Types of Specialty Contact Lenses We Offer
Certain patients have unique eye shapes, diseases, or eye conditions that do not allow them to wear regular contact lenses comfortably. For example, patients who suffer from keratoconus, an eye shape disorder, need specially designed contact lenses to fit the irregular-shaped cornea.
At Summit Eyecare, we offer specialty contact lenses for most types of eye conditions. This includes scleral and hybrid contact lenses. Each patient at Sumer Eyecare gets individual attention for a customized treatment plan. It all starts with our comprehensive eye exam to determine the right type of specialty lenses for your eyes.
For irregularly shaped corneas, using scleral contact lenses are a great option. The soft material of scleral contact lenses allows for proper fitting of the lenses on the cornea. That’s why it’s essential to get the right size and shape of specialty contact lenses during your contact lens exam. Some of the common benefits of scleral contact lenses include better visual acuity, comfort, and corneal health. These lenses can also help delay or eliminate the need for surgical intervention for the eyes.
Hybrid contact lenses might also be a suitable option for your eyes. If you want visual sharpness of scleral contact lenses but do not like how they feel, you can opt for hybrid contact lenses available at Summit Eyecare. Hybrid contact lenses are a great option for patients suffering from corneal astigmatism, presbyopia, have trouble wearing toric lenses, and more.
Specialty contact lenses are not for everyone. However, you can visit us at Summit Eyecare to determine if you are a suitable candidate for specialty contact lenses.
