What are Specialty Contact Lenses?
Specialty contact lenses are designed for people who can’t wear standard soft lenses comfortably. It’s important that you receive a comprehensive eye exam to determine whether you have corneal irregularities, which could make you a candidate for these lenses. Our eye doctor can perform a contact lens exam along with a standard eye health and vision exam to determine which lenses are most suited for you.
Which Eye Conditions Require These Lenses?
If you have astigmatism, for example, you may need specialty contact lenses. This refractive error occurs when the cornea is irregularly shaped. Due to this, soft lenses may not properly fit on your cornea properly and can lead to too much movement when you blink. You may also need specialty contact lenses if you have keratoconus, which causes your cornea to become thin and bulge out like a cone. In addition, our optometrist may also recommend these lenses for patients who have presbyopia or dry eye syndrome.
How Can Our Optometrist Help?
When you visit us, our optometrist will perform an eye exam to learn more about your eye health. Afterward, we can determine if specialty contact lenses are suitable for your condition. Most people can wear some type of contacts, which may include Ortho-K lenses, rigid gas-permeable lenses, or scleral lenses. Once we decide on the lenses that will fit you best, we can also assist you with the insertion and removal process.
