All about Contact Lenses
The Importance of Having an Eyeglasses Fitting
Do you desire to wear contact lenses? Have you been told that you cannot be fit with contact lenses?
Don’t worry, there may be a solution for you! While regular soft contact lenses work for some, patients with keratoconus, irregular corneas, post-LASIK, post-radial keratotomy, aphakia, high myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism, presbyopia and dry eyes may require specialty contact lenses.
