Hard to Fit Contacts from Our Eye Doctor in Falmouth
In an ideal world, everyone suffering from a refractive error would find the process getting contact lenses as simple as "buying off the rack," with one type of lens equally suitable for everyone. Unfortunately, every pair of eyes has its own specific issues, and that often means seeking more specialized answers for your corrective vision needs. Here at Advanced Eyecare Specialists, our eye doctor in Falmouth can determine what kind of hard to fit contacts will work best for your hard to fit eyes.
When Ordinary Contact Lenses Won't Do
The easiest vision issues to correct with contacts lenses are simple cases of farsightedness or nearsightedness, with no complicating health issues or sensitivities to worry about. Many people are indeed lucky enough to get away with standard soft contacts for their corrective needs, especially while they're under the age of 40. The rest of us need a little more help due to factors such as:
- Presbyopia, a focusing problem that affects most people beginning in their 40s
- Allergies and sensitivities such as giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC)
- Dry eye syndrome, which can be made worse by the wrong kinds of contacts
- Refractive errors caused by corneal irregularities such as keratoconus and severe astigmatism
In these cases, you may need more than standard contacts can provide. Dr. Sajban can make this determination with the aid of a contact lens exam. By considering your underlying health, specific refractive error, and degree of vision trouble, we can figure out exactly that kind of specialized contact lenses you might need.
