Scleral contact lenses are rigid gas permeable lenses with an extra-wide diameter. In contrast to standard contacts that fit snug to your eye, scleral lenses vault over the entire cornea, leaving a gap between the lens and the corneal surface before coming to rest on the whites of your eye (your sclera). This unique design has taken scleral lenses to the top of the charts for ultimate wearing comfort, sharp vision, and healthy eyes.
