4 Benefits of Scleral Contact Lenses

  • Cost-effective

    Because they're custom fit, the cost of scleral lenses is usually higher than standard contact lenses. However, because sclerals last up to 2 years, they're more cost-effective in the long term.

  • Eye protection

    Sclerals are larger than other types of contacts, which allows for better protection from debris, dust and allergens that may irritate or injure your eye.

  • Extra-stable vision

    Their extra-large diameter keeps the scleral lenses centered and steady on your eye. If you play sports or have an active lifestyle, their size, shape and customized fit will prevent them from popping out of your eye.

  • Superior hydration

    Scleral lenses form a pocket that fills with artificial tears as they vault over your cornea. This lubricating cushion provides an extremely comfortable wearing experience for all-day hydration.

With scleral lenses, you'll experience vision comfort and excellent optics like never before!


Scleral Lenses FAQs

Do scleral lenses help with dry eyes?

Scleral lenses can provide immense relief to dry eye patients.

These custom-designed lenses vault over the cornea and rest on the scleral while avoiding the irritated cornea. The liquid reservoir between the lens and the cornea provides a continuous moist environment that protects the cornea and provides relief for those with dry, itchy and burning eyes.

Are scleral lenses more comfortable than standard contact lenses?

Scleral lenses are custom-fit to your exact corneal measurements. This, along with the lenses’ extra-large size, makes the lenses both extra-comfortable and extra-stable on the eye.

Does insurance cover scleral lenses?

This will largely depend on the type of insurance you have. Not all insurances are the same. Some plans will cover the exam and the lens fitting, but will not cover the lenses themselves. Others will agree to pay part or all of the cost, but usually, after other treatment options have been exhausted.
