Scleral Lenses: Your Solution for Keratoconus
Keratoconus, derived from the Greek words 'kerato' (cornea) and 'conus' (cone-shaped), is a non-inflammatory eye disorder characterized by the progressive thinning of the cornea. This thinning leads to the development of a cone-like bulge in the cornea.
Scleral Lenses Provide Comfort Beyond Compare
Traditional contact lenses, due to their smaller size, can cause discomfort, especially with corneal irregularities. With their larger diameter, scleral lenses distribute their weight across a broader, less sensitive area. This prevents eyelid interference and discomfort, allowing wearers to enjoy extended comfort throughout the day.
Scleral Lenses Offer Improved Vision
While glasses often provide 20/200 vision, scleral lenses typically elevate vision to 20/30 or even 20/20. Moreover, the stable positioning of scleral lenses ensures consistently clear vision, making them an excellent choice for those seeking comfort and visual acuity.
