Contact Lens Intolerance

Some people give up wearing contact lenses because of dryness they feel when wearing soft contact lenses.  Tears serve as lubrication to the eyes and can change during allergy season or as we get older.

Some people have worn gas permeable lenses for many years but become sensitive to how they feel.  Fortunately, there are lenses that can address each of these problems.  Scleral lenses don’t have water, so they don’t dry out as a soft lens does.  Scleral lenses sit on the sclera, the white part of the eye and usually feel much better.

Dear Valued Patient,

At Family Eye Care, the health and safety of our patients and employees is our top concern.

Our office has a long-standing practice of disinfecting all areas of our office throughout the day, and all clinic areas are disinfected prior to every patient seen.

As always during the peak of flu season, and with the growing concerns around the Coronavirus, we have taken extra measures to increase frequent cleaning and have provided additional training and precautions to our staff to help keep their health and yours safe.

As a reminder, if you have fallen ill, have traveled abroad, or had close contact with someone who has traveled abroad within the past 14 days and are due to be seen for an appointment, please let our office know. We will be happy to change your appointment to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you.

Family Eye Care Team
