The convenience and comfort of contact lenses make them the natural choice for busy professionals, athletes, and anyone who likes to spend their life on the go. Unfortunately, contact lenses are not comfortable for everyone. Various ocular conditions, such as astigmatism and Keratoconus, can make them difficult to fit and wear. Now, however, the California Keratoconus Center offers Zen Lens contacts. These innovative new contact lenses are perfect for active people with Keratoconus. Read on to find out if they are right for you!

Benefits of Scleral Contacts

Scleral lenses can help to resolve the vision problems of Keratoconus and make contact lenses comfortable for anyone, even those who are unable to wear traditional contacts. Since they do not touch the cornea and create a “vault” of fluid over the eye to keep it moist and healthy, they are a fantastic choice for anyone with Keratoconus and other corneal irregularities.

The Zen Lens contact system, developed by a team of expert Optometrists, is the next stage in contact lens innovation. It allows our Keratoconus specialists to make minute adjustments to the fit, meaning they can tailor the lens precisely to your eyes. It also completely vaults over the cornea without making direct contact while keeping the eye hydrated and healthy throughout the day. Many people who have never been able to wear contact lenses comfortably find that scleral lenses suit their needs perfectly.

Zen Lens Contact Lenses offer:

  • Comfort: Zen Lens contacts offer unbelievable comfort to the wearer.
  • Reduced Dryness: Scleral lenses are fit with a tear layer between the cornea and lens that stays consistent throughout the day.
  • Consistent Vision: Zen lenses are fit with a tear film between the back surface and the cornea of the contact lens.
  • Reduced Starbursts and Glare  Zen lenses have large optic zones that stay centered over the pupil allowing the patient optics without glare and flare.
  • Stability: Zen Lens contacts are very stable on the eye, offering consistent, stable optics.

Great Fit

The Zen Lens scleral lens is specifically designed to mold to a wide variety of eye shapes and sizes, making them more comfortable and durable than any contact lenses you have ever worn. Its cutting-edge Smart Curve™ system allows your Optometrist to individually adjust each eye measurement, while its comprehensive 28-lens diagnostic system keeps the fitting procedure quick and efficient.

Zen Lens contacts offer both prolate designs, which are lengthened toward the poles, and oblate designs, which are flattened toward the poles, to suit every corneal shape. If you have an unusual corneal shape, our Keratoconus specialists can customize the Zen Lens optics to ensure clear vision and tweak their physical shape until they are perfectly comfortable. For these reasons, Zen Lens contacts have been our most popular and requested scleral contacts ever since they arrived.

Saves Time

The Zen Lens contact fitting procedure is much more efficient and straightforward than the contact lens fitting processes of the past. Our specialists can now identify the areas of the contact lens that need to be fitted more precisely. While previous methods required Optometrists to spend long appointments readjusting and refitting the lenses, Zen Lens contacts allow quick and easy modifications. That means less time sitting in a chair being measured and more time living your life!
