How Do Specialty Contacts Work? Do They Help With Dry Eyes?
Unlike conventional contact lenses that are designed for the average consumer to provide a reasonable fit over the eye, specialty contact lenses invest a customized solution based on various lens trials, digital retinal imaging, and how your eye will relate to the given treatment.
Those with keratoconus or an irregular cornea understand that their eyes have a different shape that the average contact lens won’t adhere to, plus, their eyes may change periodically as well. Therefore, years ago, hard contact lenses were the only prescribed treatment to hold the cornea in place and provide clear vision. For patients with drye eyes, Sclerals or soft daily contacts are the ideal choice.
Today, however, a number of alternatives are available:
- Hybrid Lenses
- Scleral Lenses
- Custom Lenses
- …and more!
