Specialty Contact Lenses
In our office, we listen closely to what you need and are able to deliver the solution to meet the individual problems you may have, be it the need for sharper vision, dry eye, scarring of the cornea, or the need for multifocal contact lenses. We deliver personal solutions for personal problems. Each cornea has a unique “fingerprint” and we have the ability to design and solve special problems of how someone sees or how they appear to others.
There are solutions and customized lenses for people who have
- a miss-shapen eye because of a congenital (birth) defect or an eye injury. A customized contact lens can be made to match the “good” eye so that they both look the same.
- problems seeing after LASIK.
- a color vision deficiency and want to be able to see color.
- extreme sensitivity to light (photophobia).
Family Eye Care has significant expertise in the use and fitting of a wide range of specialty contact lenses. This includes Orthokeratology for children and adults. Dr. Roth also makes use of scleral lenses to treat a wide range of vision conditions. Dr. Roth is a Board Certified Optometric Physician and has over 25 years of experience treating children and adults.
Orthokeratology for Adults and Children
Dr. Roth prescribes Orthokeratology, a Non-Surgical vision correction method for:
- Children who are rapidly becoming more nearsighted.
- Adults who want to see more clearly without the risk of LASIK, to be free of daytime eyeglasses or contact lenses.
Special and Hard-to-Fit Contact Lenses
Dr. Roth prescribes special lenses to solve:
- Complications after LASIK or after having a corneal transplant.
- Keratoconus and other diseases and injuries of the cornea.
- Extreme dry eye.
- Extreme sensitivity to light.
Adults who need vision correction for distance and near can be helped with multifocal contact lenses or multifocal orthokeratology.
Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease that affects the cornea (the front of the eye). In the mildest form of Keratoconus, eyeglasses or soft contact lenses may help, but as the disease worsens, the cornea becomes thinner and more irregular in shape. The preferred treatment for moderate and advanced Keratoconus is Gas Permeable contact lenses
Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) improves vision for children and adults, without the need or the risks associated with LASIK surgery. Ortho-K helps children who are becoming more nearsighted, and helps adults see better both at a distance and up close. Ortho-K is FDA approved. Dr. Roth and his team are experts in helping people improve vision without surgery through Ortho-K.
Multifocal Contact Lenses
Most people are happy with the vision that multifocal contact lenses provide. Some people however find that they are not seeing as clearly as they would like and may be bothered by glare at night or not being able to see small print.
Another solution for presbyopia may be a monovision or modified monovision fitting of single vision contact lenses.
Family Eye Care also provides general eye care, examinations, and an inventory of eyeglasses and standard contact lenses. We have progressive lenses, special computer lenses for those who spend time on computer, and single vision lenses. Family Eye Care carries over 1,000 frames in our Optical Boutique and most eyeglass prescriptions can be filled on the same day.
