What Are Specialty Contact Lenses?

Specialty contact lenses are specifically designed to cater to eye conditions that might not be properly addressed using traditional contact lenses. They can help correct vision and provide comfort for people who live with eye conditions like:

Types of Specialty Contact Lenses

We offer comprehensive eye exams and contact lens fittings that can help you find the specialty contact lenses right for your needs.

During a contact lens exam and fitting, we’ll assess your eyes for any vision problems and measure the corneal curvature of your eyes in order to determine what type of lenses might be suitable for you. 

Once we determine which type of lens may suit you, we’ll take additional measurements so the lenses provide you with comfort and clarity.

Scleral Lenses

Contact lenses for keratoconus and dry eye are typically known as scleral lenses. Scleral lenses are large-diameter lenses that cover a significant portion of the sclera, or the white part of the eye. 

The size of these lenses allows them to “vault” over the cornea, offering comfort and clarity for those struggling with corneal conditions and dry eye.

Amniotic Membrane for Dry Eye

Amniotic membranes are a biological approach for treating moderate to severe dry eyes. 

Amniotic membranes are made of placental and stem cell materials. These can then be placed on the eye for a certain period, which helps to repair damaged ocular surfaces and provide relief from dry eye symptoms.

Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Lenses

RGP lenses are made from a firm plastic material that’s designed to allow oxygen to pass through to the eye. 

These lenses offer clear, sharp vision and can be especially effective for patients with astigmatism or high refractive errors. RGP lenses are also known to be durable and long-lasting.

Toric Lenses for Astigmatism

Toric lenses are designed to address the irregular curvature of the cornea caused by astigmatism. These lenses have an irregular shape personalized to help them stay oriented on your eye.

They’re popular for providing clear and sharp vision to people with mild to moderate astigmatism.

Multifocal Lenses for Presbyopia

Multifocal lenses can help correct presbyopia, a common age-related vision issue that makes it difficult to see clearly at different distances. 

These lenses offer multiple prescription strengths in one lens, allowing wearers to have clear vision at near, intermediate, and far distances without needing multiple pairs of contacts or glasses.
