In patients with scleral abnormalities such as pingueculae or filtering blebs, adding a microvault to their scleral lenses can help to avoid compression on the elevated area of the conjunctiva. One company, Art Optical, recently announced the addition of this feature to its Ampleye scleral lens. The new option allows the microvault to be customized and placed at any point along the 360-degree edge of the lens based on the estimated width and height of the scleral elevation.
Beyond the new microvault capability, Art Optical says that practitioners will also have full control of the following lens parameters: all four independent fitting zones, lens size between 15mm and 17mm, front surface toricity, quadrant-specific peripheral adjustments and multifocal optics with near zone decentration, among others.
