Hard to Fit Contacts vs Regular Contacts

Reliable and friendly optometry services can be found at Eye Care Center Limited, where we are proud to serve the greater Addison and Burbank areas. If you have been told in the past that you have an eye condition that makes your eyes "hard to fit,” we can help. Our team has the experience and expertise to make every patient's contact lens experience one that is helpful and effective.

What Is the Difference Between Hard to Fit and Regular Contacts?

Patients who suffer from certain eye conditions require what is referred to as "hard to fit" contacts. This definition simply means that due to a condition such as presbyopia or keratoconus, the curvature of your eyeball may require a specially fit lens. In the past, there were many patients for whom contact lenses were not a viable option. This is no longer the case, and it is a rare situation when contact lenses are not an option for someone. We can help patients with the two aforementioned conditions as well as patients who have astigmatism or dry eye disease find the right contacts.

A comprehensive eye exam is the first step to determining which type of lens and what type of fit will best suit your needs. Following that exam, your eye doctor will review the available options with you as you make your choice. For patients without any of these conditions, the choice of which type of lens usually comes down to personal preference and comfort, a decision that our optometry team can help you with.
