Why are some lenses difficult to fit?

Like fingerprints, your eyeballs have their own shape and irregularities which can make contact wear challenging.

Certain conditions, such as keratoconus, changes to eye shape following surgery, or dry eye, can also require special lenses and personalized care.

No matter what the cause, we will work with you or your child to map the eye and design a solution that restores sharp, comfortable vision.

Talk to us about specialty contact lens options such as scleral lenses for keratoconus (see below) or orthokeratology to improve daytime vision and protect your child from progressing myopia.

Keratoconus and scleral lenses

A progressive eye disease, keratoconus occurs when the normally round cornea thins and bulges into a cone-like shape.

The irregular shape of the cornea causes light to deflect as it enters the eye, leading to distorted vision.

Scleral contact lenses may help in this situation.

Scleral contacts are large-diameter gas permeable contact lenses that cover the entire corneal surface and rest on the “white” of the eye (sclera).

In this way, scleral lenses functionally replace the irregular cornea with a smooth optical surface to correct vision problems caused by keratoconus and other corneal irregularities. Make an appointment to learn more.
