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.

Specialty Contact Lens Fittings From The EyeDoctors Optometrists

The doctors at The EyeDoctors Optometrists provide high-quality eye care and specialize in identifying, diagnosing, and treating eye diseases and conditions. They are also experts in customizing contact lenses for vision correction. If your sight is impaired, our team works with you to determine the best lens type based on your eye shape, eye health, and lifestyle.

Determining What Specialty Contact Lens You Need

The doctors at The EyeDoctors Optometrists are experts in custom contact lens fittings. In addition to a comprehensive eye exam to determine your eye health, your eye doctor will also perform a contact lens evaluation to determine the exact measurements of your eyes and may use:

  • A keratometer to measure the curvature of your cornea 

  • A corneal topographer to create a map of your eye and measures how the light reflects off your eye

  • 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. Trust the expertise and experience of the doctors at The EyeDoctors Optometrists to help you choose the best contact lens type based on your unique eye shape, eye health, and lifestyle.
