Specialty Contact Lenses Specialist
For men and women who have chronic eye conditions like dry eyes or astigmatism, wearing contacts isn’t generally an option. With the help of the team at Limberg Eye Surgery and their expertise in specialty contact lenses, you can get the contacts you need, even if you previously weren’t a suitable candidate for contacts. To find out how the Limberg Eye Surgery optometry team can help you, schedule an evaluation online or over the phone.
Why are contacts hard to wear?
Contact lenses are tiny flexible prescription lenses that rest comfortably over your eye. As long as your eyes are generally healthy, contact lenses can be the most comfortable way to correct your vision.
In some cases, men and women are told they aren’t ideal candidates for contact lenses, or they get contacts only to find out that they’re unbearably uncomfortable. The following conditions might require you to get fitted for specialty contact lenses.
Even if you have presbyopia, giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC), or another chronic eye condition, you have plenty of options available at Limberg Eye Surgery for specialty contact lenses.
What are specialty contact lenses?
What's it like to get specialty contacts?
Wearing specialty contacts or hard-to-fit lenses should feel natural and comfortable. The team at Limberg Eye Surgery perform a comprehensive vision and contact lens exam to determine which eye condition is affecting you and which type of specialty contact lens might be best.
They may perform a corneal topography, which is a computer-assisted tool that maps out the surface of your cornea. This helps custom design contacts for each of your eyes and is often an essential design technique for astigmatism.
You may also benefit from orthokeratology (ortho-k). This non-surgical procedure involves wearing specially designed rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses to gently reshape the curvature of your eyes. Over time, ortho-k can improve your vision.
If you need specialty contact lenses, schedule a visit at Limberg Eye Surgery. Book your evaluation through the online scheduler or call the office.
