Beginning Your Journey with Scleral Lenses

Keratoconus may have led you on an unexpected journey, but remember that it doesn’t define your vision or your future. The prospect of starting treatment with Scleral lenses can be both exciting and intimidating. However, knowing what to expect can help make this journey smoother and more manageable.

Initiating your journey with Scleral lenses begins with an extensive consultation and eye examination to determine your specific needs and assess your suitability for this treatment. Using advanced technology like Visante Optical Coherence Tomography and Cirrus Optical Coherence Tomographer, the shape and health of your eye can be examined in detail.

When fitting a scleral lens over an eye with keratoconus, it is vital to make certain that the back surface of the scleral lens does not touch the front surface of the cornea. Optical Coherence Tomography allows us to measure within 7 microns, the separation of the scleral lens from the surface of the cornea. We use this technology on all of our patients’ subsequent visits to make certain the cornea-scleral lens relationship remains healthy. 

Once you’re deemed a suitable candidate for Scleral lenses, the next step involves custom fitting the lenses. This is a crucial step as the lenses need to fit perfectly over your cornea to provide optimal vision correction and comfort. Techniques like the EyePrint Pro process allow for a highly customized fit, creating lenses that match the precise contour of your eye.

Many of the patients that we see suffer loss of vision from many conditions and diseases including keratoconus, post-LASIK corneal ectasia, corneal transplant surgery, chronic dry eye and many corneal degenerations and dystrophies. Most of these patients need a well designed and fit scleral lens in order to regain quality vision and comfort. In my opinion, when these conditions become so challenging and complex, an EyePrint Pro scleral lens will overcome these challenges and allow these patients to regain quality vision and comfort once again. The impression seen in this video is sent to a special lab where 3D printing technology is used to make an EyePrint Pro scleral lens where every “hill and valley” along the ocular surface is replicated onto the back surface of this very hi tech lens. Amazing life changing technology.

After receiving your Scleral lenses, you’ll be guided on the proper techniques to insert, remove, and care for your lenses. It may take some time and practice to get accustomed to handling your lenses, but with time and patience, you’ll soon become a pro.

Adapting to Scleral lenses can be a life-changing experience. It’s like being given a new set of eyes, with the world appearing clearer and brighter than ever before. The journey might be challenging at times, but the destination – a life unhindered by Keratoconus – is absolutely worth it. So take the first step today. Embrace the power of Scleral lenses and embark on your journey towards visual freedom.

The Power of Scleral Lenses: Revolutionizing Keratoconus Treatment 

The dawn of Scleral lenses has brought about a paradigm shift in the world of Keratoconus treatment. It’s not just about the clear, sharp vision that these lenses offer – it’s about the transformative impact they have on the lives of those dealing with this condition.

Scleral lenses are unique. They’re larger and more rigid than typical contact lenses, which allows them to vault over the irregular cornea without touching it directly, creating a fluid-filled layer that compensates for the cornea’s shape. This design, along with the custom fit tailored to each individual’s eye, makes scleral lenses an exceptional solution for Keratoconus.

But, the true power of scleral lenses is far more personal. It’s in the smiles of those who can once again see the faces of their loved ones clearly. It’s in the joy of those who can return to their favorite hobbies and the relief of those who can perform their jobs without the hindrance of vision problems. It’s in the newfound confidence and freedom that comes from living a life not limited by Keratoconus.

FAQs About Scleral Lenses and Keratoconus

To help you make an informed decision about your eye care, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions about scleral lenses and Keratoconus.

  1. What is Keratoconus?

    Keratoconus is an eye condition where the cornea, the clear, dome-shaped front surface of your eye, thins and gradually bulges outward into a cone shape. This can cause blurred vision and sensitivity to light and glare.

  2. How does Keratoconus affect vision?

    Keratoconus can lead to significant distortion of vision, with multiple images, streaking, and sensitivity to light all often reported by the patient. It’s these irregularities that make standard contact lenses ineffective for Keratoconus.

  3. What are Scleral lenses?

    Scleral lenses are large-diameter gas permeable contact lenses specially designed to vault over the entire corneal surface and rest on the ‘white’ part of the eye (sclera). Their size and shape make them an ideal solution for those with Keratoconus.

  4. Why are Scleral lenses a good solution for Keratoconus?

    Scleral lenses offer several advantages over regular contact lenses. They are stable and don’t move around on the eye. Because they vault over the irregularly shaped cornea, they offer sharper vision than any other types of lenses.

  5. Are Scleral lenses comfortable to wear?

    Absolutely! After an initial adaptation period, many patients report that they can’t feel their scleral lenses in their eyes at all.

  6. What is the fitting process for Scleral lenses?

    The fitting process for Scleral lenses involves a series of appointments with your eye doctor. Detailed measurements of your eye will be taken to create a unique lens designed to fit your eye perfectly.

  7. How long do Scleral lenses last?

    With proper care and cleaning, Scleral lenses can last up to 2-3 years. However, regular check-ups with your eye doctor are essential to ensure the ongoing health of your eyes.

  8. Where can I get Scleral lenses?

    Trusted eye care professionals like Dr. Edward Boshnick specialize in fitting Scleral lenses. His clinic, Eye Freedom, offers comprehensive eye care services including scleral lens fittings.

Remember, scleral lenses are a game-changer for those living with Keratoconus. Don’t let Keratoconus control your life; discover the freedom scleral lenses can bring.
