Specialty Contact Lenses
Our specialty clinic utilizes advanced scleral contact lens options for corneal pathologies.
Specialty Contact Lens Clinic
Specialty contact lenses are essential for visual rehabilitation for patients with corneal ectasias such as keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, corneal grafts, post-LASIK ectasias, trauma, and other advanced pathology. We offer specialty contact lenses not only for adults but also for children who have congenital eye conditions or trauma.
Did you know scleral lenses can help improve your vision as well as manage dry eyes? These lenses vault the cornea and help provide a lubrication chamber for the eyes. These lenses are comfortable and reduce glare and halos which is a common problem with keratoconus. If you are interested in learning more about the lens option, call us today for a scleral lens consult at 905-363-1140.
