I have aqueous deficiency as my main problem. My schirmers under controlled conditions with anesthesia were 1mm left eye and 2-3mm right eye. I got Boston Scleral Lens almost two years ago and have been unable to make a successful wear of them. I've had one trip for consultation with two additional fitting sessions a year apart that just has not come up with something that will work on my most problematic eye.
Does anyone have aqeous defficiency with scleras? I can wear regular contacts for about 12 hours or so even though my schirmer is still a 2. I swear my eyes produce more tears, I think the anesthitizing really messes the system up.
I've had Sjogrens diagnosis since I've had the lens among other eye problems (not caused by the lens).
Question: since you can wear regular contacts for 12 hours, why are you looking into lens that cost $8,000? Just curious. You also must make a trip or more to Boston. Maybe I missed the reason you'd need the BSL.
Don't trust any refractive surgeon with YOUR eyes.
