What Are Specialty Contact Lenses?

Specialty contact lenses are different from the standard soft lenses that are commonly prescribed. These lenses include rigid gas-permeable (RGP) contacts, scleral lenses, and ortho-k options. If you're considering a specialty lens, or you aren't sure if you can wear contacts due to an eye condition, working with your eye doctor is the right choice. You'll need to learn about the different lenses available to you so you can make an informed decision when talking to your eye care professional.

What Do These Lenses Treat?

Specialty contact lenses treat many different conditions. For example, ortho-k lenses can be worn at night and taken out in the morning, helping re-shape your cornea temporarily and giving you clear vision during the day. RGP lenses are often used for people with astigmatism, and scleral lenses work well for people with keratoconus or other corneal irregularities. These lenses can also help with dry eye since they don't sit on the cornea, and instead rest on the sclera, which is the white part of the eye.

How Can an Optometrist Help?

An optometrist can help by giving you an eye exam and a contact lens exam to make sure your eyes are healthy and look for any irregularities or concerns. Then you can find out your options for specialty contacts, and what your eye doctor recommends. You may have options to consider, and each one will have its own benefits and drawbacks. The best choice is the one that will protect your eyes and help you see clearly for as long as possible.
