Re: Scleral Lens

It took me about 3 or 4 weeks before I could regularly get them in first time without bubbles. Suddenly something clicked and I got the knack of it.

Re: Scleral Lens

Great news! Do let me/us know how you are getting on with it in a week or so as you get more used to it.
Good luck!

Re: Vision with scleral lens

No specs at the moment, just the scleral lens. Still just experiencing a partial correction, rather than great vision, but I have a new appt with the optometrist in 6 weeks. Should I expect more than a partial correction with a scleral lens? I don't know if my expectations are just too high! Beginni...

Re: Scleral Lens

Do you mind if I ask some additional questions about scleral lenses here ? I don't want to hijack the original post though...! This thread seems like a good place to ask. 1. When I put them in the lens is full of liquid, but when I remove it, it seems like it is totally empty/ dry. Is this normal/to...

Re: Vision with scleral lens

I don't think so.

I have struggled to avoid air bubbles on insertion, but I have been really meticulous and I keep on trying (taking them in & out) until I am satisfied its correct (this morning in took me 40 minutes (!)).

Vision with scleral lens

I got a scleral lens 3 days ago. Previously, I had corrected my keratoconus vision with specs. I only had a partial correction, but I only have it in one eye. Anyway, I thought that with the scleral lens I would achieve near-perfect vision, so I thought I would give it a go. Now, it has only been 3 ...

Re: Scleral Lens

Brilliant thanks! An update that might be helpful for the original post: I have been using them for only 3 days and my observations so far are: 1. Getting them out is really easy. You just gently push the plunger so it sticks on and then pull and it just pops right out. You don't feel a thing. You j...

Re: Scleral Lens

I too recently got a scleral lens (yesterday). I have a plunger to put them in. At the hospital under the guidance of the optometrist I managed to get them in and out twice ok using the plunger. However, at home I cannot get them in without a massive air bubble. I am getting so frustrated and angry ...
