What are speaciality contact lenses?
Specialty contacts are lenses that are designed for patients who have corneal conditions or other eye issues for which conventional contacts aren’t suitable. Since regular contact lenses sit directly on the surface of the eyes covering the cornea, it is imperative that they fit correctly and comfortably.
How do I know if I need speciality contact lenses?
You need a Speciality Contact Lens if your answer is yes to any of the questions:
- Is your spectacles degree above 1200?
- Is your astigmatism above 300?
- Do you have difficulty reading your book or mobile phone after you put on your contact lenses?
- Do you have severe or advanced Dry Eyes with normal contact lenses?
- Have you had a Post-LASIK complication such as Cornea Ectasia and your vision is blurry?
- Have you had a Cornea Post Graft?
- You are diagnosed with Keratoconus, Pellucid Marginal Degeneration, Cornea Rings, or Ocular Post Surgical Complication?
- Do you experience discomfort whenever you wear normal contact lenses?
- Do your normal contact lenses dislodge frequently?
- You are concerned about your child’s Myopia?
- You are not a suitable candidate for LASIK/Refractive Surgery?
- You do not want to wear contact lenses during the daytime?
Specialty contact lenses will help you solve the above problems. These lenses are not your typical contact lenses that are easily available from your regular optical shops. You will need to be properly fitted by a trained Optometrist and the lens is fully customised for you only.
