In the Scleral Lens World, It Seems That Smaller is Better

Mini and large sclerals are more and more prescribed. Both are sharing the same fitting philosophy and are offering the same benefits. However, sclerals of smaller diameter are associated with fewer complications and troubleshooting. They are easier to handle and are associated with reduced chair time. This lecture will demonstrate that when comes the time to fit normal cornea patients, or when looking at low to moderate ectasia, smaller sclerals constitute a better alternative.
