What types of hard-to-fit contacts are available?

There are many types of hard-to-fit contacts that can help you find relief from vision disorders despite pre-existing eye conditions. Some of the most common hard-to-fit contacts include:

  • Scleral lenses: These types of contacts fit over the entirety of the eye, which can help in people with keratoconus that have abnormal growths over the cornea of the eye
  • Gas permeable lenses: These types of contracts allow oxygen to cross the barrier, which can help create a moist layer on top of the eye that is beneficial in people with dry eye syndrome
  • Hybrid lenses: These lenses combine the improved clarity of rigid lenses with the comfort of soft contact lenses. This can help people stay comfortable while also significantly improving their vision  

Do I need hard-to-fit contacts?

If you have any eye diseases, such as keratoconus, a previous eye injury, or are new to wearing contacts, you might need specialty hard-to-fit contacts. However, only your optometrist will be able to determine the right pair of contacts for you. By performing an eye exam, you can help your optometrist find the best solution for you.
