Below are some frequently asked questions about hard to fit contact lenses. 

hard to fit contactWhat Makes Eyes 'Hard to Fit'? 

There are certain conditions that can make it difficult to find contacts for the eyes. These conditions include dry eyes, keratoconus, presbyopia, giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC), astigmatism, and post-refractive surgery (like LASIK). Each of these has a unique set of conditions that make it hard to find contacts to fit just right. Contact our optometrist to find out options that work for you.

There are certain contact lenses you can be fitted with that can ease symptoms from these conditions, enabling you to comfortably wear contacts. There are piggybacking contact lenses, toric contact lenses, soft contact lenses for keratoconus, hybrid contact lenses, and scleral contact lenses.

How Can Your Optometrist Fit You For Contact Lenses That Are Comfortable?

There are special types of contact lenses that our optometrist can find for you based on your eye condition. At your first appointment, our optometrist can go over options on types of contact lenses that will be most comfortable, based on what you have. 

What Is The Contact Lens Exam Process?

You need to first make an appointment to get a contact lens exam. While the contact lens exam is going on, our optometrist can determine the best type of contact lenses for you based on any eye conditions you have and the results of the exam. Contact lenses take time to get used to wearing, so you will be fitted for contact lenses to make sure they are a good fit for you and your eyes. 

You can always come back and get refitted for another pair of contacts if they first do not work for you. There are different types of lenses based on your lifestyle and any eye conditions you may have. Lenses come in extended wear, gas permeable, and disposables. 

Keep up with your yearly eye exams to make just in case other conditions are seen by your optometrist or your vision changes. If your vision changes, you will need to be fitted with new contact lenses.
