Specialty Contact Lenses 

Contact lenses are a great convenience, but some eye and vision problems can make selecting the right pair difficult. That’s where specialty contacts can come to the rescue. Our Prescott optometrist, Dr. Courtright, is happy to provide these advanced lens technologies for Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley, Dewey-Humbot and surrounding areas.

What Are Specialty Contacts -- & How Do They Help?

Specialty contacts have features that allow them to provide clear, comfortable vision correction even in the face of "hard to fit" conditions. Examples include:

Dry Eye

Chronic dry eye can make contact lens wear extremely uncomfortable, since standard contacts may not retain eye moisture well enough to maintain your tear film. We're proud to offer Bausch+Lomb Ultra contact lenses for dry eye sufferers. The special MoistureSeal technology in these lenses retain up to 95 percent of their moisture even after a 16-hour day.

Presbyopia

Presbyopia counts as a "hard to fit" condition because of the need to correct for distance, intermediate and near vision fields simultaneously. Multifocal contact lenses are capable of doing just that, but some do a better job of it than others. Our Bausch+Lomb Ultra for Presbyopia lenses are the first major advance in multifocal contacts in at least 15 years, offering both MoistureSeal and an unbeatably smooth transition between the three zones of vision. This product even gives you the option of daily disposable contact lenses or one-month of replacement lenses.

Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a weakness of corneal tissue that causes the cornea to bulge outward abnormally, causing refractive errors. Many cases of keratoconus can be addressed through scleral contacts. These oversized (but still comfortable) lenses extend right over the cornea without even touching it, anchored on the white of the eye.

Astigmatism

Toric contact lenses are a good option for correcting astigmatism. These lenses are shaped and weighted so that they will stay put on the cornea instead of rotating every time you blink. This allows for pinpoint-accurate correction of individual corneal aberrations.

Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis

Giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC) is an inflammation caused by sensitivity to the proteins that gather on contact lenses. If you're troubled by this condition, our Prescott optometrist may recommend disposable contact lenses that you can simply discard after a day's use, minimizing the risk of GPC. If your prescription is stronger than disposable lenses can handle, we can fit you with RGP (rigid gas permeable) lenses, which don't attract proteins as readily as soft lenses.

Our Eye Doctor in Prescott Valley Has Your Ideal Contacts

If you've despaired of finding contacts you can actually wear due to your "hard to fit" condition, our eye doctor in Prescott Valley is ready to end that problem for you. But the first step in getting any kind of contacts is scheduling a contact lens exam. Contact Prescott Valley Eye Care at (928) 771-9939 today!
