Every patient is different and so are their eyes. This means that there need to be different types of contact lenses to suit each individual. Some patients have corneal abnormalities which mean that conventional lenses won’t sit comfortably on the surface of their eyes, while others suffer from eye conditions that mean normal contact lenses won’t be comfortable or could irritate their eyes.
Keratoconus is a progressive disease of the cornea in which the cornea bulges out like a cone and becomes thinner over time. Patients with keratoconus usually will not be able to obtain 20/20 vision through their glasses and will experience more blurry and distorted vision over time.
Orthokeratology is also known as corneal refractive therapy (CRT) or overnight vision correction. Kids who are nearsighted are the ideal candidates. Gas permeable rigid (hard) contact lenses are worn overnight to reshape the surface of the cornea.
We truly believe in routine eye examinations so that you can see as clearly as possible.
Once you have to get glasses or contacts, it is even more important to watch the health of your eyes.
