Over the last few years scleral gas permeable contact lenses have emerged as one our best tools for fitting difficult cases. From keratoconus to trauma, and even for more straightforward cases, sclerals are having a profound impact on specialty fitting. This email series highlights 12 cases presented by some of eyecare’s top specialty contact lens practitioners. The cases feature Zenlens, the remarkable new scleral from Alden Optical. Throughout this series, we hope you will learn much about contemporary scleral lens fitting and the innovative aspects of Zenlens that make it a valuable design in my practice.
