Specialty Contact Lenses for Your Vision & Comfort

Contact lenses can provide crisp, comfortable vision for people with a variety of eye conditions. 

We offer personalized contact lens exams and fittings, whether you’re looking for a new contact lens prescription for a common refractive error like nearsightedness, or a more nuanced concern, including irregular corneas, scarring, ocular surface disease, and more. 

A contact lens exam and fitting are needed to determine what contact lenses are the ideal fit for your vision needs. This is performed separately from your comprehensive eye exam.

We look forward to finding the perfect lens option for your visual needs

What Types of Vision Problems Can Contact Lenses Help With?

Contact lenses can help correct a variety of extremely common vision problems, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. We also work with patients who have very high refractive errors to help them find a contact lens option that suits them.

Contacts can also provide clearer vision for people with conditions like keratoconus or irregular corneas, those who do not have good visual potential in eyeglasses, or help those living with ocular surface disease or dry eye gain more comfortable vision. 

Learn more about how contact lenses might be able to help you.

Nearsightedness, is an axial length condition that manifests as distance blur.

Farsightedness, also known as hyperopia, occurs when nearby objects appear blurry.

Astigmatism is a common eye condition caused by the irregular shape of the front surface of your eye (the cornea) or the lens inside your eye. This causes the light to focus on 2 different areas of the retina. 

People with astigmatism may have symptoms like eye discomfort and headaches. Toric or rigid gas-permeable (RGP) contact lenses can correct astigmatism for clearer vision.

Contact lenses are a convenient option for patients who are nearsighted or farsighted. They work to correct your vision, helping you see more clearly. 

For children and young adults, orthokeratology (ortho-k) lenses may be prescribed. They’re worn overnight to help combat the progression of myopia while also correcting vision. Learn more about myopia control or read this article (see page 17) from our own Dr. Gagliardi.

Corneal diseases are a group of conditions that affect the cornea (the clear structure in front of the coloured part of the eye/iris). They can be progressive or static and usually permanent. They have an array of different etiologies, from trauma to hereditary.

Keratoconus is a type of corneal condition where the cornea gradually becomes more cone-like in shape. This is a progressive condition that can lead to permanent visual impairment. There are options available to help slow this progression and/or improve the quality of vision.

This irregular shape of the cornea prevents it from refracting light into your eye, resulting in blurry vision. Symptoms often include blurred vision, increased light sensitivity, increased glare,  and eye strain.

Specialty contact lenses help create a smooth surface for light to enter and bend naturally to try to improve the quality of vision for people with these conditions.

The best lens for someone with corneal disease depends on their unique needs. A type of rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lens called a scleral lens is often an effective option.

Other corneal irregularities we may be able to address with contact lenses include:

  • Post-LASIK Ectasia: A rare complication after LASIK surgery that causes progressive thinning and bulging of the cornea, leading to distorted vision and potential loss of visual acuity.
  • High Refractive Errors: Vision issues that occur when the eye is unable to properly focus light, resulting in difficulty seeing clearly close up, far away, or both.
  • Corneal Scarring: Corneal scars can be caused by damage to the cornea from an abrasion, scratch, infection, or disease.
  • Radial Keratotomy (RK): Patients who previously received RK surgery to correct their vision may benefit from contact lenses for clearer vision.
  • Post-transplant, such as penetrating keratoplasty (PK): After corneal surgery, contact lens wear can help a person get even more clear vision.

Dry eye is a multi-factorial condition where the eye does not produce enough tears, tears evaporate quickly or a combination of both. There are many causes to dry eye including post-surgical, hormonal, auto-immune, metabolic, reduced gland secretion, reduced oils in tears, and more. Some common symptoms of this eye condition are redness, burning and stinging sensations, or feeling like something is always in your eye.

Dry eye is a common complaint among contact lens wearers, but that doesn’t mean you should give up on lenses entirely. Certain contact lenses, such as silicone hydrogel lenses and scleral lenses, help reduce discomfort and support a moist environment, providing symptom relief.

Dr. Gagliardi has a dry eye focus to her practice utilizing the most adaptable lenses and therapeutic drop combinations to optimize visual comfort.

Each person’s experience with eye disease is unique. We’ll work closely with you to better understand what you need to see more clearly with more ocular comfort.

Our team is skilled in caring for and co-managing patients with ocular surface disease. We’ll work tirelessly to find you a contact lens option to better support you and your vision.

Ocular surface diseases that may be improved with contact lenses include:

  • Sjogren’s Syndrome: A chronic autoimmune disorder that affects tear production and other moisture-producing glands in your body.
  • Lagophthalmos (Incomplete Eyelid Closure): This inability to completely close the eyelid can be caused by nerve damage, paralysis, or other underlying issues and can lead to dry eyes, vision distortion, and discomfort.
  • Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS): A rare skin disorder that can cause serious eye damage. Contacts can provide a protective barrier to the eyes and alleviate discomfort.
  • Graft vs Host disease (GvHD): Specialized contact lenses designed for dry eye can be used to retain moisture in the eyes and provide relief from discomfort caused by GvHD.
  • Limbal Stem Cell Deficiency (LSCD): Contacts can help improve vision in LSCD patients by providing a smooth surface for light to pass through, correcting refractive errors, and protecting the cornea from further damage or irritation.

Light sensitivity, also known as photosensitivity, is common in conditions that cause iris anomalies and those with severe corneal scarring. 

People with photosensitivity usually feel discomfort in places with bright lights. The great news is, contact lenses can improve the comfort of their vision.
