Specialty Contact Lens Fitting
Have you have had trouble wearing contact lenses or have been told you’re not a good candidate for contacts, you simply may have eyes that are “hard to fit”? Don’t worry — this doesn’t mean you can’t wear contact lenses. Drs. Reto, Halscheid, Bakker and Foreman have special expertise in contact lens fitting and will welcome the opportunity to work with you to accomplish your visual needs.
Are Your Eyes Hard to Fit?
Any of the following conditions can make contact lens fitting and comfortable contact lens wear more challenging:
- Dry eyes
- Giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC)
- Post-refractive surgery (such as LASIK)
If you have (or suspect you have) any of these conditions and you want to wear contacts, visit an eye care professional who specializes in contact lenses and welcomes hard-to-fit patients. Contact lens specialists usually are more aware of the latest contact lens technology and options than a general eye doctor. Many also use advanced equipment that can measure your cornea more precisely to achieve the best contact lens fit possible.
