Finding Your Perfect Fit

Specialty Contact Lenses

Specialty Contact Lenses, Tampa, FL 

Are you dealing with keratoconus, high astigmatism, or other corneal irregularities that make it hard for you to wear regular contact lenses? If that’s the case, then you may be an ideal candidate for scleral contact lenses. At I-Care Optical in Tampa, Florida, we specialize in fitting patients with scleral lenses to provide them with clear and comfortable vision.  

What are scleral contact lenses? 

Scleral contact lenses are a special type of contact lens that sits on the white part of your eye, called the sclera, instead of the cornea. These lenses are larger than traditional contacts, ranging from 14-24 mm in diameter. Since they don’t directly touch the cornea, scleral contact lenses are a great option for people who have corneal irregularities and find regular lenses uncomfortable or impossible to wear.  

As a larger lens, it offers greater stability and is less likely to move around. It also provides a reservoir of tears between the lens and the cornea, which helps to relieve dry eye symptoms.

Ideal for corneal irregularities 

Scleral contact lenses are great for people with keratoconus, astigmatism, or other corneal irregularities that make it difficult to see or wear traditional contact lenses. Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease that causes your cornea to thin and bulge out over time, while astigmatism is a vision problem caused by an irregularly shaped cornea. If you have one of these conditions, scleral lenses can help to improve vision, reduce discomfort, and even prevent further damage to the cornea. Scleral contact lenses are also a good choice for people who have had corneal transplants.
