Q: What are Scleral Contact Lenses?
A: Scleral lenses are custom made lenses that rest on the sclera, the whites of your eyes. The size of the lens offers great vision that isn't possible with any other vision solution. These lenses provide a solution for those patients who can't wear other types of contact lenses due to dry eyes, complications from LASIK surgery, kerataconus, and other eye issues.
Q: What eye drops do you recommend for dry eye syndrome?
A: There are 2 prescription eyedrops on the market right now, Restasis and Xiidra. Both eyedrops reduce inflammation. Restasis takes longer for patients to notice symptom abatement, while Xiidra tends to provide relief faster. After a thorough eye exam, focusing on your dry eye symptoms, our eye doctor will be able to determine which eye drop would be best for your eye condition.
