We offer specialty contact lenses fitting and provide emergency after-hour services.
New advances in contact lens technology allow most people to successfully wear contact lenses, even those with astigmatism or bifocal requirements. You will quickly recognize that we go beyond the “one size fits all” approach to contact lenses and understand the importance of personal attention when it comes to your vision and comfort.
Drs. Oman, Johnson, Byrnes & Skelton will thoroughly evaluate your visual needs, prescription, and long term eye health to determine which brand and type of contact lens provides you the most convenience, comfort, and eye health.
For those patients that have had a difficult time finding lenses that provide good enough vision for their lifestyle, there are RGP or “hard” contacts. These lenses do provide better vision in most cases, but are usually a bit more difficult to adjust to comfort wise. There are many patients in these lenses that are completely happy and unwilling to switch to soft contact lenses.
Silicone Hydrogel Lenses
Another category of lenses that are fairly new to the market are the silicone hydrogel lenses. These lenses can provide many times more oxygen to the eyes compared to other category of lenses. These lenses are actually providing some patients with a second chance to remain in soft contact lenses. If there is a significant risk of failing ocular health due to lack of oxygen to the cornea, then these lenses may provide the needed oxygen and therefore may extend a patient’s ability to remain in soft lenses.
