Scleral Lens Evaluation: What to expect?
Scleral lenses are prosthetic devices that truly are making a difference for patients who are unable to achieve optimal vision , comfort, and corneal health with other lens modalities.

Patients are often referred to The Chicago Scleral Lens Center of Excellence as a “last refractive effort” prior to corneal surgery.

The staff will assist you with obtaining your medical and ocular records, referral forms, and review your insurance coverage.

Many patients are not aware that the fitting evaluation and scleral contact lenses are often covered by medical and vision insurance plans if the lens devices are deemed "medically necessary".

Our team goes above and beyond to assist our patients with this process. As a courtesy, our office also offers Care Credit financing to those who qualify. All patients will receive a copy of our specialty contact lens prescription and management contract. Once full payment is received, custom diagnostic lenses will be fit and ordered. Professional service fees are non-refundable. Scleral lens material fees are refundable.

The Chicago Center Scleral Lens Center of Excellence “Scleral Lens Evaluation” includes:
This evaluation is a 1 to 3 hour initial consultation, so plan accordingly with your schedule. To schedule your scleral lens evaluation you can either contact our Scleral Lens Team Leader, Jennifer Pankow, at 708-229-2200, or click here. You can also contact the founder and President of The Chicago Scleral Center of Excellence, Dr. Casey Hogan, directly by calling 708-229-2200, for general questions.
 
Scleral Lens During the consultation, all previous medical and ocular records are reviewed. Corneal topography , anterior segment optical coherence tomography, and pachymetry are performed. Our doctors will then diagnostically fit trial scleral lens devices on the eye(s) to determine best corrected and potential for visual improvement and relief of ocular symptoms.

If during the consultation it is determined that scleral lens devices are indicated, custom prosthetic lens devices will be ordered. The patient will then return for post-fitting visits to learn insertion, removal, and care of the scleral lenses.

Our staff are experts with training. The diagnostic lenses are evaluated by one of our doctors and dispensed. The patient is asked to return at one week wearing the lenses for a minimum of six hours and the lens device(s) are then evaluated again by one of our doctors with the precise aid of anterior segment optical coherence tomography.

If all is deemed proper and healthy, a summary report is sent to the referring medical professional, and the patient is scheduled back for post-fit 1 month, 3 months, and 6 month visits.

All visits in the first three months are covered by the original prescription and management evaluation fee.
