Diagnostic fitting still best method for scleral lenses, researchers say

  • May 15, 2014

ORLANDO, Fla. – After evaluating the relationship between sagittal depth and vault, researchers concluded that diagnostic fitting may remain the most efficient way to select base curves for scleral lenses.

Muriel M. Schornack, OD, of the Mayo Clinic, in a poster here at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology meeting, presented results of a study involving 28 participants who were fit with a 15-mm diameter Jupiter scleral lens (Visionary Optics) on a randomly selected eye. Anterior chamber depth, sagittal depth to a limbal chord, sagittal depth to a 14-mm chord across the anterior chamber and vault were measured by Scheimpflug photography with a Pentacam (Oculus), according to the poster.
