Scleral lenses are different from today's contact lenses. Scleral lenses cover the entire surface of the eye, including the sclera, the white portion of the eye. The portion of the lens that covers the cornea is a domed surface. Scleral lenses were originally developed in the 19th century and are still used by some people, particularly by those who need rigid lenses to see clearly but cannot tolerate modern small contact lenses.
