Prosthetic Scleral Lens

This is a photo of a prosthetic scleral lens over an opaque cornea. The lens is painted by hand to match the natural coloring of the patient’s “good” eye. The paint is applied to the posterior portion of the lens and then a special lacquer if applied to seal the paint. The lacquer is used only where the design is made (not in the periphery) so as not to interfere with the oxygen permeability of the lens. The scleral lens is made from a highly oxygen permeable material that is FDA approved. We use an artist to apply this paint by hand in order to create a very natural look so that both eyes appear the same.

EyePrint Pro

EyePrintPro technology creates a scleral lens based on a mold of the cornea. The molding is accurate to 1 or 2 microns and fits perfectly because it exactly mirrors the irregularities of the individual corneal surface. The technology is well suited for post-Lasik, Keratoconus, RK, eye injury, and corneal transplant patients. Read More in this PDF about EyePrintPro Scleral Lens Technology
