What Do You Do If Your Scleral Lens Is Stuck On Your Eye

How do I remove my scleral lens if it is stuck?

  • First, make sure the small plunger is toward the periphery of the lens, not directly in the center of your eye. If the plunger is in the center of your eye, it will be difficult to remove.
  • You can also try a twisting motion as you pull the lens out to break the suction.
  • You can also apply some artificial tears to your eye, gently massage your eyelids with the eye closed, then attempt removal again.
  • If you have tried all of these but you still have major difficulty removing the lens, it may be a sign that the fit of the lens may need to be adjusted. Please see your eye doctor for help with this.
