4 Benefits of Scleral Contact Lenses

  • Cost-effective

    Because they're custom fit, the cost of scleral lenses is usually higher than standard contact lenses. However, because sclerals last up to 2 years, they're more cost-effective in the long term.

  • Eye protection

    Sclerals are larger than other types of contacts, which allows for better protection from debris, dust and allergens that may irritate or injure your eye.

  • Extra-stable vision

    Their extra-large diameter keeps the scleral lenses centered and steady on your eye. If you play sports or have an active lifestyle, their size, shape and customized fit will prevent them from popping out of your eye.

  • Superior hydration

    Scleral lenses form a pocket that fills with artificial tears as they vault over your cornea. This lubricating cushion provides an extremely comfortable wearing experience for all-day hydration.

With scleral lenses, you'll experience vision comfort and excellent optics like never before!

This is the doctor to go to if you need someone experienced. Gerowitz helped me with my dry eyes aft... er visiting him I no longer feel uncomfortability and irritation in my eye. He was very supportive and professional. Gerowitz saw the issue in my eye that other eye doctors could not spot. Incredibly greatfull for his service!

We got recommended to Dr. Robert Gerowitz due to some special format on my son's cornea. My son is a... n active athetic boy (snowboarding, ice hockey, biking, etc). My son has been using CRT lenses since he is 8 years old, but with the change in the cornea the CRT was not working. Dr. Gerowitz took his case with all attention and care. He was calm in dealing with a challenge situation. it took around 2-3 months of exams until Dr Gerowitz ordered the molds for my son. In a matter of weeks using the new molds my son got 20/20 vision. I am so pleased with Dr. Gerowitz. I strongly recommend him and his staff. Everyone is great! They understand urgency when there is one and work the best way to accommodate our needs. Thank Dr. Gerowitz for everything.

My daughter is currently wearing ortho-k. Her eyes of progressively has gone better. During this fir... st week, she already has 20/20 vision which is very surprising. Before the procedure, she thought putting these lenses in your eyes would hurt and be really uncomfortable, but with the right technique it is super easy! Thank you Dr. Robert Gerowitz and the teams for what you do!

Scleral Lenses FAQs

Do scleral lenses help with dry eyes?

Scleral lenses can provide immense relief to dry eye patients.

These custom-designed lenses vault over the cornea and rest on the scleral while avoiding the irritated cornea. The liquid reservoir between the lens and the cornea provides a continuous moist environment that protects the cornea and provides relief for those with dry, itchy and burning eyes.

Are scleral lenses more comfortable than standard contact lenses?

Scleral lenses are custom-fit to your exact corneal measurements. This, along with the lenses’ extra-large size, makes the lenses both extra-comfortable and extra-stable on the eye.

Does insurance cover scleral lenses?

This will largely depend on the type of insurance you have. Not all insurances are the same. Some plans will cover the exam and the lens fitting, but will not cover the lenses themselves. Others will agree to pay part or all of the cost, but usually, after other treatment options have been exhausted.
