Dr. Inayatali is certified from the Scleral Lens Institute and Paragon CRT as an orthokeratologist to fit the most complex lens types including Scleral Lenses. At the Eye Center of Houston, we individualize fittings to fit our patient’s needs, whether it be conventional fittings or advanced customized contacts using our latest OCT technology, our goal is to deliver the clearest most comfortable vision possible.
What is Keratoconus?
Keratoconus occurs when your cornea — the clear, dome-shaped front surface of your eye — thins and gradually bulges outward into a cone shape.
A cone-shaped cornea causes blurred vision and may cause sensitivity to light and glare. Keratoconus usually affects both eyes and generally begins to first affect people during puberty. The specific underlying cause is not fully determined and can be attributed to multiple factors including genetic and environmental ones.
Scleral Contact Lenses
Scleral lenses are larger customized lenses that improve vision for patients suffering from corneal trauma and/or disease.
Scleral lenses are beneficial for patients with eye disorders (keratoconus), Lasik, RK, and or surgical complications. Lenses are a comfortable option to enhance vision and bypass corneal irregularities. Patients who have been unsuccessful with glasses or soft contact lenses are often great candidates for scleral lenses.
If you suffer from keratoconus, corneal disease, injury, or dry eyes, schedule your consultation with Dr. Inayatali.
