Q&A with Dr. H

Dr. Harmer Answers Your Eyecare Questions

What is a therapeutic scleral lens?

Therapeutic scleral lenses are another mechanical treatment for dry eye. The scleral contact lens utilizes advances in high oxygen permeable contact lens materials. The scleral lens is a large diameter rigid contact lens that rests on the white part of the eye (the sclera) and vaults over the cornea. This vaulting creates a large tear reservoir filled with a sterile saline solution, which lubricates your eye throughout the day. This treatment can be very rewarding for severe dry eye patients who have not responded to other therapies. It has also been successful in those who have become hypersensitive (allergic) to medical therapy over long periods.

LipiFlow ®– Innovative Dry Eye Treatment

LipiFlow by TearScienceLipiFlow ® is a new treatment for dry eye that restores the lipid layer of the tear film, so the tears function better.
