Enhanced Options for Contact Lenses

Contact lenses can act as more than a substitute for glasses. Thanks to innovations in research and equipment, your contact lenses can be customized to each patient’s needs.

Our doctors are extensively trained and qualified to fit specialty lenses and guide you through the entire process.

Finding the Right Fit

At Foresee Eyecare, we can tailor your contact lenses to your eye shape using corneal topography and anterior segment imaging (ASI). 

Corneal topography enables the most accurate and thorough evaluation of the cornea, which is extremely helpful for contact lens fitting. Likewise, ASI allows us to capture detailed images and video of the eye system to ensure accurate measurements when fitting your contact lenses. When you put your contact lenses in, we want you to feel comfortable wearing them.

Scleral Lenses

Scleral lenses are made-to-measure large-diameter rigid gas permeable lenses. These specialty contact lenses are ideal for patients with a corneal condition, like keratoconus. They are much larger than traditional contact lenses and cover your cornea while resting on the sclera, the white part of your eye.

Scleral lenses may also be more comfortable for patients dealing with severe dry eyes that impact their ability to wear regular contact lenses.

Orthokeratology (ortho-k) lenses offer corneal reshaping that allows young patients to be free of glasses and contact lenses during waking hours. The patient wears the ortho-K lenses overnight and doesn’t need to wear them during the day.

Ortho-k is a safe, non-surgical, and temporary alternative to glasses or contact lenses for kids and adults. They are also used to help control myopia progression in children.

Rigid gas permeable lenses (RGP) work well for many people with refractive errors. They are constructed from durable plastic materials that allow oxygen to pass through. They can be a terrific choice if you have dry eyes and want a lens you can wear overnight or for up to 30 days. Both scleral lenses and ortho-k lenses are RGPs lenses.

With RGP lenses, your vision will be clear and crisp, but the adjustment period may be longer than with soft contact lenses, as some people find these lenses less comfortable initially.
