MeeraSight - Contact Lens

Contact lenses, if you need them, can make everyday tasks possible. Because they are invisible, they are a popular alternative to glasses. However, they can also be too big, too small, too weak, or too strong; adding more problems or even injuries to your eyes .Being fit with contact lenses is not a onetime purchase by you, but an on-going commitment from us.

We at MeeraSight perform a comprehensive eye examination and then do an additional contact lens fitting to determine the appropriate lens for each individual’s eyes.  Each brand of contact lenses are made from different materials and depending on the lens parameters fits differently from eye to eye.  A proper fit depends on each patient’s refractive power, corneal steepness, amount of astigmatism, and many other factors.  Only after wearing your lenses for several weeks can we are certain we have achieved the best fit for your eyes, so your follow-up visits are very important.  

We fit and prescribe contact lenses to correct a number of vision problems, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The use of contact lenses is not only limited to refractive errors. Specialized contact lenses are used to improve your vision and to treat many eye diseases. Some of these specialized contact lenses available with us are:

  • Keratoconus- Rigid Gas permeable lenses, RoseK lenses, Scleral lenses.

  • Ocular surface Diseases or Severe Dry eye- Scleral lenses/MiniScleral lenses, PROSE lenses.

  • Contact lenses for post surgical eyes like post LASIK, post keratoplasty lenses.

  • Multifocal contact lenses.

  • Cosmetic contact lenses.

  • Bandage contact lenses.

 

CONTACT LENS FOLLOW-UP

 

Contact lenses are medical devices worn on the eye that can potentially cause serious eye health complications.  Some of these more serious complications may lead to permanent loss of vision.  This is why it is extremely important that contact lens wearers have evaluations at least every year.


Frequently the difference between success and failure for a contact lens patient is the care received after the lenses are fit.
