Making sure that you see clearly on a regular basis is a point of constant concern for people who live with vision impairments. For people with vision issues, whether it be nearsightedness or farsightedness, making sure that optical prescriptions are up to date and optical goods are to their requirements is something that should be looked at often. For those looking to get contact lenses, we here at EyeCare Associates of San Bernardino can provide you with the contact lens exam you need, and we can also offer Riverside speciality lenses if required as well.
As common as vision impairments are, no two are alike. Each person has unique vision needs and will have a unique prescription to accommodate those needs. Aside from how strong your prescription lenses are, the types of lenses used may also depend on the exact nature of your eye condition. For people with issues like keratoconus, dry eye and other diseases, getting contacts may be difficult or downright impossible. But with speciality lenses, there may be some possibilities. Here at EyeCare Associates of San Bernardino we offer a wide range of eye and optical services, including speciality treatment for those who need it. Conditions like keratoconus and dry eye syndrome make it difficult to wear contact lenses because of how contacts work. Contacts are placed directly over the eye’s lens, which is also known as the cornea. For those with keratoconus, contact lenses may not fit properly because their condition causes the cornea to bulge outward. For those with dry eye, wearing contacts may be irritating and the lenses may become too dry to wear safely after a short period of time. But with Riverside speciality lenses, you may be able to use contacts. Scleral lenses are designed to treat a variety of eye conditions, many of which do not respond to other forms of treatment.
