How to wear scleral contact lenses?
Large 22mm diameter contact lenses called scleral contacts, are a relatively new kind of contact lens, that is still gaining popularity. Commercially available scleral lenses are zero power, cosmetic contacts used for special occasions, such as cosplay and Halloween. You can buy scleral contacts in our shop here. These lenses create an amazing effect on the eye as they cover not only your iris, but also the white part of your eyes. Thanks to this freaky effect, sclera lenses are often used in movies instead of costly special effects.
Due to their size, scleral contact lenses need to be handled and stored differently compared to regular contacts. Putting them in might turn out tricky for people who have only used regular lenses before. Not to worry though, it's not as hard as it seems and you will learn how to use them very quickly. The trick is to slide the lens under your upper eyelid. You can do that quite easily thanks to the fact, that sclerals are more rigid than normal contacts.
Sclerals can be rinsed and stored in regular contact lens solution, but they do need a different container due to their large diameter. Optyk Rozmus adds such a container to each sclera lenses order, so you don't need to buy it separately.
Just like with any other type of contact lenses, make sure you visit your eye doctor before buying scleral lenses. You need your eyes to be healthy to be able to wear them safely.
