your eyes, to determine if scleral contact lenses would be suitable for you. We provide expert fitting to ensure that your scleral lenses offer maximum comfort and optimal vision.
In addition, we offer personalized follow-up care to ensure that you have the best possible experience with your scleral contact lenses. This includes ongoing assessments of the health of your eyes, the fit of your lenses, and the quality of your vision.
In summary, scleral contact lenses provide an effective, comfortable alternative to regular contact lenses. At the Fort Worth Eye Center, we’re here to provide the highest level of care and expertise for all your vision needs.
