Case report on the clinical implications of mini-scleral gas-permeable contact lenses in the treatment of corneal disorders. Methods. Three patients with different corneal disorders were fitted with Jupiter design mini-scleral gas-permeable contact lenses. Results. All three patients achieved excellent vision and comfort. The contact lenses were tolerated well, and no complications were observed. Conclusions. Mini-scleral gas-permeable contact lenses provide a good option for patients who require gas-permeable contact lenses for optimal visual function but do not tolerate corneal contact lenses. Mini-scleral lenses are also an excellent therapeutic tool in the treatment of at least some forms of severe dry eyes. © 2007 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
