Scleral Lenses – Specialty Contacts
Many optometrists and ophthalmologists recommend scleral contact lenses for a variety of hard-to-fit eyes, including eyes with keratoconus. Because scleral lenses are designed to vault the corneal surface and rest on the less sensitive surface of the sclera, these lenses often are more comfortable for a person with keratoconus. Also, scleral lenses are designed to fit with little or no lens movement during blinks, making them more stable on the eye, compared with traditional corneal gas permeable lenses. MORE.
One of the greatest moments after the birth of your baby is the first time your newborn daughter or son opens their eyes and makes eye contact with you. But don’t be concerned if that doesn’t happen right away.
The visual system of a newborn infant takes some time to develop. In the first week of life, your newborn’s vision is quite blurry, and they see only in shades of gray. It takes several months for your child’s vision to fully develop.
Knowing the expected milestones of your baby’s vision development during their first year of life can ensure your child is seeing properly and enjoying their world to the fullest. MORE.

Once you remove the molds in the morning, your eyesight is clear, the slight change in the curvature of the corneal surface results in clear vision. During waking hours, the dependence on daytime contact lenses or glasses is reduced or eliminated.
The best part about AOK is that it is safe, non-surgical, non-invasive, and reversible. MORE.
