Specialty Contact Lenses

Having certain eye conditions can make contact lens fitting and wearing challenging. At Bower Eye Care, we make it a priority to offer our hard-to-fit patients a variety of options leveraging the latest contact lens technology. We offer specialty contact lens fittings for those with more complex prescriptions or corneal irregularities/disease that cannot be corrected with soft contact lenses. The highly-skilled optometry team at Bower Eye Care uses advanced equipment to precisely measure your cornea to achieve the best contact lens fit possible.

Specialty Lenses For Hard-To-Fit Patients

If you have high astigmatism, keratoconus, or a corneal injury due to trauma, there are certain contact lens options that may be most suitable for you. Scleral lenses are rigid, large-diameter gas permeable contact lenses that are specially designed to vault over the entire corneal surface and rest on the ‘white’ part of the eye. Scleral lenses function by replacing the irregular cornea with a perfectly smooth optical surface to correct the vision problems caused by high astigmatism, keratoconus, and other corneal irregularities.

After performing a comprehensive eye exam your doctor will discuss your lifestyle and vision needs, take measurements of the cornea of your eye, and explain your options to ensure you are comfortable with your prescribed lens. We are committed to providing our patients with the most accurate and transparent insight into their condition so that they may make the most informed decisions regarding their eye health and vision correction.
