Mini Scleral Lenses

Mini-scleral lenses improved visual functioning, visual acuity and socioemotional health in patients with keratoconus, according to a prospective, interventional study. Miniscleral contact lenses (MSCLs) are especially beneficial for patients with corneas incompatible with other lens designs. The lenses land on conjunctiva while vaulting over the cornea with a fluid reservoir, simultaneously providing corneal hydration and optical correction.

Mini scleral lenses vault over the cornea and rest on the anterior sclera. Mini scleral lenses are an alternative type of contact lenses which are slightly wider in diameter than normal rigid gas permeable. These lenses vault the sensitive front surface of the eye and thereby provide great comfort for their wearer. They provide excellent vision comparable to normal rigid gas permeable lenses. Three major categories of use for scleral lenses are restoration and support of the ocular surface, visual rehabilitation and correction of corneal irregularity and pain attenuation.

Eye conditions treated with mini scleral contact lenses:

  • Keratoconus (mild to moderate severity)
  • Pellucid Marginal Degeneration (PMD)
  • Terriens Marginal Degeneration (TMD)
  • Corneal Transplant (PK/PKP)
  • Radial Keratotomy (RK)
  • Post-Lasik Ectasia (PRK, PTK, Lasik)
  • Sjogren’s Syndrome
  • Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS)
  • Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS)
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Corneal scar (Post Trauma)
