If you need corrective eyewear, you may choose to wear contacts. Contacts are a great option for those who don’t want to deal with eyeglasses or want a more natural look. However, not everyone can wear traditional contacts. Certain eye and vision conditions require specialty contact lenses. At Saline Optometry and Chelsea Eyeglass Co. in Saline and Chelsea, MI, we provide specialty lenses for those who are hard to fit for contacts. We also offer a variety of eye and vision care services and an extensive range of eyewear frames. If you need special contacts, our optometrist will fit you for them and provide the right lenses.
What Are Hard to Fit Contacts?
A typical contact lens is designed to follow the standard curve of a regularly shaped and sized eyeball. However, some individuals don’t have the typical eyeball shape or size suited for regular contact lenses. Several conditions can cause the eyeball to have or develop an irregular shape, including presbyopia, astigmatism, keratoconus, and more. Certain types of eye surgeries, dry eye syndrome, or conjunctivitis can also result in issues wearing regular contact lenses.
If regular contact lenses do not work for you, there are some options available for you. Through the use of hard to fit contacts, we can help you get contact lenses that are comfortable and effective. As a first step, we need to perform an eye exam. Our optometrist will perform a comprehensive eye inspection to determine if you need hard to fit contacts. As a next step, we will perform a specialized fitting session to determine the right type and specifications of hard to fit contact lenses for your needs.
Types of Specialty Lenses
There are different types of contact lenses in the hard to fit the category. Some common hard to fit contacts include rigid gas permeable contact lenses, toric contact lenses, soft contact lenses, hybrid contact lenses, scleral contact lenses, Ortho-k lenses, and more. All of these lenses work with different eye conditions and allow you to see clearly. Our experts will determine which lenses are right for you and your condition.
