Consult...: You have to ask your Ophthalmologist about this. I would not wear them unless they tell you it is ok to do so after a full check up.

Corneal scar: You usually can wear soft contact lens if there is a corneal scar,especially if old . There are certain conditions causing corneal scars which might cause not to wear lenses. Example herpetic infection.
