Medical contact lenses
A damaged cornea or a (medical) eye condition can cause your vision to deteriorate. The cornea is no longer smooth and this distorts the light entering your eyes. These eye problems cannot always be improved with eyeglasses, but they can often be improved with special contact lenses. A special contact lens in the eye will make the surface smooth again so that the light enters your eyes properly.
Our medical contact lenses are specially designed for keratoconus (cone-shaped corneal abnormality), damaged or irregular cornea and post-refractive surgery, among others. Our medical contact lenses can also provide a solution for (very) dry or painful eyes.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a sclera lens?Sclera contact lenses are larger than normal contact lenses. Normal contact lenses roughly cover your cornea (the transparent part of the eye, in front of the iris). Sclera lenses, on the other hand, are larger: they partially or completely span the white of the eye, or sclera. “I bet that’s not comfortable.” Quite the contrary! Unlike the cornea, the sclera is relatively insensitive. So you don’t feel the lenses, making them feel very comfortable.
Which contact lens is best for my eyes?It depends entirely on you and your eyes. During an eye exam an eye care specialist assesses your eyes and looks at the strength and shape of your eye, among other things. You personal situation is also evaluated: When do you want to use them? How often? In what work environment? Based on all the measurements, you can choose the best lenses together with the specialist. Visit your nearest optician for an eye exam or consultation.
What should I look for in lenses for my child?Children can wear lenses as young as 8 years old on average. (1) Before a child can start wearing lenses, the eye care specialist explains what it means to wear the lenses and the responsibilities involved for the child, such as in the area of hygiene.
