Scleral Lenses for Everyone!

Why use a scleral lens for a normal eye? Consider someone who is not satisfied with their current soft, corneal gas permeable or hybrid contact lenses. Perhaps the vision is not clear enough. Maybe the lenses are not as comfortable at the end of the day. According to the Tear Film and Ocular Surface Society (TFOS), the reason for contact lens dropout is multifactorial.1 Contact lens discomfort, which eventually leads to contact lens dropout, may be due to either contact lens or environmental factors or both. Numerous publications have established that contact lens dropout ranges from 15% to more than 20%. Contact lens dropout increases around age 40 and significantly increases around age 42. In patients under the age of 45, comfort issues are the main reason for contact lens dropout. After age 45, vision and comfort were almost equally stated as the reason for contact lens dropout.6 Of interest in the soft contact lens population, 93% of patients were not wearing multifocal contact lenses at the time of dropout.

Consider patients with refractive errors such as myopia, regular astigmatism, hyperopia and presbyopia. Transitioning a patient from other contact lens modalities to scleral lenses is easily attainable and improves the contact lens experience. If vision, comfort or both are not optimal with the current contact lens modality, offer the option of scleral lenses. Scleral lenses can significantly improve the lens wearing experience for normal eyes. As with scleral lenses for compromised corneas, it is important to to discuss realistic expectations including scleral lens risks, benefits, handling, solutions and the scleral lens fitting process.
