My eyes are too dry.
Daily disposable contact lenses are also a great option for dry eyes. Nothing beats the feeling of a newly opened contact lens on your eye. Since dailies are individually packaged, the wearer will experience this every day! Inserting a new lens daily also ensures that no irritants or allergens remain on the lens from previous wear. Custom scleral lenses offer an additional option for people with severe dry eye who have been unsuccessful with soft daily disposables who feel they can’t wear contacts.
I have an eye condition like keratoconus that affects the front of my eye and gives it an irregular shape.
There are many conditions that cause the front surface of the eye to be irregular. Some of these are keratonconus, pellucid marginal dystrophy, and post-corneal transplant. Although people with these conditions cannot wear standard soft contact lenses, there are many customizable options available. Including specialty soft, rigid gas permeable, and scleral contact lenses. Customized contact lenses have the added benefit of giving the wearers with these conditions better vision than with their glasses.
Still think you can’t wear contacts?
