Conditions We Fit For
We have helped people with all types of prescriptions and eye conditions find their perfect lenses. Here are just a few of the conditions we can help with:
- Dry eye disease
- Post-keratoplasty (corneal transplantation)
- Pellucid marginal degeneration
- Scarred corneas
- Irregular irises
- High prescriptions
- Light-sensitive eyes
For people with irregular corneas, it can be hard to find contact lenses. Scleral lenses are rigid gas-permeable lenses that vault over the cornea and rest on the whites of the eyes (the sclera), rather than sitting on the cornea as contact lenses normally do.
Keratoconus, or cone-shaped corneas, can make it difficult to wear contact lenses, owing to the irregular shape of the cornea. Fortunately, scleral lenses vault over these irregularities making them a great option for those with this condition.
People who have had laser eye surgery or who have dry eyes may also benefit from scleral lenses. Scleral lenses have a larger surface area than regular contact lenses, creating a hydrating fluid reservoir that keeps dry eyes moist.
Multifocal Contact Lenses
A multifocal prescription used to make contact lens wear impossible. Now, multifocal contact lenses are readily available, containing multiple prescription powers for people who need vision correction at multiple distances.
Contact lenses come in bifocals, with 2 powers per lens, or multifocals, with several powers per lens, just like a pair of progressive eyeglasses.
For patients with presbyopia, an age-related refractive error, multifocal lenses can help them access the convenience of contact lenses.
