The Scleral Lens Education Society has been launched.

The Scleral Lens Education Society (SLS) is an international association for vision care professionals who develop and/or fit scleral contact lenses. It is a non-profit organization committed to teaching contact lens practitioners the science and art of fitting all designs of scleral contact lenses for the purpose of managing corneal irregularity and ocular surface disease. SLS supports public education that highlights the benefits and availability of scleral contact lenses. Eyecare professionals who register (free) on the SLS’s Web site ( will have the opportunity to take advantage of numerous educational resources and to participate in an online forum to present cases or to ask questions. SLS also presents workshops that are listed on the Web site’s homepage. For questions, please contact Greg DeNaeyer, OD, FAAO, at
