Scleral Contact Lenses

scleral contact lens for dry eye symptoms

In moderate to severe cases of dry eye, scleral contact lenses can be used to keep the eye hydrated all day. These specialty contact lenses are different from conventional soft lenses because they are formulated to vault over the cornea and rest on the sclera, or the white part of the eye. This vault creates a fluid-filled bowl that holds fluid on the eye to relieve dry eye symptoms throughout the day.
