What Could Prevent You From Wearing Contacts?

Despite being a fantastic solution for people looking for an alternative to traditional glasses, contact lenses aren’t for everyone. Some factors that could prevent you from wearing contacts could include:

  • Eye diseases
  • Frequent eye infections
  • Dry eyes
  • Allergies
  • Living or working in dusty, dirty, and dry environments

To ensure you can wear contact lenses comfortably, you’ll need to have a comprehensive eye exam.

The Contact Lens Process

The Eye Exam

Comprehensive eye exams are essential before we fit any of our patients with contact lenses. Not only will they help us determine if you have any conditions that could prevent comfortable wear, but they will also help us find the prescription your eyes need to see clearly.

The fitting process helps us ensure your contacts sit comfortably every time you use them. To do this, we will take a detailed measurement of your corneal parameters, including its size and shape. We will also make adjustments to ensure they fit comfortably whenever necessary.

Once we have a pair of contacts that work best for you, we’ll provide you with a trial pair to wear for a short period (generally about a week). We’ll book a follow-up exam after the trial period to see how well you’ve adjusted to life with contact lenses. We will also take this opportunity to make adjustments to your contacts where needed.

Specialty Lenses

Scleral Contact Lenses

Scleral contact lenses are a fantastic option for those who have corneal conditions, like keratoconus, that prevent the comfortable wear of traditional contact lenses.

Scleral contact lenses have a wider diameter than traditional contacts, which allows them to sit on the sclera (whites) of your eyes. The center of the contact lens “vaults” over your cornea, providing comfortable vision without affecting your cornea.

Rigid gas-permeable (RGP) contact lenses are designed to be more durable and provide more oxygen to the cornea than traditional soft contact lenses. These contacts are an excellent choice for those who have difficulty wearing conventional contact lenses or if they suffer from dry eyes.
