Contact lenses are a fantastic way to go for those that need corrective lenses but do not want to wear glasses all the time. That being said, with the help of a great San Antonio optometrist, you can get contacts that are "hard to fit" as well as traditional contacts with the help of Today’s Vision Bulverde.
Hard to fit lenses are meant for eyes that are shaped differently or that cannot tolerate typical contacts. The most common hard to fit contact lenses are toric lenses for eyes that have astigmatism. These lenses are designed differently than a typical lens. They are designed to fit the abnormal shape of an eye that has astigmatism. They can be weighted to help the lens stay in the right place, they might be truncated or clipped to help them stay in the right place.
Hard to fit lenses are lenses that are not typical and that are not shaped or designed the same as normal soft contact lenses. Regular lenses are all the same thickness, they are spherical, and their orientation does not matter so long as they are centered on the eye. Hard to fit or toric lenses are designed especially with multifocal points to help you see and to help accommodate the shape of the eye.
