When you have astigmatism, dry eyes or other eye conditions, you might not be able to wear regular contact lenses. This does not mean that you have to wear eyeglasses instead to correct your vision. In fact, there are many options available for hard to fit contacts. At Advantage Eyecare, our eye doctor in North Richland Hills can provide you with the right contacts for hard to fit eyes.

Eye Conditions That Require Hard to Fit Contact Lenses

Certain types of eye and vision problems make it difficult or impossible to wear regular soft contact lenses or gas permeable ones. These include the following:

  • Dry eye syndrome
  • Keratoconus
  • Presbyopia
  • Astigmatism
  • Giant papillary conjunctivitis

If you have any of these conditions, our eye doctor will discuss your options for hard to fit contacts. These contacts help ensure that you end up with lenses that correct your vision and fit your eyes comfortably. 

Types of Hard to Fit Contacts 

Depending on which eye condition you have, you might need contacts that are considered hard to fit. Our optometrist will let you know which type of hard to fit contacts are the most effective ones for you to choose from. Some of the types that are available include the following:

  • Scleral contact lenses, gas permeable lenses and hybrid lenses for keratoconus
  • Toric contact lenses for astigmatism
  • Custom soft lenses or gas permeable lenses for dry eye syndrome
  • Bifocal and multifocal lenses for presbyopia
  • Soft daily disposable lenses or gas permeable lenses for giant papillary conjunctivitis

Our optometrist will run tests and check your eyes and vision in order to help you select the right type of hard to fit lenses for your eyes. These lenses should fit your eyes as comfortable as possible and provide you with improved vision.
