How to Insert and Remove a Scleral Lens
Scleral lenses are used to help prevent eye damage after surgery, after an injury or corneal transplant, and to correct certain kinds of vision problems, such as keratoconus. A scleral lens is much bigger than a regular contact lens, so you have to follow a special procedure to insert and remove it. When inserting a scleral lens, the eye needs to be held wide open. Removing the lens can feel strange at first because the lens is suctioned to your eye, and you must break this suction to remove the lens. Just remember that practice makes perfect!
