Contact Lens Specialty Designs

We are especially proud of our specialty contact lenses as well as our abilities to fit all types of contact lenses available. We specialize in difficult contact lens fits.

In order to give you the most precise lenses for your needs, we have a Corneal Topographer. This device allows us to accurately map the entire surface of the cornea. With this instrument we can precisely align the contact lenses we fit to the cornea for the best fit possible.

We welcome easy fits too! However, we are experts in fitting difficult cases and in fitting the various types of gas permeable contact lenses that are available today. These lenses are much more difficult to fit and require lots of experience.

We have been fitting gas permeable lenses for over 50 years.

Gas permeable lenses require more experience because:

  1. The doctor must be able to modify the lenses in the office to achieve the best results. If lenses need to be sent back to the lab for modifications this can be time consuming and difficult for the patient.

  2. Being able to modify the lenses on the premises makes it possible for the doctor to achieve a custom fit.

  3. Modifying lenses on the premises makes it possible to make the lens edges as thin as possible to achieve maximum comfort.

  4. In house polishing of the lenses makes it possible to resurface the lenses as they age and to increase their useful life span.

Gas Permeable (RGP)

Gas permeable (GP) contact lenses, also known as rigid gas permeable (RGP) lenses, are hard contact lenses made of silicone-containing compounds that allow oxygen to pass through the lens material to the eye. 

Hybrid Contact Lenses

What Is A Hybrid Contact Lens? A hybrid contact lens combines a Gas Permeable (GP) or “hard” lens) centre with a soft skirt to give you the clear, crisp vision of a “hard” lens and the comfort and ease-of-wear of a soft lens.

Scleral Contact Lenses

Unlike soft contact lenses that lie directly on the cornea, scleral lenses are large and rest on the sclera. This is the white part of the eye that is less sensitive than the cornea. The lenses are gas-permeable, allowing oxygen to reach the cornea.

EyePrint Pro

The EyePrintPRO™ is a prosthetic scleral shell, providing a solution for keratoconus, irregular astigmatism, ocular surface disease (dry eye), trauma, extreme cases of deformed eyes, chemical burns, or simply those who desire better vision and comfort.
