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!

Very impressed with AccuVision's staff! Everyone was very friendly and answered any questions, wheth... er it was for eye health or any doubts about prescription. The tech, Jonathan I think, was very helpful and kind and the Doctor I saw, Dr. Zacharopoulos, was very thorough, explained everything, and made great conversation! The office staff was very kind as well, and made the effort to ensure everything was correct and any contacts rebates were accounted for. One of the staff, Tess I believe, when I called back to order colored lenses was very helpful and checked stock and shipping options so I could have the lenses exactly when I need them. Less important, but also the office itself was nice, clean, and quaint. Very good vibes all around, so all in all, very impressed. Thanks so much team! 🙂

Look no further, your search is over! My wife and I we're quite impressed with everyone at this offi... ce and would recommend them over any other place in town. They answered any and all questions we had and never felt rushed during our exams. Very good "attention to details", I guess, would best describe our encounter with this office. We will definitely be back and have already recommended our brother to them and they took care of him last minute due to him having a piece of debris in his eye. Class act place with class act people!!! See you soon when our glasses are ready!

Stopped by Accuvision Optical on Main street in Dunedin today without an appointment to see if they ... could repair my 90 year old mother's eyeglasses. The receptionist was busy helping another client so I had the pleasure of having Michael appear from down the hall to help me. He was most courteous and did not hesitate to stop what he was doing to put my mom's glasses back together ( the tiniest screw had fallen out of the front that keeps the sides connected to the lenses). I gave him the glasses in a pile and he was back in a flash with them repaired, and he even replaced the nose pieces at no charge. Top notch service with a genuine smile, thank you again Michael for your help today.

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.
