Contacts that hide a corneal scar, is that okay?

Possible: If a corneal scar is prominent, there are contacts that can minimize or hide the scar. Some are simply colored and are available pre made. Others have to be custom fabricated and include for bad looking eyes, a scleral shell made by an ocularist.
