Specialty Contact Lens Center

Specialty Contact Lens Center

Certain medical conditions can make contact lens fitting, achieving good vision and comfortable contact lens wear more challenging. These conditions may include:

  • Keratoconus
  • Irregular Corneas
  • Severe Dry Eye
  • Post-Lasik Complications
  • Corneal Transplant Complications
  • Ocular Graft vs. Host Disease
  • Steven-Johnson Syndrome
  • Sjogren’s Disease
  • Pellucid Degeneration 
There are many custom sophisticated contact lens options available to you. Your initial visit consists of a medical exam, corneal topography, digital slit lamp imaging, and a specialty contact lens fitting. We utilize modern contact lens designs and fitting techniques with an ultra-high speed, high resolution scanner to achieve the best design possible for your eyes. In order to achieve an appropriate fit, your appointments will be longer than the traditional eye examination. Several adjustments of your lenses to optimize your fit should be expected.

How is low vision diagnosed?

The optometrists at Dr. Dean S. Steinberger, OD & Associates diagnose low vision during comprehensive eye exams. The doctor either finds signs of a contributing eye disease or, during your visual acuity testing and retinoscopy, they discover that your sight isn’t entirely correctable with glasses or contact lenses.
How is low vision treated?
If you have low vision, the optometrists at Dr. Dean S. Steinberger, OD & Associates offer a variety of vision aids to help you see clearly enough to maintain your daily responsibilities and hobbies. For example, you may benefit from specialized magnifying devices to help you read or see a computer screen clearly. The optometrists at Dr. Dean S. Steinberger, OD & Associates also offer comprehensive rehabilitation programs to help you regain your independence and improve your quality of life. For example, if you develop a blind spot, your doctor can help you identify your next best point of vision and learn to use that spot to see as clearly as possible. The doctors also train you to use low vision aids, so you feel comfortable and confident with the equipment. If you’re concerned about low vision, either for yourself or a loved one, call Dr. Dean S. Steinberger, OD & Associates or schedule a consultation online today for comprehensive assessments and customized treatments. Learn more about low vision.

Eaglet Eye

The Eaglet-Eye ESP offers more features than any previous profiler. Our revolutionary topographer is the first to offer profiling, not only of the cornea, but also right across the limbus and over a large portion of the sclera. But it isn’t just the unprecedented 20mm diameter of measurement that’s causing such excitement in the world of optometry. The measuring accuracy of the ESP is such that practitioners can now generate 3D ‘height maps’ of the eye’s surface in astonishing detail.

Rigid Gas Permeable Lenses

Gas permeable lenses are made of a non-pliable breathable material that retain their shape on the eye. This unique feature allows the contacts to replace the irregular surface of the eye with a smooth, uniform surface to achieve improved vision over soft contact lenses and eye glasses. Occasionally a technique called “piggybacking” may be used to improve comfort. This technique utilizes a soft contact lens on the cornea to cushion the gas permeable lens. Your doctors are highly trained in different designs for an optimal fit.

Hybrid Contact Lenses

Hybrid contact lenses are a technological breakthrough that combines two types of contact lens materials – a rigid gas permeable center and a soft lens skirt- into one unique lens. The soft skirt provides all-day comfort and the rigid center delivers superior optics to improve your visual experience. SynergEyes lenses are the first FDA cleared hybrid contact lenses specifically designed for keratoconus vision correction.

Scleral Lenses

Scleral contact lenses are a custom designed larger diameter lens that vaults over the cornea and rests on the less sensitive white sclera. The unique design allows the vaulted section to be filled with a fluid reservoir which acts as a liquid bandage to help treat extremely dry or diseased corneas. This unique feature makes this device a Prosthetic Replacement of the Ocular Surface Ecosystem (PROSE). Scleral lenses may be used to improve vision and reduce pain and light sensitivity for people suffering from a growing number of disorders.
