Scleral Contact Lenses

Dr. Telega is an optometrist who specializes in fitting this unique contact lens for both vision rehabilitation and corneal disease therapy. Scleral contact lenses are large diameter gas-permeable (hard) contact lenses that are fit to the sclera – or white part of the eye. The comfort and vision can be amazing and are incredible options for patients who have failed traditional style contact lenses for a variety of issues including keratoconus, post radial keratotomy (RK), post corneal transplants (PK), post laser vision correction, cornea ectasias, and dry eye and other ocular surface disorders that can affect vision and comfort of the eye.

Scleral Contact lenses are an incredible option for patients who have a history of corneal disease, including corneal transplants and keratoconus, and ocular surface disease, including dry eye and keratitis, who have failed other treatments.

Comfortable and Optimal Fit

The Eye Surface Profiler (ESP) creates 3D maps of the surface of your eyes. This helps your optometrist determine, from an unlimited selection of lens designs, which one fits you best.

Discover how comfortable your contact lenses can be when they perfectly match your eyes, thanks to the revolutionary eye measurement technology provided by the ESP!

Quick and Convenient

The measuring process is very quick, and within seconds your optometrist will have the accurate data from 500,000 measuring points. No more long waiting for your results!

By getting the first lens fit closer to the shape of your eye, using the Eye Surface Profiler means not only shorter appointments, but also less frequent appointments.
