Semi Scleral Contact Lenses, Looking Towards Our Roots For Answers To New Challenges

By Steve Cogger

Advances in gas permeable materials and lens manufacturing techniques have allowed certain labs to manufacture corneo-scleral contact lenses. These lenses fit over the entire cornea and rest on the sclera, similar to a soft lens. Diameters can range from 13.0 to 15.0mm, a fenestration provides for easy removal on these larger diameter lenses.

Corneo-scleral and semi-scleral lenses provide great options for irregular corneas such as keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, post PK, and post trauma to name a few. They are also a fantastic option for those that could not previously tolerate contact lenses. In most cases, patients who were intolerant of other lens modalities report longer wear time, increased comfort and more consistent vision when properly fit with semi-scleral lenses.

Imagine the vision of a gas permeable lens with the comfort of a soft lens. That’s exactly what we have in mind when fitting semi-scleral lenses.

I have had a huge success fitting corneo-scleral lenses and am always excited to offer this fitting service to our patients.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
