Specialty Contact Lenses

Contact lenses can correct a wide range of vision problems, including astigmatism, nearsightedness, farsightedness and presbyopia (near focusing problems that occur with age). Are you considering contact lenses for the very first time, or looking to improve the comfort or vision of your current lenses?  Have you wanted contacts in the past but were unable to wear them or told you are not a candidate because your prescription was “too high,” your eyes were too dry, you needed bifocals, or you have astigmatism?   We offer specialty lenses that can used on any patient, but are especially useful for patients who have decreased vision due to corneal diseases such as keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, corneal scars or patients with very high levels of astigmatism.

WHAT IS A

SPECIALTY CONTACT LENS?

  • A specialty contact lens is a custom designed lens used to provide the sharpest and clearest vision for patients for whom standard soft contact lenses do not work well for.

  • These lenses are intended to correct for corneal irregularities and extremely high prescriptions, but also can be fit onto a healthy, “normal” eye.
