“Centre of Clinical Excellence”

We are the only practice in Cyprus that provides the option of scleral lenses!

The fitting is different from the smaller rigid gas permeable lenses and requires great skill, knowledge and experience.

Large diameter scleral lens Eye wearing mini-scleral lens

These are larger lenses (16-23mm in size) that rest on the white area of the eye (the sclera) and they are comfortable beside their large diameter. They provide well centered optics, stability and minimal movement with blink.

They are offered in

  • Advanced Keratoconus
  • Pellucid Marginal Degeneration
  • Keratoglobus

But also

  • Lower grades of keratoconus where lens tolerance is a problem
  • Corneal transplants (tilted, decentred, protrusive) that again a scleral lens is the only option
  • High myopia, hypermetropia and astigmatism
  • Corneal hydration in serious dry eye conditions such as Steven-Johnson syndrome
  • Prevention of corneal exposure from poor lid closure or lid absence
