How to wear scleral contact lenses?

Scleral contact lenses are large diameter (22mm) contacts that can be either purely medical (sold only with prescription by specialised eye care professionals) or purely cosmetic like ColourVue Sclera contact lenses. They are available in a variety of colours and designs and often find their use into movies, costume parties and cosplay.

Because sclerals are much bigger than regular contacts, they are put on to your eye in a different way, which might initially seem difficult for people who are used to regular contacts. With a little practice and patience however, you will master the skill of wearing scleral contacts in no time - all you have to do is slide the lens under your upper eyelid. It's not as difficult as it may sound as scleral lenses are more rigid than regular contacts and therefore easier to handle.

Due to their unusual size, sclera lenses should be kept in a special container that will keep them fresh and clean and will protect them from drying out. Optyk Rozmus adds this type of container to every sclera lens order so you don't have to worry about it.

Remember to visit your eye doctor before wearing contact lenses to make sure your eyes are healthy and it's safe for you to use them.

It's easier to learn a skill by observation than reading about it, so check out the video and learn how to wear these fantastic scleral contact lenses.
