There are many patients that have conditions that require custom contact lenses to see well. Some of the conditions include keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, complications after refractive surgery and trauma. For many of these patients, specialty contact lenses are last option before having to undergo extensive surgical intervention. The doctors at Compton Eye Associates specialize in these types of contact lenses.
There are many methods of fitting a contact lens on an irregular eye. Those methods include rigid gas permeable lenses, scleral lenses, piggybacking, specialty soft lenses and hybrid lenses. When patients are unable to adapt to one method for any particular reason, they can be offered other modalities. Each design has its own advantages and disadvantages. The great thing about these lens options is that they are fully customizable and can be tailored to almost any patient. Here at Compton Eye Associates we will evaluate your eye to see which design will work best for you.
