Specialty fit contact lenses refers to any of Vista Eye Care’s custom contact lenses. We fit a wide variety of specialty fit lenses including custom soft lenses, gas-permeable lenses, ortho-k/CRT lenses, and scleral lenses. These lenses are often worn because standard “off-the-shelf” contacts lenses aren’t applicable to the patient’s vision correction. Often times, a patient’s lens parameters are too high, or their own eye shape is too unique to comfortably or safely wear standard fit contact lenses. Some of these lenses is worn for aesthetic value such as the theatrical lenses. The contacts listed here have allowed many of our patients to have fantastic vision with comfortable, healthy contact lenses. Below is a partial list of lenses that we fit.
Custom Soft Lenses
|Type of Custom Soft Lens
|Toric Color Lens
|For those patients with high astigmatism, these lenses offer a wide range of color options all while properly correcting your vision.
|These lenses allow for custom parameters in a multifocal design.
|Westcon Horizon Toric
|These lenses offer a huge range of parameters for those patients with tricky contact lens prescriptions.
|This is a monthly replacement lens that comes in a large parameter range. These lenses typically arrive much quicker than other high-toric lenses, making them more practical for those patients with high amounts of astigmatism.
|For mild keratoconus patients who aren’t ready to wear a gas-permeable lens.
|Post Refractive Surgery (PRS) Lens
|For those patients that need to wear contact lenses after LASIK, PRK, or RK.
Custom Gas Permeable Lenses
|Type of Custom Gas Permeable Lens
|Spherical Gas Permeable Lens
|Because they have a tremendous range of available parameters, gas permeable lenses are used for many different treatment modalities. They can be used for both adults and children with a wide variety of visual needs.
|Bitoric Gas Permeable Lens
|This is a gas permeable lens that is designed to correct astigmatism.
|Multifocal Gas Permeable Lens
|These lenses allow for simultaneous distance and near vision, and the quality of the vision with these lenses is often better than the quality achieved with soft multifocal contact lenses.
|Reverse Geometry Lens
|Useful for patients who wear gas-permeable lenses after having had LASIK, PRK, or RK.
|These large gas permeable lenses don’t contact the cornea, but rather sit on the sclera for a uniquely fitting, and extremely comfortable lens wearing experience. These lenses are especially useful in those patients with corneal disease.
|These hybrid soft/gas permeable lenses offer the vision quality of gas permeable lenses with the comfort of a soft lens.
|Ortho-K / CRT Lenses
|We use CRT (corneal refractive therapy) lenses to gently reshape the patient’s corneas when they are sleeping at night. After waking, the patient can then see clearly during the day without contacts or glasses.
