Specifically, hard to fit contacts are ideal for those who have a certain eye or vision conditions, such as astigmatism. Astigmatism refers to an abnormal curvature of the eye, which in turn prevents regular contacts from fitting comfortably. Fortunately, specialized lenses can be ordered to custom fit the unique shape of your eyes so that you can comfortably wear contacts. Other types of hard to fit lenses may include toric lenses, gas-permeable lenses, and bifocal lenses.
Not sure what type of contact lens is right for you? We recommended scheduling a contact lens exam with our eye doctor, which will involve a careful assessment of the eyes to determine whether you can wear regular contacts or will need hard to fit contacts due to an eye or vision condition. From there, we can help you select and order contacts that will be comfortable for you to wear and make the transition from glasses to contact lenses as easy as possible. Our eye professionals can also show you how to properly insert, remove, and care for/clean your contact lenses so you feel confident.
