Scleral Lenses for Dry Eye and Ocular Surface Disease
Dry eye disease DED is a multifactorial disease that disrupts the tear film and causes ocular surface inflammation. In moderate to severe or refractory DED, scleral lenses can improve both signs and symptoms by maintaining ocular surface hydration. They are used when traditional treatments have failed, but before surgical intervention. Additionally, patients with severe ocular surface disease OSD can benefit from the protection and constant lubrication provided by a scleral lens. This article will focus on their therapeutic use for dry eye and ocular surface disease.
