Hard to Fit Contacts
Hard-to-Fit Contacts at Butler Eye Care
No two pairs of eyes are the same. That’s why our professional staff understands that some patients require special contact lenses to enhance their vision. At Butler Eye Care in Lebanon, we specialize in offering eye care services to patients with various needs, including hard-to-fit contacts. Our optometrist can test your eyes during a contact lens exam to see if hard-to-fit lenses are right for you.
What Makes Eyes Hard-to-Fit?
Fitting a patient for contact lenses can be challenging if they have astigmatism, keratoconus, presbyopia, or chronic dry eyes. Our eye doctor can determine if you need hard-to-fit contact lenses after a comprehensive contact lens exam. A contact lens exam tests your vision in different ways to determine if you can wear contact lenses and what type of lens best works for your eyes. If you are suffering from eye-related issues, hard-to-fit lenses may be the best choice for you.
What Happens During a Contact Lens Exam?
During a contact lens exam, we perform different tests, including:
- Comprehensive eye exam: We will evaluate your vision clarity and overall eye health during this eye exam. Our optometrist will dilate your eyes to look for signs of cataracts, glaucoma, or macular degeneration. This routine eye care from our eye doctor can help detect medical conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
- Contact lens exam: After the initial eye exam is complete, a contact lens exam is performed to find the best prescription for your contact lenses. Our eye doctor measures your cornea to determine the type and size of lenses you need. Unlike glasses, these contacts sit directly on your eye, making it essential to have an accurate fit. We also evaluate your tear film to confirm that you have enough moisture to wear contact lenses comfortably.
After your exam, our optometrist will recommend the best contacts for you, whether toric, soft, rigid gas-permeable, multifocal, or bifocal lenses. During your contact lens exam, the measurements we take help to ensure you have a pair of lenses that fit your unique eyes.
