Contact Lenses for Almost Every Eye

Certain eye conditions and prescription can complicate eye care. Something that may seem simple and common, like the use of contact lenses, can feel almost impossible for a patient with dry eye, keratoconus, corneal transplant or severe astigmatism.

Abbey Eye Care believes everyone deserves the option of contact lenses, which is why we carry a large variety of specialty contact lenses. If you’ve been told you cannot wear contact lenses in the past, we might have the right type for you.

Our Specialty Contact Lenses

Scleral contact lenses are one option for patients with keratoconus, moderate to severe dry eye, post corneal transplant and other conditions that make contact lens wear challenging. Where most contact lenses only cover the cornea, scleral contacts cover the cornea and a portion of the sclera, or “the white” of the eye. This added coverage can make the lens more stable and comfortable for the wearer. Dr. Tina Goodhew has fit hundreds of challenging patients with scleral contact lenses and enjoys helping patients achieve optimal vision, often times better than they have ever seen before.

Ortho-K contact lenses are a special type of rigid lens often worn overnight as a means of myopia control. As the wearer sleeps, the contact lens gently reshapes their cornea, temporarily correcting their refractive error. This overnight correction allows users to go about their day without glasses or other corrective devices.

Toric lenses are used to correct astigmatism. Unlike spherical lenses, toric contacts offer different levels of correction along different axes of the lens. Because toric lenses require a specific orientation to work properly, they come equipped with a unique design feature which helps the lens align properly with the eye.

Multifocal lenses offer multiple levels of correction within a single lens and are used to correct presbyopia; difficulty reading in people over 45. Multifocal contacts are also often used as a means of myopia control in children.
