If you need contact lenses but have been told that you can’t wear them because of an irregularly shaped cornea, there is good news. There are specialty contact lenses called sclera contact lenses that are designed specifically for patients who have irregular corneas and/or other problems that would interfere with contacts. If you have an irregular cornea, you should schedule a scleral fitting Riverside consult at EyeCare Associates of San Bernardino.
Sclera contact lenses are a great solution for some patients. Sclera contact lenses are gas permeable contact lenses that are large in diameter and are designed to fit over the entire corneal surface and to also rest on the sclera (the white of the eye). These specialty lenses functionally replace the irregular cornea with a perfectly smooth optical surface to correct vision problems that are caused by keratoconus and other corneal irregularities. If you’re looking for an eye doctor who can help you with sclera contact lenses, you’re in the right place. Our expert eye doctors at EyeCare Associates of San Bernardino can provide you with an evaluation and if qualified, a scleral fitting Riverside. You can rest assured that you’ll be well taken care of by our expert eye doctor, Dr. Mike Morton and the rest of our staff at EyeCare Associates of San Bernardino. In addition to sclera contact lenses, our comprehensive practice offers a full array of other exceptional eye care services including: comprehensive eye exams, contact lens exams and fittings, pediatric eye care, diabetic retinal health screenings, and the management and treatment of glaucoma.
