What Are Specialty Contact Lenses?
Patients suffering from irregular astigmatism due to corneal trauma, Keratoconus, corneal transplantation, and post-surgical irregularity may be candidates for contact lenses that correct vision. Additionally, patients with high astigmatism or the need for reading glasses will benefit from our specialty contact lens services including multifocal lenses.
A few of the types of specialty lenses we offer include:
Corneal Gas Permeable Lenses
Cosmetic Contact Lens Options
- Prosthetic contact lenses: patients with cosmetic irregularities may benefit from a consultation for a contact lens to cover their irregular cornea.
- Custom Soft Contact lenses: treatment of high astigmatism or high far or nearsightedness
- Multifocal contact lens options: offer independence from reading glasses
The EyePrintPROTM is a unique, custom prosthetic scleral device indicated for keratoconus, irregular astigmatism, ocular surface disease, trauma, chemical burns, post-surgical corneas (including corneal transplants and post-LASIK ectasia), limbal stem cell deficiency, or simply those who desire better vision and comfort that are not attainable by standard contact lenses. These scleral contact lenses are made to match the exact contour of the eye using a special impression molding taken in the office. They enhance the quality of life for patients for whom other alternative solutions have failed. Our optometrists have special training and extensive experience with these special custom contacts.
