Is a Scleral Shell Right for Me?

A scleral shell is a thin ocular prosthesis worn over a nonsighted or smaller eye. It fits like a large contact lens covering the front surface of the eye globe, moves with the existing eye, and provides symmetry to the eyelid openings.

At Northwest Eye Design, scleral shells are meticulously handcrafted, using the patient as a model. With an accurate impression and fitting technique, scleral shells can be worn full-time comfortably. This personalized approach results in precise color matching, maximized movement and a natural looking scleral shell. Many who have tried to wear a prosthetic lens or colored contact lens have had great success wearing a scleral shell.
