Scleral Lenses & Scuba Diving – Call to Partake in a Patient Survey
Visser Contact Lens Practice and the Diving Alert Network (DAN) are conducting a research project to investigate scleral lens wear under scuba diving conditions. Currently, daily disposable soft lenses are the first choice to wear, but gas-permeable scleral lenses while diving are being used increasingly worldwide. How these lenses perform under scuba diving conditions has not been investigated to date, though, and the questions of whether scleral lenses are safe to use while diving and provide clear underwater vision remain unanswered. For this research, we are looking for scleral lens wearers who are involved in the act of scuba diving with scleral lenses, and we ask them to complete a questionnaire about their experiences. For this reason, we reach out to specialty lens practitioners and ask them to approach scleral lens wearers who can partake in the questionnaire via one of the following two links below. Thank you kindly for your participation.
