BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Although scleral contact lenses are prescribed with increasing frequency, little is known about their long-term effects on ocular physiology. The main goal of this paper is to predict values of oxygen transmissibility of scleral lens systems by applying the concept of resistors in series to parameters characteristic of current scleral lenses. A second aim is to find the maximal lens and post-lens tear layer thickness combinations above which hypoxia-induced corneal swelling… CONTINUE READING
