What Are Custom Contact Lenses?
Also known as "hard-to-fit contacts," these lenses are designed specifically for the patient's eyes. Custom contact lenses are a specialized type of prescription lens, which can be used to treat vision problems such as astigmatism and presbyopia, conditions that cause blurred or distorted vision. Custom contacts also allow us to prescribe a wider range of prescriptions than is possible with traditional contact lenses.
Why Choose Custom Contact Lenses?
Some people need hard-to-fit contacts due to certain eye conditions, while others may need them because they have an unusually shaped eye or a more complex prescription. In either case, custom contact lenses can be beneficial to the patient's vision and comfort level. Custom contacts are often much more comfortable than traditional lenses and provide clearer, sharper vision with less distortion.
Types of custom contact lenses include:
- Scleral Lenses: These lenses are larger in diameter than regular contacts, and they provide a customized fit for each patient. They also offer hydration and protection for the eye.
- Soft Toric Lenses: These lenses are designed to correct astigmatism and come in a variety of colors.
- Gas-Permeable Lenses: These lenses are highly breathable and provide a rigid, yet comfortable fit.
At Saline Optometry and Chelsea Eyeglass Co., we provide a comprehensive eye exam and assessment to ensure that you get the custom contact lenses that are best suited for your vision needs.
What Can I Expect When Wearing Custom Contact Lenses?
When wearing custom contact lenses, patients should expect to experience improved vision clarity, comfort, and a better fit overall. It may take some time to adjust to the new lenses, but once you do, you will be able to enjoy clear and accurate vision without any blurriness or distortion. Patients should also be aware that these contacts require extra care to maintain their quality and effectiveness.
