Today’s contact lenses are more comfortable, and healthier than ever before. Options exist for wearing contact lenses on a daily basis (for those that travel, or want the convenience of a fresh clean lens every time to avoid the hassles of a daily cleaning regimen) monthly basis, or even for wearing 30 days consecutively. Additionally contact lenses can be ordered in a variety of colors for those that just want a new look, or to cosmetically cover an iris defect.
They can be prescribed for people that are:
- Have astigmatism,
- Or those needing a reading prescription - presbyopia
In the past few years, scleral gas permeable (GP) contact lenses have become an integral part of the specialty contact lens practice. Uses of scleral lenses have expanded from the irregular cornea patient to many other uses, including patients with dry eye and other ocular surface conditions.
Scleral lenses provide a liquid reservoir that functions to help correct corneal irregularities and also to provide relief and healing of the ocular surface.
