Specialty Contacts

Specialty Contacts

Some patients require more than just glasses to provide them with optimal vision. Specialty contact lenses can unlock patients’ visual potential by increasing clarity and improving their activities of daily living.

Dr. Ruiz focused on the area of specialty contacts during his time at the Illinois College of Optometry. Speciality lenses can be used in a variety of different ways such as the following:

-Improving vision with scleral lenses in patients with keratoconus

-Improving vision with Orth-keratology lenses for a certain prescription range of patients to make them glasses free after 2 weeks

-Fitting with multi-focal contact lenses to remove the need for readers

Feel free to ask/inquire about these types of lenses with Dr. Ruiz!
