Scleral lenses have become a widespread option for the treatment of distorted corneas and ocular surface disease. However, optimal scleral lens fitting and management can be challenging. Scleral lens selection and follow-up care is reviewed by identifying key areas of concern. Common scleral lens problems and troubleshooting techniques are reviewed. Modification of the scleral lens fit including front toric, peripheral toric, peripheral elevation and new surface technologies of scleral lenses along with problem-solving are discussed at length. Specific care and handling of lenses is described.
