ARE YOUR CONTACTS UNCOMFORTABLE?
If you rely on correctional lenses to see, you may not want to wear glasses all the time. You may prefer to show your eyes off, or perhaps want to free your face of glasses for certain occasions. This is where contact lenses come in. They allow you to see without having to wear glasses. However, some people find contact lenses to be uncomfortable or have problems seeing, even with the lenses in place. Specialty and custom contacts can help to correct these issues. Here at Tropical Eye Associates, we want you to understand how specialty and custom contacts can help you.
WHAT ARE SPECIALTY AND CUSTOM CONTACTS?
Most contacts are off-the-shelf contacts. They come in the most popular sizes and lens strengths. However, sometimes patients need a wider or smaller lens, or one that is more powerful. Specialty and custom contact lenses come in extended spherical powers to help ensure the lens fits the eye correctly. These lenses also include extending range lenses, helping those who need a stronger lens to see better.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM SPECIALTY AND CUSTOM CONTACTS?
If you have worn contact lenses and have felt the lens was uncomfortable, itchy or didn’t fit your eye correctly, specialty and custom lenses may benefit you. Those who have significant astigmatism, aphakia, degenerative myopia, keratoconus or have steep or flat corneas benefit from specialty or custom contacts.
HOW DOES AN EYE DOCTOR FIT FOR SPECIALTY AND CUSTOM CONTACTS?
An eye doctor can take measurements of your eye to determine what size lenses you need. They can take into account the shape of the corneas as well, to ensure the lens curves in all the areas your cornea naturally does for the best fit.
