How Long Does It Take To Switch From Glasses to Scleral Lenses?

Switching from glasses to scleral contact lenses can take some time and adjustment.

Have Trouble Wearing Contacts? Scleral Lenses May Be The Answer!

Scleral lenses are larger than traditional contact lenses and are designed to correct more severe vision problems, such as keratoconus and severe dry eye. Unlike traditional contact lenses, scleral lenses are filled with a solution before being placed on the eye, which can take some getting used to.

How Do I Get Fitted for Scleral Lenses?

Before switching to scleral lenses, it's important to have a thorough eye exam and consultation with an eye doctor experienced in fitting scleral lenses. This will ensure that scleral lenses are the right choice for your individual needs and that they are properly fitted for optimal comfort and vision.

Once a decision has been made to switch to scleral lenses, the fitting process can take several visits to the eye doctor. During the first fitting, the doctor will take measurements of your eyes to determine the appropriate size and curvature of the lenses. The doctor may also make any necessary adjustments to the lenses to ensure a proper fit.

Adjusting to Scleral Lenses

It's not uncommon for it to take a few weeks to adjust to scleral lenses, as the larger size and filling solution can feel foreign to the eye at first. The eye doctor will provide instructions on how to properly insert, remove, and care for the lenses, as well as how to monitor for any potential complications.
