At North Toronto Medical Optometry and Vision Care, we fit even the most difficult eyes in contact lenses. We have gained expertise in fitting scleral contacts lenses for medical eye conditions such as complex post-refractive surgery cases, Keratoconus and after Corneal Transplantation Surgery. Scleral lenses are also highly effective for providing stable vision correction in many patients that have undergone Radial Keratotomy surgery (R-K surgery).
Dr. Echharam uses many advanced specialized contact lens designs including Rose K, and Scleral Contact Lenses like Blanchard MSD, One Fit 2.0 and Onefit Medical to give her patients the best attainable result.
Scleral lenses are large-diameter lenses designed to vault the cornea and rest on the conjunctival tissue sitting on top of the sclera. The space between the back surface of the lens and the cornea acts as a fluid reservoir.
