Evaluation of Scleral contact lens
PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy of scleral contact lenses (ScCLs) as an alternative or as an adjunct to surgical correction for the management of complex ptosis.
METHODS: A retrospective case-note review was used to determine the subjective function and cosmetic acceptability of the lenses. Digital photographs were taken, both with and without the lens in place; analytic software was used to assess the vertical height of the palpebral aperture (PA) and the upper margin-reflex distance. Three masked observers independently graded the photographs for cosmesis as “good,” “moderate,” or “poor.”
