Contact Lens Fitting
At Highland Ophthalmology Associates our Optometrists provide complete contact lens services. Whether soft cosmetic contacts to replace or supplement spectacle wear, or specialty custom lenses to correct vision in the presence of various corneal pathologies, including keratoconus, corneal scarring, post corneal transplant, and severe dry eye.
Soft contact lenses come in select powers to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia. As the name implies, soft contact lenses are made from a soft plastic material that drapes over the cornea. When properly fit, these lenses provide clear vision and superior comfort.
Specialty custom lenses, including scleral lenses and corneal rigid gas permeable lenses (RGP), are designed and fabricated specifically for your eye. These lenses are rigid in form, allowing them to mask many corneal irregularities, providing superior vision that is unobtainable with standard soft lenses or spectacles.
Our doctors will perform comprehensive exams to determine which modality is best suited for your eyes and work with you to achieve the best vision.
