At the office of Palisade Eye, our experienced optometrist and team of eyecare professionals can provide medical contact lenses for patients with a diverse range of vision needs. Dedicated to providing the highest quality of care, our office keeps pace with advanced technology and treatment methods to provide the most appropriate, comfortable, and effective contact lenses to improve our patients’ eyesight. Our goal is to help everyone who comes to our office for care maintain healthy eyes and enjoy optimal vision.
Medical contact lenses can help restore normal vision for patients with certain corneal irregularities, including keratoconus. Your cornea is the clear structure at the front of the eye, responsible for focusing light that passes through on its way to the retina. While in a healthy eye, the cornea curves like a dome, in an eye with keratoconus, the center of the cornea gradually begins to thin and bulge, forming a cone shape that distorts your vision. To evaluate this condition and determine a course of care that is right for you, our skilled and experienced optometrist will provide a comprehensive eye examination, which includes a visual acuity test, slit-lamp examination and corneal topography imaging. Our team offers a variety of effective options to treat keratoconus and correct the associated vision problems. These options include rigid gas permeable lenses, soft lenses and hybrid lenses. By using the latest technology in medical contacts, we can fit you with lenses that feel comfortable while improving your vision and corneal health. Our team will create a personalized treatment plan to meet your individual needs. We’ll also address any questions you may have throughout treatment, to help you make the most informed decisions regarding your care.
