Abstract Scleral contact lenses (ScCL) have gained renewed interest during the last decade. Originally, they were primarily used for severely compromised eyes. Corneal ectasia and exposure conditions were the primary indications. However, the indication range of ScCL in contact lens practices seems to be expanding, and it now increasingly includes less severe and even non-compromised eyes, too. All lenses that partly or entirely rest on the sclera are included under the name ScCL in this paper; ...

a b s t r a c t Purpose: To evaluate the success rate of highly gas permeable scleral contact lenses (SCL) for visual rehabilitation after penetrating keratoplasty (PK), over a period of up to 9 years. Methods: A total database of 31 consecutive patient fitted with SCL between January 2004 and December 2009 was retrospectively reviewed. Demographic data, etiology prior to lens fitting, visual outcomes, follow up time and complications were analyzed. Results: All eyes were fitted due to inadequat...

Keratoconus is a bilateral degenerative disease characterized by a non-inflammatory, progressive central corneal ectasia (typically asymmetric) and decreased vision. In its early stages it may be managed with spectacles and soft contact lenses but more commonly it is managed with rigid contact lenses. In advanced stages, when contact lenses can no longer be fit, have become intolerable, or corneal damage is severe, a penetrating keratoplasty is commonly performed. Alternative surgical techniques...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy of scleral contact lenses (ScCLs) as an alternative or as an adjunct to surgical correction for the management of complex ptosis. METHODS: A retrospective case-note review was used to determine the subjective function and cosmetic acceptability of the lenses. Digital photographs were taken, both with and without the lens in place; analytic software was used to assess the vertical height of the palpebral aperture (PA) and the upper margin-reflex distance. Three m...

Objectives: To determine whether parameters of anterior corneal contour as identified by topographic analysis (steep and flat simulated keratometry, reference sphere) predict the base curve of Jupiter scleral lenses in patients with dry eye syndrome and keratoconus. Methods: We identified 33 eyes with dry eye syndrome and 21 eyes with keratoconus that were fit with Jupiter scleral lenses of standard design between June 2006 and July 2009. Steep and flat simulated keratometry powers and shape fac...

Purpose: To report the clinical results of the use of the YK contact lens (Lucid Co., Seoul, Korea) for keratoconus. Methods: One hundred and twenty nine keratoconic eyes were fitted with a YK lens which has one base curve and three peripheral curves. A light feather touch fluorescein pattern was obtained based on topographic indices. Visual acuity, comfort, mean wearing time, and ocular tissue changes were evaluated. Mean follow up was 17.5 ± 13.8 months (range 6–75). Results: One hundred and t...

Purpose: To describe the use of Jupiter scleral lenses (Medlens Innovations, Front Royal, VA; and Essilor Contact Lenses, Inc., Dallas, TX) in the management of keratoconus. Methods: We performed a single-center retrospective chart review of our initial 32 patients with keratoconus evaluated for scleral lens wear. All patients were referred for scleral lens evaluation after exhausting other nonsurgical options for visual correction. Diagnostic lenses were used in the initial fitting process. If ...
