Sclera contact lenses designed to be used in different scenarios

Sclera contact lenses

In the late 1800s, Swiss physician A.E. Fick and Paris optician Edouard Kalt were credited with fitting the first contact lenses and they were fitted for the patients for vision problems such as myopia and hyperopia. However, the contact lenses at that time are made with heavy glass and could be used for a few hours only. These lenses made of glass were termed as scleral lenses.

Scleral lenses are large in diameter and cover the complete sclera, the white outer coating of the eye leaving only a little portion in the sides of the eyes visible. These contact lenses could only be worn for a short period at a time.

Later in the 1930s, PPMA - polymethyl methacrylate was development and was used in combination with plastics for the manufacturing of contact lenses. These were in fact known as the hybrid scleral lenses and were made with the combination of both glass and plastic. Around the 1950s, much smaller contact lenses in comparison to scleral contact lenses were developed. They cover only the cornea of the eyes and not the complete eyes.

Apart from the vision corrective ones, sclera contact lenses are also available with special effects. Earlier, black sclera contact lenses were used by theatrical and movie industries only. Therefore, we all had commonly seen their use in the theatrical plays, movies, photo shoots, and various other such activities.  The most commonly available special effect scleral contact lenses include the black-outs and the white-outs. These contact lenses help the wearers in creating a dramatic look since they cover the white part of the eyes also. They give an illusion of the whole eye being completely black or white. This is the reason that makes these contact lenses so popular if someone wants to create a look of the Gothic character. This makes them ideal for achieving dramatic look and with complete ease. These sclera contact lenses can be commonly used in different scenarios such as creating a villain look in the movie, matching your Gothic costume in Halloween or any other costume party for creating a scary look etc.  

Sclera contacts should not be worn unceasingly for long periods of time since prolonged use can cause strain and infection in the eyes. And they should be clean and disinfected carefully before and after each use, according to your doctor's instruction. While using Halloween contact lenses, if you notice issues such as redness, swelling, or feel any sort of pain, immediately contact your eye doctor.
