What Is Keratoconus?
Keratoconus is an eye condition that causes the cornea—the eye’s clear front surface—to thin and bulge outward into a cone-like shape.
This can cause distorted vision, making it difficult to focus on objects both near and far away. It typically affects adults but can also develop during teen years.
Though doctors have been looking into keratoconus for a number of years, it still isn’t entirely known what causes it. However, the risk of developing keratoconus can increase if:
- You have a family history of the condition
- You rub your eyes excessively
- You have a history of asthma, allergies, and other medical conditions
Scleral Contact Lenses: Helping You See Comfortably

We can also check to see if your keratoconus strategy will be covered by medical insurance before we start the process.

What Are Scleral Lenses?
Scleral lenses are large-diameter contact lenses that rest on the sclera, which is the white part of the eye.
They are designed to vault over the cornea’s front surface and are custom-made for each user. Scleral lenses help to protect from having direct contact with the lens, allowing wearers to experience improved vision and comfort.
How Do Scleral Lenses Help?
Scleral lenses can be used to help address keratoconus symptoms by vaulting over the irregularly shaped cornea.
Scleral lenses can also support your eye comfort by providing a tear-filled reservoir between the lens and cornea that helps soothe the cornea and keep your eyes hydrated. We may also recommend scleral lenses to help address d.
