Are Scleral Lenses Good for Dry Eyes?
Scleral contact lenses are an effective method for treating dry eyes. The lenses cover your entire corneal surface, protecting your eyes from irritants like smoke, wind, dust, and other debris. They don’t touch the corneal surface at all, thereby minimizing irritation.
Also, the sterile saline-filled reservoir built into the scleral lens keeps the eyes hydrated the entire time they are worn, so the cornea stays moist and makes your eye more comfortable. So, if you struggle with dry eye syndrome and have been looking for a more effective treatment method than just eye drops and artificial tears, you should contact Dr. Lenning about scleral lenses.
