Find an Alternative to Traditional Contact Lenses

Discover the possibilities of scleral lenses in Plymouth or Mansfield, MA

Have you had trouble finding contact lenses that work for you? Scleral lenses might be the solution to your problems. BayState Eye Center offers custom-made scleral lenses for patients in our Plymouth and Mansfield, MA offices.

Scleral lenses are a great option for those with:

  • Dry eye syndrome: Scleral lenses have a space between their rear surface and the cornea, which holds tears and relieves discomfort.
  • Keratoconus: Scleral lenses fit an irregular eye shape more easily than many other lenses.
  • Surgical complications: These lenses suit eyes with unusually shaped corneas due to LASIK or other surgery.

To find out whether scleral lenses right for you, meet with an experienced optometrist at BayState Eye Center.

How are scleral lenses different from other contact lenses?

Scleral lenses are similar to traditional contact lenses you're familiar with, but they have a wider diameter; this means they cover the sclera instead of only the cornea. Their size also makes them more difficult to dislodge. Each scleral lens is custom-made for stability, shape and comfort. Call 508-339-7600 learn more about scleral lenses.
