Pinnacle Eye Group of Lambertville is the only eye care provider in the area to offer a Scleral lens fitting for irregular corneas. Scleral lenses are larger than traditional contacts. They are used to treat eye conditions that do not respond well to other treatments and to correct vision in patients who cannot wear conventional contact lenses or glasses in comfort. Scleral lens fitting has grown in popularity in recent years, even for patients with normally sized corneas.
The custom-made lens is specially crafted for each individual and fitted for irregular corneas. The design allows for a constant reservoir of fluid to be maintained between the cornea and the Scleral lens to ensure constant hydration. Also, the enclosed fluid compensates for any irregularities on the surface, contributing to better vision. The highly permeable material easily allows oxygen in and provides the comfort of wear. Most patients forget they are wearing Scleral because they experience no sensation.
Currently available Scleral lens designs are considered the top of the line in terms of comfort and eye health benefits. These corrective lenses eliminate distorted and blurred vision, protect the eyelids and cornea from foreign objects, and promote healing.
