Scleral lenses are a great advancement in refractive therapy. Scleral lenses are a gas permeable or hard contact lens. Scleral lenses are the size of a soft contact lens with similar comfort but offer the vision of a small RGP or gas permeable lens.

If you have any questions about theses lenses call to schedule an appointment today!
