Bubble In Scleral Lenses

Bubbles in scleral lenses can be bothersome.  A large bubble may interfere with your vision and you will feel the lens will move more.  This happens when you insert your lens incorrectly such as when you had not filled the lens bowl completely, you moved your eye away from the lens when the lens was about to touch your cornea or your eyelid may have moved the lens down upon insertion allowing bubbles to enter the lens.  All you have to do is to reinsert the lens again. If you were having difficulty to avoid very small bubbles in the lens, then you can try to put 2 drops of Celluvisc drops in the lens bowl then fill the remaining space with non-preserved, non-buffered saline.  This will hopefully help prevent air to enter.  Happy wearing!
