Contact Lens Solutions for Many Eye Conditions are Available
If you have one of the following conditions, you are likely in a situation where it can be difficult to fit contacts comfortably:
- Dry eyes
- Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis (GPC)
The main issue with these conditions is a misshapen cornea that can make it difficult to fit contacts that will be comfortable for you. With advancements in various types of lenses, such as gas permeable, there are more options than ever for people who suffer from these conditions but would still prefer contacts over glasses. Our team is highly trained in hard to fit contacts and understands that both clear vision and comfort are important when fitting our patients for contacts.
If you suffer from Keratoconus or GPC, two conditions that cause a build-up of protein on your lenses, gas permeable lenses are an effective solution. For patients with Presbyopia multifocal lenses can work well and allow them to see both near and far objects. For a long time, patients with astigmatism had no option but to wear eyeglasses to correct their vision. Now with the continued development of toric lenses, they are able to have contact lenses as an option.
Medicated eye drops can help to relieve dry eyes, even when lenses are worn; additionally, soft contact lenses allow more moisture to protect the eye and reduce the risk of infection and redness. Whatever your condition may be, the team at Richardson Eye Associates will conduct a full contact lens examination and fit to determine your best option.
