Discover the Comfort of Scleral Lenses

Are you struggling with irregular corneas or severe dry eyes? Scleral lenses, available at Southern Eyecare Associates in Norfolk, may be the solution you've been looking for. These custom-fit lenses offer comfort and clarity, making them an excellent choice for several eye conditions.

Extra-Large Lenses for Extraordinary Comfort

Scleral contact lenses are not your typical eyewear. Unlike traditional contacts, scleral lenses are larger and vault over your entire cornea, leaving a protective gap between the lens and your eye's surface. They rest gently on the white part of your eye, known as the sclera, offering a unique design that sets them apart from standard contacts.

Understanding Scleral Lenses

Q: How do scleral lenses help with dry eye syndrome?

A: Scleral lenses are filled with saline before insertion to keep your eyes well-hydrated and comfortable. This helps prevent dry eye symptoms like pain, discomfort, redness, and itchiness while delivering sharp, clear vision.

Q: Does insurance cover scleral lenses?

A: Coverage varies by insurance plan, so checking with your provider is essential. Our knowledgeable team at Southern Eyecare Associates can help you navigate your insurance coverage and maximize your benefits.

Q: Why Do Scleral Lenses Sometimes Get Foggy?

A: Scleral lenses may occasionally become foggy due to various factors, such as temperature changes, humidity, or trapped debris under the lens. If you experience foggy lenses, contact our optometrists for guidance on preventing and resolving this issue.
