Scleral Lenses are recommended for individuals with astigmatism due to their ability to correct the irregular shape of the cornea or the front surface of the eye caused by astigmatism. Unlike traditional gas permeable contact lenses, which only rest on the cornea, scleral lenses are designed to vault over the cornea and rest on the sclera, the white part of the eye. This provides a number of benefits for individuals with astigmatism, including improved visual acuity, greater stability, and less lens rotation.

In the past, the assumption was that, like the cornea, the sclera features a curved shape. However, studies have revealed that from the peripheral cornea onwards, for most patients, the sclera continues in a straight line. Scleral shapes can also be inconsistent from one meridian to the next. Since every patient is unique, the best way to ensure the most accurate and comfortable fit for scleral lenses is to perform scleral topography.
