A successful adaptation to scleral contact lenses was feasible on most patients, with relief of symptoms and better visual acuity, probably due to regularization of the surface. Scleral contact lenses represent an important and accessible alternative to reduce the limitations inferred by the damages from Stevens-Johnson syndrome.
