has great information for practitioners and patients alike! Printable information, videos, and brochures are available. We have recently updated application and removal videos on our website:

Also visit the GPLI and I-site websites for valuable scleral lens information.
Membership allows contact lens fitters access to the practitioner's section of the website that contains scleral lens fitting resources.
One of the most frequent questions we get from members is: "How do I get my name listed in the Fitters section of the website?" To be listed as a Fitter on the website, you must become a Fellow of the SLS.
Optometrists, ophthalmologists, and Fellows of the Contact Lens Society of America (FCLSA) who have proven themselves in the field of scleral lens fitting can apply for status as a Fellow of the Scleral Lens Education Society.
