GPs and Sclerals

Hard Case, Hard Lenses

Although RGPs can be difficult to fit, the right technique can provide challenging patients clearer vision.

Climb on the Health Bandwagon

Known primarily for their quality of vision, an easily overlooked benefit of GP lenses is their excellent ocular health profile.

Lend Color to the Fit

The transition from soft lenses to GPs can be difficult, but this creative solution could win over some of your patients.

Post-keratoplasty: Consider Sclerals

Corneal GP lenses have traditionally been a go-to option for these cases, but some patients may benefit from another modality.

Foggy with No Chance of Moisture

Poor front surface wettability and lens fogging can complicate scleral lens wear; identifying the cause can help you pick the right treatment strategy.

Get Started with Sclerals

Identifying candidates, picking a fitting set and knowing what to look for during a trial fitting will help you lay the groundwork for success.

This modality could be helpful for patients with healthy corneas, but concerns about its effect on corneal physiology still exist.

Freedom on Your Fingertip: GP, Hybrid and Scleral Multifocals

These options offer crisper vision than soft lenses and custom-tailored solutions that can satisfy even the most dubious patients.

Avoid the Near Miss

Understanding GP multifocal lens designs and how the patient’s anatomy influences the choice can help you provide spectacle independence for both reading and distance acuity.

Lenticular astigmatism complicated an already-difficult case. This patient needed a little extra help before finding a good fit.
