How Contact Lenses Help

Contact lenses help correct refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), presbyopia, and astigmatism. 

Different specialty contacts can also help manage eye conditions like dry eye and keratoconus, allowing you to wear contact lenses comfortably. During your exam, we can review your lifestyle and preferences to determine what lenses are the best fit.

Your Contact Lens Fitting Process

Before prescribing your contact lenses, we conduct a thorough contact lens fitting process. During this process, our team performs various measurements and provides guidance on inserting, removing, and caring for your contacts. 

For specialty lenses, such as scleral contacts, we implement anterior segment OCT scans to capture details we can’t spot with the naked eye.

This attention to detail is all a part of our commitment to safe, precision-based fits to help match you with contact lenses for your specific needs.

 Modern Technology for Contact Lens Fittings

Anterior segment OCT (AS-OCT) provides detailed imaging of the anterior segment of the eye, allowing our team to assess the fit and interaction of contact lenses with your eyes. This technology enables precise measurements of parameters such as corneal clearance, limbal compression, and tear meniscus, providing crucial information for fitting specialty lenses. 

By utilizing AS-OCT during contact lens fittings, we aim to improve fitting success and enhance patient comfort.

Consistent eye exams are important to assist our team in discovering vision issues that may have gone unnoticed. 

Our Variety of Contact Lens Options

Contact lenses fall under 2 main categories: soft contact lenses and rigid gas-permeable (RGP). Under these main categories are specialty options that we use to correct various vision problems and eye issues.

Our experienced doctors are well-versed in fitting specialty contact lenses for irregular corneas and for corneal refractive therapy through ortho-k lenses. 

Irregular corneas can require more advanced contact lens types with the necessary custom designs to accommodate your specific visual needs. Our goal is to provide our patients with a variety of different options.

Scleral Contact Lenses

Scleral lenses are RGP lenses that sit on the sclera (white of your eyes), unlike traditional contacts that rest directly on your cornea.

Scleral contacts can be an excellent option for patients who have trouble wearing contacts due to eye conditions such as dry eye and keratoconus. These lenses vault over the cornea and allow for more space, providing extra breathability and comfort by creating a fluid reservoir between the lens and the eye to keep your eyes hydrated.

Orthokeratology, also known as ortho-k, uses rigid gas-permeable contact lenses that are worn overnight to mold a person’s cornea and help reduce their dependence on glasses and contact lenses throughout the day.

Ortho-k lenses can be a great option for children managing mild to moderate myopia. These lenses work by flattening the cornea, reducing the eye’s refractive power and slowing myopia progression. 

Ortho-k lenses are custom-made for each individual’s specific eye shape and prescription, helping to provide a comfortable fit and long-lasting benefits. Like all contact lenses, proper care and cleaning are crucial for maintaining good eye health and preventing infections.

Toric contact lenses correct astigmatism and are available in soft and RGP designs. Astigmatism occurs when the clear front surface of the eye, also known as the cornea or the lens inside the eye, is irregular or cylindrical in shape, making traditional contacts hard to fit.

Toric lenses contain multiple powers, one vertical and the other horizontal. The bottom of the lens is weighted, allowing the lenses to center on the eye correctly. Toric contacts require a precise fit, and our team can help during the fitting process.

Multifocal contact lenses merge multiple prescriptions to help correct vision issues such as presbyopia, hyperopia, and myopia. A bifocal lens features 2 different prescriptions in the same lens, a common solution for patients with blurry near and far vision. 

With multiple prescriptions in a single lens, you can comfortably cycle through activities such as reading or driving without switching your contacts.

Hybrid lenses feature an RGP center with softer edges made of hydrogel or silicone hydrogel materials. Hybrid lenses combine the comfort of soft contacts and the crisp vision of RGP lenses.

Hybrid lenses are also a good option for physical activity as they are larger with thin edges, making them less likely to fall out. New-generation hybrid lenses can also be a good option for patients with keratoconus.
