Symptoms of Glaucoma

Scleral lenses are special contact lenses that sit on the white part of your eye, called the sclera. They are bigger than regular contact lenses.

Who Can Benefit From Prosthetic Iris-Colored Lenses?

Prosthetic contact lenses mask eye issues caused by eye diseases, birth defects, or injury.

Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a prevalent eye condition where the eye does not bend or refract light correctly, leading to a blurry view of distant objects.
