Visionary Optics

Visionary Optics

Sponsorship Level: Bronze

This market has been fueled by the recognition of the Optometric community that scleral lenses can produce excellent vision and comfortable fit for a wide variety of patients. The fact that these lenses vault over, but do not touch the cornea, which is rich in nerve endings, contributes to their comfort. This is especially true for irregular corneas as in Keratoconus or post-LASIK Ectasia. These lenses also hold a large fluid reservoir between the scleral lens and cornea, which allows treatment of Ocular Surface Disease (OSD) with or without a dry eye component and can act as a “liquid bandage”. More recently, there is recognition that scleral lenses may be a great option for presbyopia patients and others with “normal eyes”.
