Trouble Finding the Perfect Specialty Contact Lenses?
Has a “specialist” ever told you that contact lenses are not made to fit your eyes? We know this can be discouraging, but at Eye Rx, we say, “Don’t give up!” Come into one of our two locations today to speak with a professional about a specialty contact exam.
Dr. Teller and Dr. Lobaugh are the area’s leading optometrists and pride themselves on helping hard-to-fit patients find the right contact lenses. They utilize the latest technology to fit patients who have all types of corneal issues, such as:
- Dry eyes
- Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis (GPC)
- Post-refractive surgery
The Benefits of Scleral Lenses
Scleral lenses are gas-permeable contacts which have a larger diameter than your average lens. These specialty lenses rest on the sclera, or the white area of your eye. This unique design provides a smooth optical surface to correct the irregularities present in the cornea. Scleral lenses were designed to be more stable in the eyes, limiting almost all movement.
Scleral lenses are designed to arch over the surface of the cornea. This allows the contact lenses to be more comfortable for a person with certain conditions, such as keratoconus.
EyePrintPRO, Exclusively at Eye Rx
EyePrintPRO is a prosthetic scleral shell that covers and improves vision by creating a smooth refractive surface for the eye. What makes EyePrintPRO different from other scleral lenses is the EyePrint Impression process, which creates a mold of the patient’s ocular surface. This individually tailored prosthesis is unique for each wearer, offering the best in vision and comfort for those patients with highly irregular corneal surfaces.
Dr. Benjamin Teller is the only Certified EyePrint Practitioner in the DMV area.
