It is not uncommon for patients to have difficulty wearing contact lenses for a number of reasons. Due to the individual eye shape, certain conditions, or certain eye surgeries, some patients are considered to be “hard to fit” as contact lens wearers.
You may be considered a hard to fit contact lens candidate if you have one of the following conditions:
- Dry Eyes
- Post-LASIK or other refractive surgery
- Post injury
- Complex prescriptions
- Corneal Scarring
There are options available for those “hard to fit” patients. Hybrid contact lenses are the newest innovation in specialty contact lenses. These high-performance contact lenses use advanced technology to combine the clarity of a hard contact lens with the comfort of a soft contact lens. The rigid center of the lens provides crisp vision that is not dependent on the position of the lens, so your vision is constantly clear. The soft skirt provides the comfort of a soft contact lens while ensuring plenty of oxygen to keep your eyes healthy.
These hybrid contact lenses are available for virtually any prescription, including astigmatism and multifocal lenses. Click the link below to learn more about these contact lenses or give us a call at (573) 642-6800.
