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. A scleral shell moves with the existing eye and provides symmetry to the eyelid openings.

At Northwest Eye Design, each scleral shell is meticulously handcrafted, using the patient as a model. With an accurate impression and fitting technique, a scleral shell 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.
