Contact Lenses for Hard to Fit Eyes
Have you had your vision checked in the past only to be told that you weren’t a good candidate for contact lenses? Or maybe your previous optometrist tried to find a suitable pair of contact lenses to help correct your refractive error, only to find that they didn’t quite fit comfortably in your eyes. While you may have been told that contacts weren’t an option in the past, the reality of the situation may simply be that you have hard to fit eyes.
Do You Have Hard to Fit Eyes?
There are a few different eye conditions that can make finding the right contact lenses to sit comfortably in your eyes a bit more challenging. These common conditions include:
- Dry Eyes
- Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis or GPC
- and Post-Refractive Surgery Complications (such as LASIK)
Finding the Right Contact Lenses for Your Eyes
If you have been told or you suspect that you have any of these eye conditions, contacts may still be a vision correction option that you can enjoy. Our Boise eye doctor specializes in contact lenses and is happy to welcome patients with hard to fit eyes. In fact, through the use of specialized equipment, our optometrist can get precise measurements of the cornea to ensure the best fit possible during your exam. Additionally, a thorough knowledge of current contact lens technology and access to the most advanced lens options available helps our team to recommend the right pair of contacts for your specific needs.
Depending on your eye condition, we may recommend one or more different contact lens options that can work to fit your eye comfortably. For example, patients with keratoconus may benefit from gas permeable lenses, scleral contact lenses or hybrid contact lenses. If you have astigmatism, toric contact lenses or hybrid lenses may work well to balance out your condition.
