Scleral lenses are similar to gas permeable lenses although they are quite larger. These lenses, designed specifically for keratoconus, stretch to the white part of the eye – known as the scleral. With scleral lenses, the entire cornea is covered. Like gas permeable lenses, they are stable and dramatically improve the vision of a keratoconic and post surgical eyes
These scleral contact lenses will be great for those patients unable to wear soft contact lenses.
