There are several options for vision correction, and some of them are easier to use than others. If you have an eye exam and your eye doctor recommends correcting your vision, you may be interested in contact lenses. Most people wear standard soft contact lenses without any problems. However, some may need hard to fit contacts because of the shape of their eyes or other concerns. If you're in the Reading area, Lisa M McDevitt OD can help with contact lens concerns. Here is what to consider when talking with our optometrist.
The most common reason that a person may need hard to fit contacts is due to corneal issues. If the shape of your cornea isn't symmetrical or you have lumps or bumps on it, standard contact lenses won't fit properly. That makes it hard to keep contact lenses where they should be and can also contribute to a lot of discomfort. Contacts that are for hard to fit corneas are an option our optometrist offers.
Another reason people need specialty contacts is if they're trying to correct a particular problem with their eyes. Some contacts can be worn at night, for example, to gently reshape the cornea, so you have better vision through the next day without needing to wear any correct lenses while awake. Talking to our eye doctor about the type of eye care you need is the best way to keep your eyes and vision as strong as possible.
If you're in or around the Reading area, Lisa M McDevitt OD can give you the information you need for proper eye care. With an eye exam and consultation, you can find out if hard to fit contacts or specialty contacts are going to be the right choice for your needs. While it's not possible for everyone to wear contact lenses, most people can do so if they have the right eye doctor on their side. We're here to help with that.
