Onefit Scleral Contact Lenses
In theory, typical contact lenses would fasten to the cornea of one’s eye but when the structure of the cornea is differently shaped it can create discomfort. Also, if one suffers from keratoconus or other eye diseases it can be another factor has to why the contact lenses can’t fasten properly to the cornea which can result in acute dry eyes. This is when Scleral Contact Lenses become a beneficial solution.
What are scleral contact lenses?
Scleral contact lenses are a type of contact lens that is larger when compared to your typical contact lenses because of the diameter. Due to the diameter being large, it makes it possible for the edges of the lens to touch the white area of the eye (sclera) avoiding coming into contact with the cornea but just sitting above it. The gap that is created between the sclera lens and cornea allows for liquid to be filled by the person wearing the contacts. These contacts have great benefits such as preventing side effects and protecting one’s eyes from dryness.
