Not sure what to tell you about the air bubbles, I don't have a scleral lens like you do so not sure if there is a big difference between your lens and mine as far as air bubbles go. I do have issues sometimes if I put to many drops in the lens, now that I think about it perhaps its air bubbles too! I've only put the lens in more that once a couple of times. Sometimes I just push on the lens a little with my lid down and that gets rid of the excess drops/air bubbles. Usually I just go to work and everything works out in a 1/2 hour or so. Hopefully the doctor can help you out more and I will ask when I go back at the end of the month.
Kaybo, as I told Nancyann, please look into this, an occasional bad day with my lens(trying different ones) is better than the best day without it. Let us know what you find out, realize it's not for everyone but so far it has worked for all that have tried it or something like it. Good luck, Jill
