CONTACT LENSES WITH PRISM
WHAT ARE CONTACT LENSES WITH PRISM?
Some patients have difficulty seeing and need a prism in their glasses. These patients may have double vision or difficulty using both eyes to work together. The prism moves an image so it can help vision when eyes are not aligned.
Prism can be used in contact lenses as well, but there are limitations. With soft contact lenses, only a certain amount of prism may be put in the lenses. With scleral lenses, many kinds and amounts of prism may be added but the lenses must be perfectly fit to work properly.
The best way to see if contact lenses with prism are an option for you is to have a consultation. We will measure the eyes and determine if you would benefit from this type of technology, and what type of lens we would need to use.
