Some people wear eyeglasses happily, while others would prefer contact lenses. But many in the latter group feel they have no choice because they "can't wear contacts" due to a particular eye sensitivity issue, refractive problem or other barrier. But ordinary soft contacts aren't the only option available. Any Elkton optometrist at Sites Vision Clinic can provide you with specialty contact lenses for those hard-to-fit scenarios.
For many lucky individuals, "generic" soft contacts do an excellent job of correcting simple refractive disorders, especially when there are no complicating health or lifestyle factors to consider. But other people have some extra obstacles to overcome if they want to enjoy clear vision safely and comfortably. For example, soft contacts tend to collected stray proteins over time, and in some sensitive individuals this can cause a form of irritation called giant papillary conjunctivitis, or GPC. Chronic dry eye may be made worse by the wrong kind of contact lens, while complex or strong vision prescriptions (presbyopia, astigmatism, severe myopia) may need more accurate correction than regular soft lenses can provide. If you have a condition called keratoconus, which deforms the contours of the cornea into a cone-like bulge, ordinary lenses may not be able to correct your vision adequately.
