Specialty Contact Lenses


While most individuals have no trouble transitioning to contact lenses, some people experience difficulty wearing them for one reason or another. Whether it’s eye shape, certain conditions or impairments, some patients are considered “hard to fit”.

You may be considered a hard to fit contact lens candidate if you have one of the following conditions:

  • Dry Eyes
  • Astigmatism
  • Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis (GPC)
  • Keratoconus
  • Pellucid Marginal Degeneration
  • Post-LASIK or other refractive surgery
  • Presbyopia (reduced near vision common in individuals aged 40 and over)
  • Corneal Scarring

Eye Medical Clinic is a great place to come if you fall into this “hard to fit” category. Our experienced optometrists love to help individuals just like you find a contact lens that is comfortable and effective. No worries – We see you.
