Who Needs Specialty Contact Lenses?

Specialty contact lenses are recommended when traditional contact lenses do not provide the vision correction and comfort a patient requires. 

Traditional soft contact lenses are not designed for each patient’s unique vision problems. Many people wear specialty contact lenses because they are designed specifically for contact lens wearers with eye diseases, irregularities, conditions, and corneal transplants.

What Are Specialty Contact Lenses?

Specialty contact lenses are different from traditional contact lenses because they are designed and customized to meet the specific needs of your eyes. 

Specialty contact lenses are generally recommended for patients who have impaired vision as well as an eye condition or disease. This can cause standard contact lenses to be uncomfortable or fit improperly.

Determining What Specialty Contact Lens You Need

The Alabama eye doctors at each of the EyeCare Associates locations are an expert in custom contact lens fittings. 

In addition to a comprehensive eye exam to evaluate your overall eye health, your eye doctor will also perform a contact lens evaluation. This lets us determine the exact measurements of your eyes. This can be done multiple ways: 

  • Measuring the curvature of your cornea with a keratometer

  • Creating a map of your eye with a corneal topographer and measuring how the light reflects off your eye

  • Using a card or ruler to measure the size of your pupils and the diameter of your iris

Since contact lenses sit on the cornea of the eye, it’s extremely important for them to fit properly and comfortably. Improperly fitting contact lenses may damage the eye, putting you at a higher risk of developing a potentially harmful eye condition. 

Trust the experienced eye doctors at EyeCare Associates to help you choose the best contact lens type based on your unique eye shape, eye health, and lifestyle.
