What is a Specialty Contact Lens Fitting?

There are various different types of specialty contact lenses and your eye doctor will be able to recommend which is most suited to you based on your individual requirements. 

As an optometrist, I love hearing from my patients. Yearly exams give me the privilege of keeping up with them, and many have become friends. Having been in practice for over 16 years, it is not uncommon for me to have given college students their first eye exam as a child.

Me and Dr. James E. Joy, Associate Professor at my undergraduate alma mater, Marshall University. His excellent vision (pun intended) saw something in me worth pursuing. As a student of his parasitology class, he encouraged me to do independent studies and research in the field.

It sounds self-serving when we warn people about internet lenses, but we see the problems they cause far too often. It’s important to remember these are medical devices that require professional fitting and regular monitoring.

Do you have keratoconus, Pellucid Marginal Degeneration, corneal scars, poor results from LASIK or other refractive surgery or irregular astigmatism?
