There are now contact lenses available for almost everyone. New contacts are being introduced every year. Many of our patients who were unable to wear contacts in the past are finding great success with them now. Contact lenses, when used properly, are very convenient, and with the latest advancements in technology, are extremely comfortable.
Our optometrists provide patients with a comprehensive visual assessment leading to the most appropriate contact lens, based on the physiology of their eye, their lifestyle and their visual demands. Our goal is to provide each patient with a customized contact lens that is convenient and comfortable for maximum eye health.
Soft lenses come in a variety of types, depending on the wearers’ schedule. They range from daily disposables, bi-monthly and monthly lenses for extended wear schedules. We also fit toric soft contact lenses, which are lenses specifically designed to fit astigmatic or irregularly shaped corneas.
One modality of contact lenses that has made strides in design and usefulness is the bifocal soft lens, which has been greatly improved. In addition, cosmetic lenses that change eye color or sports performance are available.
Specialty Contact Lenses
These are custom-designed contacts that maximize vision and reduce symptoms such as eye pain, dry eye, blurry vision and light sensitivity in patients with distorted corneas. We prescribe these unique contact lenses for individuals with ocular and medical conditions such as keratoconus, dry eye syndrome, after refractive surgery and corneal transplants.
Several Treatment Options
A hybrid contact lens is composed of a gas-permeable lens in the center surrounded by a soft contact lens. The soft part of the lens improves comfort and helps the lens to center. The gas-permeable center maximizes vision. SynergEyes, Inc. is the only FDA-approved manufacturer of hybrid contact lenses for keratoconus. Its added new technology lens is designed to fit moderate to advanced keratoconus.
Scleral lenses require a very precise and skilled fitting. They are larger than standard gas-permeablesoft contact lenses and are designed to rest on the less sensitive white areas of the eye, the sclera. Scleral lenses mask irregularities of the cornea and can dramatically improve vision and help treat diseased corneas and extremely dry eyes.
Custom Gas Permeable Lenses:
Includes intralimbal, reverse geometry and mini-scleral designs. They are custom designed to manage corneal irregularity or high refractive error. Their smooth, glass-like surface maximizes visual acuity.
Tinted Therapeutic Lenses:
Are used for corneal scarring, opaque corneas or light sensitivity.
