About Sclera Contact Lenses

 

Is the product price for one pair or for one single lens?

All prices and products shown on this site are for 2 lenses (one pair)

 

Does your product come with a lens case and solution?

Along with the lens vial storage solution we also supply a free lens case with all our sclera lenses. If you require additional solution for cleaning, sterile saline contact lens solution can be easily purchased from any chemist.

 

How long will these lenses last?

Sclera contacts range of eye accessories are designed for use up to 1 year of irregular use from opening provided the lenses are well cared for, stored and handled properly.

 

What are your contacts made from? Are they safe to wear?

Our lenses are made from polymacon and water. The percentage of water content is usually 38%. Sclera lenses use medical grade FDA approved materials manufactured in a sterile environment. Find out more about our lenses here. There are no recorded cases of allergic reactions to polymacon, however, precaution is always needed so please read our Wear & Care guide for more information.

 

What are the specifications of your cosmetic lenses?

The inner base curve (the lens - Iris & Pupil - #7 in diagram) of our sclera lenses is BC 8.6 (this is the important measurement of the lens and the one seen on a prescription). The outer base curve of the lenses (the area over the sclera #1 in diagram below) are standard BC 11.0. The contact lens diameter is 22mm.

What marks of quality do your fashion lenses come with?

All lenses sold are ISA approved (ISA9001) and CE approved and with FDA approved materials for use in the UK & Europe.

 

Do colour contact lenses hurt?

Contact lenses can become uncomfortable to wear if they accumulate dirt or have not been cleaned properly. It is important that you clean your lenses daily, which can simply be done by changing the lens solution in a case daily. If you do feel any irritation, remove the lenses immediately and leave them in fresh lens solution.

Coloured contact lenses are designed to be very comfortable as they are made out of soft materials that are hardly noticeable once inserted. These are designed to fit the average eye size.

 

Can I buy sclera contact lenses to match my prescription?

As we do not sell contact lenses (A lens is by definition, an optical element which converges or diverges light.) we are unable to legally supply devices which alter vision to a specific prescription.

 

Can I wear 2 contact lenses in one eye?

We are sometimes asked this question by people that require a prescription to correct their vision.

You must never wear 2 contact lenses in one eye.  You can of course wear a coloured contact lens in combination with glasses to correct your vision.

 

Can I wear my sclera lenses overnight?

No - never sleep in your or prolong the use of lenses longer than is necessary. You can starve your eye of oxygen by doing this and cause damage. Always remember to take your lenses out before going to sleep.

 

 

 

Considering Ordering

 

Do I require a prescription for purchase?

The devices sold on this site are not contact lenses. A lens is by definition, an optical element which converges or diverges light. Our devices do not alter vision in this way and so are considered a cosmetic product and as such do not require a prescription for sale in the UK. This can be compared to the reason by vision altering glasses legally require a prescription by an optometrist, but non vision altering fancy dress glasses or sunglasses do not. We describe the devices as “contact lenses” purely for marketing purposes, however they are cosmetic fashion accessories.

 

How much does the shipping cost?

Shipping cost varies based on individual factors around your location and order. Please proceed to checkout to determine the shipping options and costs for your address.

 

Do the prices include VAT?

Yes, all our prices include VAT as rated within the UK.

 

Can I trust your company?

Sclera CL were the first company in the UK to sell Sclera contact lenses in pairs not on a individual “made to order” basis. Unlike many other companies, our products are manufactured under our strict guidelines and specific specifications in sterile conditions. Our products are packaged in our own high quality branded packaging rather than a generic manufacturers box.

 

Is custom tax included in the price?

Recipients are responsible for any custom tax which may be due in some countries.
