We're offering a hands-on 5 hour class for those who want to learn or improve their scleral lens fitting skills. Our Custom Stable Fridays class takes place every other month at our state-of-the-art facilities in Springfield, Oregon. Every attendee will get to fit and manufacturer their own lenses. Visit our Current Events page for more info.
Ferris State University has put together a great resource geared toward practitioners who fit or are interested in fitting scleral lenses. The information is well organized and includes downloadable content such as posters and clinical education material. Take a look.
The Custom Stable was utilized in a clinical study researching scleral lens use on normal corneas.

We are proud to promote Amigos Eyecare, a student led organization at Pacific University College of Optometry which provides medical eyecare to underprivileged areas around the world. Averaging seven trips worldwide per year, one of the slated trips will be to Tanzania, east-Africa in December 2016. With the assistance of the The Oregon Sight and Hearing Foundation (a project of the Lions Club) and many other groups which help to collect 'old glasses', students and doctors are able to examine & dispense glasses to those who would otherwise not have access to medical eye care and vision services.
This is an area of the world with great need, many of the nomadic people (the Maasai) have never seen a doctor of any sort in their lives. The amount of pathology & blindness in Tanzania is staggering. Ultraviolet light exposure is the leading cause of cataract formation, it can also contribute to macular degeneration and pterygium formation. These three causes of blindness could be reduced significantly by wearing non-prescription sunglasses.
