Title: Scleral to PROSE
Post by: Amz569 on March 01, 2019, 08:33:47 am
Has anyone upgraded from a scleral lens to PROSE? My eye is so red all the time but I love my scleral. Considering upgrading to the PROSE as it’s custom fit specifically to your eye whereas scleral only has standard diameters. Wondering if anyone has done this and thoughts? Curious if a better fit would be less irritating to the eye and reduce the redness.

Hi, I don't know anything about the prose but I do know your eye shouldn't be red with the Scleral.  I quit using it about 3 years ago and started using the Acuvue Oasys w/Hydraluxe daily lens.  No more RED eye!  The lens costs about one dollar a day but there's no chemicals or cleaning, just throw the lens out, less chance of infections too.  I have VSP eye insurance now so they pay for my lenses as my eye doctor stated I need the lens for medical reasons.  The insurance costs me $15 a month but well worth it for the lenses. 

Will check into the prose.  Jill
