Hard to Fit Contacts FAQs

At Coastal Family Eye Care, we understand the importance of regular eye care. When the shape of the eye changes for any number of reasons including trauma, misuse, and the natural process of aging, then the contact lenses necessary to correct vision will change. Some eyes, especially the eyes of those suffering from astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus, and related conditions, are particularly difficult to create contact lenses for. Our optometrist will assess your condition to determine the type of contact lenses that will benefit you the most. Following are the answers to several questions our eye doctor frequently receives regarding hard-to-fit contacts.

What Makes an Eye Difficult to Fit for Contact Lenses? 

The purpose of a contact lens is always to return the eye to optical perfection. The lens sits atop the cornea, where it refracts the light in a manner that allows your eyes to focus. If your refractive error is mild, this is not a major task.  When an eye becomes very irregularly shaped, either in its entirety or on the surface where the lens rests, then the difficulty of fitting the lens properly increases. It is necessary to consider the shape of the eye, the ability of the contact to stay in place during normal usage, and the health of the eye's surface when fitting you for contacts.

What Eye Conditions Require Specialty Contacts?

  • Dry eye
  • Astigmatism
  • Keratoconus, PMD (Pellucid Marginal Degeneration), and other conditions related to irregularly shaped corneas
  • Eyelid irritations such as GPC (Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis)
  • Presbyopia and other conditions common to individuals aged 40 and over
  • Scarred corneas or eyes that have been altered by LASIK and other optical surgeries
