Scleral contact lenses are a life-changing treatment option for patients who have struggled to find a comfortable lens fit and great vision correction in the past — particularly for those with irregular corneal or scleral shapes or ocular diseases.
Patients must take special care of their scleral lenses, washing their hands thoroughly and filling the bowl of each lens with a non-preserved saline solution before inserting it in the eye. Using the wrong type of saline solution can cause serious discomfort or infection.
A 2021 study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Optometry highlighted the possible consequences of using a saline solution not designed for scleral lenses. The study found that “off-label multidose preservative-free saline commonly used to rinse and fill scleral lenses before application on the eye may become contaminated with microorganisms once the bottle has been opened. Eye care practitioners and scleral lens patients should be aware of these potential contaminations and prioritize lens, hand, and environmental hygiene to minimize the risk of ocular complications.”
