SCLERAL LENSES BY PAUL MOLDOVANOS OPTOMETRIST
http://www.paulmoldovanos.co.za/scleral-lenses-five-faq/These lenses have been both the most exciting, challenging and rewarding of my career.
They have also been the most positively received lenses due to their stability and comfort, as well as being the only contact lenses that mask the symptoms of dry eye disease.
As with hard lenses, Sclerals are indicated in cases where the corneal surface is irregular. Some examples are Keratoconus, post-Corneal Grafts, unmanageable dry eye, Sjogren’s Syndrome, post-LASIK and post-RK complications, Steven-Johnson Syndrome, Pellucid Marginal Degeneration, Corneal injury, high Myopia and Astigmatism.
Sclerals are much larger (17 to 20 mm), than hard lenses, which vary from 8 to 10 mm. They do not float on the tear layer, but actually rest on the white part of the eye (the sclera), hence their name.
If you are not succeeding with your current contact lenses, either due to poor vision, poor comfort, dry eye, or a combination of the above, give our Scleral lenses a chance. With hundreds of successful fits since their introduction in 2014, we would love to provide the opportunity to give you clear, comfortable vision.

SLERAL LENSES - WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY:
From: Letago Mveleli Langa
I am writing this mail to express my sincere gratitude to you for helping me with this kind of contact lenses (Scleral contact lenses). My vision has improved remarkably and I am now able to see and perform my daily tasks with ease. Prior to wearing this contact lenses my condition of keratoconus literally rendered me blind. I could hardly identify a person except through his voice and I had to come within very close range to read anything. The performance of this contact lenses surpassed my expectations. I can write quite a lot about the hardships I endured as a result of my eye condition. All that has changed now. Although a bit challenging when you start wearing them after two weeks or so I was able to fit them with ease. They never pop out and my eyes just look normal. I also thank technology for bringing about this wonders.
