Abstract

Purpose: To manage the corneal opacity with corneal scleral lens.

Case Report: A 26-year old female came to an eye hospital with a complaint of diminished of vision, glare and redness in both eyes for 10years The unaided visual acuity was finger counting (FC) @ 2 meter with no improvement with pinhole in right eye and counting finger closed to face (CFCF) with no improvement with pinhole in left eye and near <N36 for both eyes. We had fitted a corneal scleral lens which has improved the visual acuity and visual comfort.

Conclusion: This study suggests that the use of larger diameter lenses will be a good option which will create uniform post lens tears reservoirs that neutralize the optical abnormality of irregular cornea.
