Hard To Fit Contacts FAQs
To achieve, general health and wellness you can leave no stone unturned. Therefore, eye care should be a part of anyone’s health plan. Our eye doctor in Somerset at Franklin Family Eye Care is trained and experienced in providing comprehensive eye care including matters relating to contact lenses. For hard to fit contact lenses we encounter some frequently asked questions. These questions and their answers are explored below.
What does 'Hard to Fit' mean?
Finding suitable contact lenses for your eyes can be challenging if you are suffering from certain conditions. Conditions such as dry eyes, presbyopia, astigmatism, keratoconus, giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC), and post-refractive surgery (LASIK) can complicate contact lens fitting thus making your eyes “hard to fit”. You can find out what options are available by consulting our Somerset optometrist.
The symptoms exhibited by the above conditions can be eased through the fitting of certain contact lenses, making it more comfortable to wear contacts. They include toric contact lenses, hybrid contact lenses, piggybacking contact lenses, soft contact lenses for keratoconus, and scleral contact lenses.
How Can An Optometrist Fit You For Comfortable Contact Lenses?
There exist special types of contact lenses that are suitable for specific eye conditions. Our eye doctor in Somerset will go over the options available at your first appointment. The contact lenses that will be selected will be the most comfortable, based on your unique situation.
What Process is followed in the Contact Lens Exam?
The first step is scheduling an appointment with our optometrist for a contact lens exam. Our optometrist to determine suitable contacts for you will use any prevailing eye conditions, prevailing eye infections, previous vision surgeries and the results of the contact lens exam. The unique nature of each patient’s eyes will also be put into consideration. This ensures the contacts you are fitted with are comfortable for you and your eyes.
Our eye care clinic is open if you still aren’t comfortable and require a refitting for other contacts. The types of contacts available vary depending on certain eye conditions as well as lifestyle. They may come in gas permeable, extended wear, and disposables.
Our eye doctor in Somerset recommends yearly eye exams to monitor any new eye conditions or vision changes. New contacts will need to be fitted in the event of any vision changes.
