Despite a recent resurgence in popularity of scleral lenses, the literature to
date is quite limited regarding challenges faced by practitioners. Practitioners may
manage one or multiple challenges daily. This chapter explores different topics from
the contributors’ personal perspectives. Authors were asked to write about their unique
experiences and fitting philosophies for a variety of situations that scleral lens
practitioners may encounter. Common topics are included, however not every possible
challenge is covered.
