About Visser Contact Lenses
Visser Contact Lenses is a prominent scleral contact lens authority with 25 locations primarily in hospital ophthalmology clinics in the Netherlands. This family-run optometry business was founded by internationally recognized scleral lens researcher, Rients Visser, Sr. and is run by his daughter, Esther-Simone Visser, and his son, Rients Visser. Patients come from across Europe to the scleral lens clinic.
The Scleral Lens
In 2010, Rients Visser, Sr. designed a full scleral lens which featured a bi-tangential periphery and linear landing zones. Case studies and results were published in Optometry and Vision Science in 2013: Medical Applications and Outcomes of BiTangential Scleral Lenses. The lens was the subject of PhD thesis of Esther-Simon Visser entitled, “Objective and Subjective Performance of Scleral Lenses and New Advances in Scleral Lens Technologies.”
As a result of modern production techniques and Simone Visser and her team’s continued development of her father’s fitting method for scleral lenses, the lens is successfully used to treat various eye conditions. The result is that the wearers enjoy improved vision, improved comfort and relief from dry eyes.
