What Are Hard-to-Fit Contact Lenses?
If you have astigmatism, keratoconus, or other corneal irregularities, your contact lenses might be considered "hard to fit." These conditions can make it difficult for traditional contacts to stay in place and provide the clear vision you need. But don't worry – our eye doctor can help! At Jackson Eye, we offer a variety of custom contact lens options that are designed to provide a comfortable, stable fit. We will work with you to find the perfect lenses for your individual needs.
Common Hard-to-Fit Custom Contacts
There are various types of custom contact lenses available to patients with "hard to fit" conditions. The best option for you will depend on the severity of your condition and your individual needs.
Some of the most common types of hard-to-fit custom contacts include:
- Toric lenses: Toric lenses are designed to correct astigmatism. They are made with two different curvatures that allow them to stay in place and provide clear vision.
- Gas-permeable lenses: Gas-permeable lenses are made of a rigid material that helps them keep their shape. They are a good option for patients with keratoconus or other corneal irregularities.
- Scleral lenses: Scleral lenses are large-diameter lenses that cover the entire cornea. They are a good option for patients with severe corneal irregularities or poor vision.
What Are the Benefits of Hard-to-Fit Contact Lenses?
There are many benefits to wearing hard-to-fit contact lenses. First and foremost, they can help improve your vision. If you have astigmatism, keratoconus, or other corneal irregularities, traditional contacts might not provide the clear vision you need. In addition to improving your vision, hard-to-fit contacts can help protect your eyes from further damage, and they can provide a more comfortable and stable fit.
