Contact lenses are not one-size-fits-all for patients needing corrective lenses but who do not want to wear eyeglasses. Eyes come in all shapes and sizes, with varying visual conditions. Because of this, it can be challenging to fit contact lenses on some patients more than others. Seeing an optometrist for a contact lens fitting can help you find the best contacts for your vision needs. The eye doctors at Arvada Optometric Center in Arvada, CO, are dedicated to helping our patients find the specialty contact lenses needed for clear vision and comfort.
Hard-to-Fit Contacts for Vision Conditions
Many people with ocular conditions need help finding the best-fitting contact lens for their vision correction and condition needs. People requiring hard-to-fit contacts may experience the best results from newer brands and styles of contact lenses. Common conditions treated with hard-to-fit contacts may include keratoconus, corneal scarring, dry eye syndrome, pellucid marginal degeneration, and post-LASIK or other refractive surgical procedures. People with presbyopia and astigmatism can also find visual clarity when wearing contact lenses.
Types of Specialty Contacts
Patients can wear several different types of specialty contact lenses to help treat various ocular conditions. Some standard specialty contact lenses may include toric lenses for astigmatism, rigid gas-permeable lenses, and scleral lenses. Other hard-to-fit contacts may consist of giant papillary conjunctivitis, Ortho-K, and hybrid lenses.
Do I Need a Contact Lens Eye Exam?
A contact lens exam is needed if you are considering getting contact lenses for the first time to help treat ocular conditions. During this exam, the optometrist will conduct a comprehensive eye exam and additional testing to ensure you can comfortably wear contact lenses. Additionally, you will have a contact lens fitting to try out the contacts your eye doctor feels will be the best option for your vision correction and condition needs.
