The Scleral Lens Fit Scales demonstrate how to correctly estimate the clearance (amount of tears underneath portions of a lens, measured in microns) by comparing the tear layer thickness to the center thickness of the lens. Optic sections demonstrate the tear thickness underneath the lens both centrally and at the limbal area. Also shown are various edge clearances. Printing and shipping has been provided for by an unrestricted education grant from the Bausch + Lomb Boston Custom Lab Channel.
