Scleral lens fitting is complicated by scleral irregularities such as blebs, nodules, and pingueculae. Designing scleral lenses to fit over or around irregularities poses unique fitting issues. A new corneo-scleral topography device and software (sMap3D, Precision Ocular Metrology) is now able to accurately map these irregularities, quantify the size and location, and custom design scleral lenses with notches or lift areas that will fit over or around them, decreasing chair time and lens remakes as illustrated by the 3 case reports in the poster. These reports show how the sMap3D is simplifying scleral lens fitting.
