We here at True Eye Experts are happy to inform those of you out there who have a hard time with contact lenses that we are here for you. There are a surprising number of patients who want to wear contact lenses, but may have some type of genetic, systemic, or medication-related issue that makes fitting a contact lens difficult. While these matters can be outside the scope of what some eye doctors with less experience can help with, our team is ready to help.
Our doctors at True Eye Experts have years of experience not only dealing with “hard-to-fit” contact lens patients, but also managing some of these cases with custom-made scleral contact lenses. Scleral contacts not only restore eyesight, but can also provide patients comfort and vision that some never thought they could achieve. Getting scleral contact lenses with True Eye Experts can relieve uncomfortable symptoms related to conditions like keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, and certain types of chronic and severe dry eye syndrome.
Many people have not heard of scleral contact lenses because they’re a customized device that many practices reserve only for rare cases. At our offices, we treat all kinds, and these types of cases are not so rare. We make things very easy with our process of fitting these specialized, hard-to-fit lenses.
There are many patients who don’t need specialized, custom scleral lenses, and simply wear disposable soft contacts. Yet some of these patients are still considered “hard-to-fit.” It may be a case of complex astigmatism, or a sudden need to wear bifocal contact lenses, or that the patient has dry eyes or allergies that complicate the fitting of contact lenses.
While we make no guarantee that we can fit every single person walking the planet in contact lenses, our doctors have succeeded in countless cases for our patients where others have failed. We only fit patients in disposable contact lenses that are FDA approved by the best manufacturers, the latest on the market, and provide excellent vision correction: no off-brands or old technology. Contact lenses is just another area where we embrace high-quality solutions.
Speaking of quality, we sometimes have to clear up a bit of confusion in our patients regarding “generic” contact lens brands. While contact lenses are an FDA controlled medical device like prescription drugs, which do have generic alternatives, there is no such thing as a generic equivalent to any of the contact lenses that are produced today by major manufacturers.
You can rest assured that you will be getting the best possible technology available for your eyes. Our team are experts at working with all of the insurances that we take, and many times can combine rebates and discounts that give you the best value anywhere.
