To ensure successful contact lens wear, we require that contact lens fitting exams are offered only to patients that have had a comprehensive eye exam within the last 12 months from an eye care professional. We want to be certain that patients have eyes that are suitable for contact lenses before initiating contact lens wear. For first time contact lens patients and those that may need a refresher, our staff will gladly train and educate patients about the correct contact lens insertion, removal and care techniques. We would like our patients to understand that contact lenses are medical devices that can cause harm to your eyes if they are not professionally fitted or used properly.
Contact Lenses for Keratoconus
Even if patients are able to wear contact lenses, they often need specialty lenses. Fittings for these lenses require special training and can require several visits as well as follow up visits once a lens has been chosen. Dr. Dash has specialized training and experience to help these hard to fit patients. The most frequently used contact lenses for keratoconus patients are gas permeable lenses.
