Enhanced Options for Contact Lenses

Contact lenses can do more than just replace glasses. Thanks to innovations in research and equipment, we can now customize contact lenses to meet more patients’ unique needs. 

For example, your child may benefit from specialty contact lenses that can help manage myopia progression. Or if you’re dealing with dry eyes, a scleral lens might be the solution to improve your eye comfort. 

Our eye 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). 

We use corneal topography to help accurately and thoroughly evaluate the cornea (the front surface of the eye). Likewise, ASI allows us to capture detailed images and video of the eye system to ensure accurate measurements when fitting your contact lenses.

Specialty Lenses Available at Foresee Eyecare

Specialty contact lenses can be customized to your unique vision needs. So whether you have an eye condition, like keratoconus or dry eye, or you simply prefer the way specialty lenses perform, we can help.

That’s why it’s important to start with a contact lens exam to find the right fit for your lenses. We want you to feel comfortable when you put them in and after a full day of wear.

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.

RGP lenses can be a suitable 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.
