Different Contact Lenses Available for Hard-to-Fit Patients

October 26, 2020

Our eyes are as unique as we are. Just as no two people are the same, no two sets of eyes are the same. That’s why when it comes to contact lenses, a one-size-fits-all philosophy doesn’t always apply.

The good news is that there are specialized lenses available to adjust to irregular eye shapes, eye conditions, and challenging prescriptions. Using advanced diagnostic tools, the warm and friendly team at the office of Omni Eye & Vision (Burnaby) will help you find comfortable lenses that address your specific eye needs. We will go over options on types of contact lenses that will be most comfortable for you, based upon the eye condition you may have.

A closer look:

A variety of eye conditions can make it hard to wear standard contacts. Some of the most common include:

  • Keratoconus: when the cornea thins and then bulges outwards in the shape of a cone
  • Dry eyes: burning, red and irritated eyes
  • Astigmatism: blurry vision because of an irregular cornea
  • Corneal scarring; post-corneal transplant
  • Post-LASIK, or other refractive procedures

Committed to good vision

Fortunately, contacts come in a vast range of types – even for the most complex, hard-to-fit eyes. At the office of Omni Eye & Vision (Burnaby), our skilled team has years of professional experience and is highly qualified in prescribing the best contact lenses for you. If you have not experienced success with contacts or you’ve been told in the past that they are not an option to correct your vision, we invite you to visit our office for a comprehensive eye exam and fitting.
