Scleral contact lenses are prescribed by eye care professionals for a variety of irregular cornea conditions. They are designed to vault or rise over the irregular cornea condition and land on the white part of the eye (called the sclera). They are slightly larger (16.0 mm) than hybrid contact lenses (14.5mm) and while hybrid lenses have both rigid and soft materials, the entire scleral lens is made from a gas permeable material.

This blog article highlights different contact lens options. The SynergEyes scleral lens became available in the U.S. in 2017.

The SynergEyes VS lens is an innovative scleral lens designed to accommodate a wide variety of corneal conditions. The lens was designed using the latest research on the shape of the eye.


The lens was designed by acclaimed scleral lens authorities at Visser Contact Lens, in association with NKL Contactlenzen, a Menicon subsidiary, in the Netherlands. The lens has been successfully prescribed to thousands of irregular cornea contact lens patients in 24 Visser Contact Lens Eye Clinics in Europe. This lens is available in eye care of practices across the United States.
