Think Your Eyes Aren’t Compatible With Contacts? Think Again!

August 24, 2021

Your eyes are as unique as you are. Just as no two people are the same, not one pair of eyes is the same as another. That’s why when it comes to contact lenses, a one-size-fits-all philosophy doesn’t always apply. 

So don’t despair if you want to wear contact lenses but believe that your eyes are not compatible. Specially tailored contacts can accommodate eyes that are unusually shaped, have certain medical conditions or have prescriptions that are exceptionally challenging. This is fantastic news for people who are self-conscious about wearing eyeglasses, engage in sports in which glasses are a disadvantage or just plain don’t like wearing glasses. 

Using advanced diagnostic tools and a wealth of in-depth knowledge, the friendly and expert opticians at Optical Outlets will be happy to help you find comfortable lenses that address your specific optical needs. During your appointment with us, we will review with you the kinds of contact lenses that will fit you based on your eye situation. 

As mentioned, standard contacts aren’t always appropriate for everyone. Here are some conditions in which special lenses are required:

  • Keratoconus: when the cornea thins out and then bulges outward in the shape of a cone
  • Dry eyes: burning, red and irritated eyes
  • Astigmatism: blurry vision because of an irregular cornea
  • Corneal scarring; post-corneal transplant
  • Post-LASIK treatment or other refractive procedures

Fortunately, advances in optometry have made it possible for contacts to be available in a wide range of types, even for the most complex eyes. Optical Outlets to accommodate hard-to-fit eyes. Our skilled team is committed to prescribing the appropriate contact lenses for anyone who has been told that they’re not an option.
