With the current advances in contact lens technology, we have better lenses (both soft and rigid gas permeable) to correct astigmatism.
We specialize in difficult contact lens fits for irregular astigmatism, such as keratoconus and corneal scarring.
Scleral contact lenses are now available for patients with keratoconus who cannot tolerate rigid gas permeable lenses. In addition, scleral contact lenses can be used for treatment of severe dry eye syndrome when other treatments are not successful.
Now there are new progressive contact lenses that can give the patient reasonable vision for distance, intermediate distance, and reading.
We recommend daily disposable contacts for occasional use (weekend skiing, etc.), for many young people, for those who do not want to spend the necesssary time to maintain and clean ordinary lenses, and for allergy sufferers.
Most of our physicians have sub-specialty fellowship training in pediatric ophthalmology, glaucoma, retinal disease and surgery, oculoplastics and cosmetics, and corneal and refractive surgery.Leading Multi-Specialty Eye Care
