There are many reasons a person might need specialty contacts. If you're in the Burbank or Addison area and are interested in specialty contact lenses, our team at Eye Care Center Limited can help. Working with the right eye doctor can ensure you get the information and support you need for better vision and improved eye health. Our optometrists can help you choose the specialty contact lenses that are right for your unique needs.
These contact lenses are used to gently reshape the cornea while you sleep. They're put in place before bedtime and removed when you wake up. Since they work to reshape your cornea while you wear them, you'll experience clearer vision when you take them out in the morning. If you continue to wear Ortho-K lenses as directed, you'll be able to maintain your improved vision and not need to wear contact lenses or glasses while you're awake.
RGP or rigid gas permeable contact lenses are also sometimes called hard lenses instead of standard soft contact lenses. They're often used for people who need significant vision correction and those who aren't good candidates for soft contact lenses. RGP contacts are breathable, and they're also custom-fit to your eye and prescription needs. That gives them an advantage over soft lenses. The vision quality you'll get with RGP contacts is superior, and there's the potential to slow myopia progression with them, too.
These large-diameter gas permeable lenses are designed for people with irregular corneas or other issues that make wearing standard contact lenses too difficult. Scleral contacts are large enough to rest their edges on the sclera, which is the white part of the eye. By doing that, they cover the entire cornea and provide a smooth surface and improved vision. They can also act as a reservoir for fluid, which helps people with dry eyes wear them. With scleral contacts, there are more options to avoid glasses.
