Specialty and Scleral Contact Lenses
Dr. Ryan Cazares specializes in fitting specialty contact lenses, which includes scleral contact lenses, orthokeratology (Ortho K) contact lenses, rigid gas permeable contact lenses, and multifocal contact lenses.
Scleral contact lenses are for irregular corneas and can help with vision problems caused by keratoconus, corneal transplants, and post-refractive surgery irregularities (LASIK, RK, etc.), corneal scarring, and severe dry eye. With these contact lenses, it may be possible to help someone see better than they ever have before.
Orthokeratology (Ortho K) contact lenses are great for preventing the progression of myopia (nearsightedness) in children. They work by temporarily reshaping the cornea so that after taking them out, the patient is able to see well. This also allows ortho K lenses to be a great alternative to LASIK surgery for adults.
Multifocal contact lenses can help those over the age of 40 see up close and see small print.
Scott Eye Care is equipped with a corneal topographer to assist with mapping the hills and valleys of the cornea to more easily fit specialty contact lenses. Our doctors will map your cornea, apply diagnostic lenses to your eyes, and work with our special lab to obtain the best fitting contact lenses for your cornea.
Over the course of a few weeks, we will work to find the best-fitting contact lenses to give you the best vision possible.
