Complex Contact Lens Fitting
Certain conditions can lead to an irregularly shaped cornea. Normal standard contact lenses don’t usually work very well in such corneas as the shape of the lens doesn’t match the shape of the cornea. To get better vision, contact lenses that are specially designed and custom made for irregular corneas are required.
These lenses are most commonly indicated for the following conditions:
• Corneal grafts
• Irregular corneas due to refractive surgery
• Corneal Trauma
There are now many manufacturers of specialist lenses with new designs being launched regularly. Even if you have tried contact lenses in the past and have been unsuccessful with them, its worth having a consultation to discuss and assess new lens options.
