Corneal Edema results from an imbalance in the process of fluid absorption and removal in the cornea. This imbalance may be triggered by various causes:
The symptoms below might indicate the presence of corneal edema:

While corneal edema can be distressing, various treatment options can alleviate your symptoms. Traditional treatment methods include:
While these methods have been effective to a degree, there are innovative and non-invasive alternatives that offer superior benefits — scleral lenses.
At , we understand the discomfort and vision problems that come with corneal edema. This is why we wholeheartedly recommend the use of scleral lenses as a revolutionary treatment for this condition.
Scleral lenses are distinct from traditional lenses due to their unique design. They are larger in diameter and vault over the entire corneal surface, including the swollen or painful areas, and rest on the sclera - the white part of the eye. This design creates a new, undamaged optical surface, resulting in improved vision.
One of the most beneficial features of scleral lenses is the reservoir of saline solution they form between the lens and the cornea. This reservoir consistently hydrates your eye, keeping it moist and reducing the symptoms of dryness and discomfort associated with corneal edema.
Scleral lenses offer another substantial advantage: they prevent friction between the cornea and the eyelid that can occur with conventional lenses. This friction can worsen the symptoms of corneal edema and further harm the ocular surface. By eliminating this issue, scleral lenses offer a more comfortable and less irritating lens-wearing experience.
Scleral lenses are the gold standard of treatment for corneal irregularities, such as corneal edema. They are custom-made to fit your eyes perfectly, providing optimal comfort and vision correction. With their ability to reduce symptoms and enhance vision drastically, they can radically improve your quality of life.
