Scleral Contact Lenses – Treatment for Dry Disease
Dry eye disease can be an exhausting condition to live with, often causing discomfort, blurred vision, and an itching sensation. At I-Care Optical in Tampa, Florida, we offer innovative treatment options to help you find long-lasting relief and improve your overall eye health. One of the treatment options we offer for both dry eye and keratoconus is scleral contact lenses.
What are scleral contact lenses?
Scleral lenses are larger than regular contact lenses and rest on the white part of the eye (the sclera) rather than the cornea. They are made of rigid gas-permeable materials that allow more oxygen to reach your eyes compared to traditional contact lenses. The unique design of scleral lenses creates a fluid-filled dome over the cornea, which helps to keep it lubricated and provides a smooth surface for clear vision.
Scleral lenses for dry eye disease
Scleral lenses work in two different ways to relieve dry eye symptoms. First, they completely cover the affected eye surface, which helps reduce friction between the eyelids and the dry eye surface for better comfort. Second, the lenses create a fluid-filled dome that keeps the eye hydrated, reducing irritation, redness, burning, and other dry eye symptoms. Another benefit is that the dome helps protect the cornea from any additional damage that could be caused by dry eye syndrome.
