Hard to Fit Contacts at 20/20 Eyevenue
There are a lot of reasons that contact lenses may be a good choice for your vision correction needs. People generally like the convenience of not wearing glasses and appreciate the natural look contact lenses offer. However, not everyone is able to wear basic contact lenses. That's why we offer hard to fit contact lenses for patients with eye shape irregularities. If you live in the Broomfield, Westminster, or Denver area and are looking for hard to fit contacts, 20/20 Eyevenue can help you find the pair that best fits you.
What Are Hard to Fit Contacts?
Hard to fit contacts are for people who can't typically wear standard contacts lenses because the lenses don't fit the shape of their eye correctly. Ill-fitting lenses are not only uncomfortable, but they also don't provide the quality of vision correction you're looking for. In some cases, they can be more than just uncomfortable and can lead to damage to the eye and other related problems. That's why our Westminster office is here to help.
Hard to Fit Contacts for Astigmatism
Among the most common reasons for needing hard to fit contacts is astigmatism. Astigmatism affects the curvature and shape of the eye and can make it difficult for the patient to wear contact lenses that fit correctly. But for many people with this condition, it doesn't mean they can't wear contact lenses at all. It simply means they need an optometrist who understands the issue and can work with them to find the best pair of hard to fit lenses that meets their needs. Hard to fit contacts are also recommended for patients with irregularly shaped corneas, presbyopia, or chronic dry eyes.
How We Find the Right Pair for You
We begin by measuring your cornea curvature and checking the overall health of your eyes. Next, we provide you with a series of contact lenses to try for fit, comfort, visual needs, and style. After trying these on, we will have you switch to a different lens and recheck the fit. You will then be given another series of lenses to wear as we measure the shape and size of your iris in response to various light tests. Once this measurement is complete, we will choose which lens option best matches these measurements so you can finally see both well and feel comfortable.
