Contact Lenses for Dry Eyes and Hard to Fit Contacts
Regardless of why you prefer wearing contact lenses, having the proper fit is important. Proper fit with contacts isn't acceptable at 90% or even 95%. They need to fit with 100% precision. If you live in Perdido Key, FL, Pensacola, FL, Lillian, AL, or Elberta, AL, the top-notch optometrist at Dr. C Vision Care can help. Visit us to get contact lenses for dry eyes.
Why a Proper Fit Matters
Without a proper fit, contact lenses can damage your eyes, resulting in abrasions of the cornea. This is a painful condition that makes moving your eyes in any manner or even blinking painful. If you've been told you are hard to fit when it comes to contacts, it simply means you can't wear typical contacts and may need some type of treatment in advance.
Here are just some of the reasons why you may have been told you're hard to fit for contact lenses:
- You suffer from a dry eye condition.
- You have astigmatism or giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC).
- You've had LASIK surgery in the past.
- You have corneal scarring.
Just because you have been told you need hard-to-fit contacts doesn't mean you'll be unable to wear contacts. It means you'll need an experienced optometrist to properly examine your eyes and assist you with finding the type of contact lenses that will work best for your particular condition. For example, if you have corneal scarring from a past surgery, you might benefit from gas permeable lenses.
How We Can Help
Dr. C Vision Care will go above and beyond to ensure you're able to get a comfortable fit with your contact lenses without them impacting your health.
Our experienced optometrist will accurately diagnose why you are considered hard to fit or verify the reason if you were diagnosed elsewhere. Once our eye doctor determines what your specific needs are, custom contact lenses will be ordered for you.
Keep in mind that when a patient is considered hard-to-fit for contact lenses, the process of creating special lenses is complicated and time-consuming. This will result in your contact lenses being more expensive than a typical pair. Some insurance providers will pay the entire cost regardless, while others might require you to pay out of pocket.
