Why Choose Specialty Contacts?
Specialty contacts are our way of correcting visual errors while also addressing other conditions that make your eyes hard-to-fit. These conditions can include dry eyes, presbyopia, or corneal issues.
In some cases, specialty contact lenses can help provide clear, comfortable vision while you recover from procedures like LASIK eye surgery.
Types of Specialty Contact Lenses
The type of contact lens we recommend ultimately depends on what issues your eyes may have.
Before we can recommend a specialty lens, we’ll have to perform a comprehensive eye exam and contact lens fitting. With a corneal topographer and keratometer, we’ll take a look at your corneal health and the size and shape of your iris and pupil.
We’ll also examine your tear film to determine if your contact lenses may need to address dry eye symptoms. With all this information in hand, we can determine which type of contact lens may be right for you.
These lenses have a larger diameter than traditional contact lenses, helping them rest on the sclera (whites) of your eyes. The size allows the center of the lens to “vault” over your cornea, making the lens comfortable to wear if you have a corneal condition like keratoconus.
A tear reservoir also forms between the lens and the cornea, which could help address uncomfortable issues like dry eye.
Multifocal contact lenses have more than one prescription built into them to help correct vision errors at multiple distances.
We may prescribe a multifocal contact lens if you have presbyopia, a condition that makes it difficult for your eyes to focus at various distances. However, multifocals can also correct astigmatism or even help manage myopia development in children.
