Scleral Lenses for Ocular Surface Disease

By Melissa Barnett, OD, FAAO, FSLS, FBCLA

Multiple studies have demonstrated that dry eye disease can negatively affect the quality of life[1]. Although dry eye is increasingly prevalent, many patients are not diagnosed or treated. There is a massive potential opportunity to address this highly prevalent condition.

Scleral lenses for ocular surface disease are especially beneficial due to the preservative-free saline used in the bowl of the lens to continuously bathe, protect and restore the ocular surface via the post-lens tear reservoir.

Key Insights in this Article:
• Where should scleral lenses fit into the dry eye treatment protocol?
• Benefits of surface treatments in scleral lenses
• Special lens considerations – scleral toricity and linear landing zones
