    Wavefront corrected scleral lenses

    I’m now able to offer patients highly customized optics in the form of wavefront correction to improve visual acuity for eyes that have residual higher order aberrations with scleral lenses.

    I had the opportunity last week to visit Medlens Innovations, the lab who manufactures the Jupiter scleral contact lens.  I spent a full day with Dr. Robert Breece, the designer of the Jupiter scleral contact lens, discussing the manufacturing and fitting of scleral lenses.  Dr. Breece is developing a variation of the Jupiter scleral lens, that I will soon be using for  select patients.  Dr. Christina Sindt, Dr. Breece, and myself also met and discussed the start up of an educational foundation, the purpose of which is to educate contact lens fitters and patients about scleral contact lenses. 

    Please email any questions you may have.

  • Scleral Lens

    The Scleral LenseScleral Contact Lenses hold a tear reservoir, which can help patients in two ways.  First,  it is able to  mask irregularities of the cornea improving vision even when glasses and soft contact lenses can’t.  The second way, and one that is unique to scleral lenses, is that the reservoir provides a therapeutic effect by continually bathing the cornea.  Here is a photograph of a cross section of a scleral lens on a patient’s  eye.  The liquid reservoir has been highlighted with a green dye for photographic and observational purposes.  Normally the reservoir is clear.  To the left of the reservoir is the cross section of the scleral lens and to the right of the reservoir is the cross section of the cornea.





  • Welcome to The Scleral Lens Center!


    I will update this blog regularly with information concerning scleral contact lenses and anterior segment disorders.  Please email at gdenaeyer@arenaeyesurgeons.com if you have questions or issues you would like for me to address.  Please let me know if I can post your inquiry and my response on the blog so this information can be shared. 

    Last night I hosted the first central ohio Keratoconus support group meeting.  It was well attended and we received a lot of positive feedback. 

    Dr. Curt Kelley gave an overview of KC. Dr. Carrie Lembach lectured on modern medical management strategies for KC. I presented information about contact lens designs and options available for KC.

    I will schedule a follow up meeting for sometime this summer.  The next gathering will focus on patient’s experiences living with keratoconus.

    Thank you to The National Keratoconus Foundation and Essilor for their sponsorship and support.
