Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision - many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
Q: What does “Specialty Fit Contact Lenses” mean. Who would need these?
A specialty fit contact lens would be used on a patient who is unable to wear a soft contact lens. Specialty fit contacts are used to help patients with high degrees of correction, such as astigmatism. They are also used for patients who have irregular corneas (surface of the eye), such as keratoconus, Pellucid marginal degeneration, post-LASIK ectasia as well as other irregularities. In many cases, these lenses can provide enhanced vision beyond what patients are able to achieve in glasses. Read more about our contact lenses here.
