16 Jul Medically Necessary Contacts
Whether you’ve been following along since we were a concrete box or you’ve just recently discovered us, one factor is and forever will be readily apparent – I LOVE MY JOB! I love meeting our neighbors and making new connections, helping individuals solve problems, and seeing the smile on a persons face who hates glasses as they put on the first pair they ever loved. We have the ability to change lives through both medicine and fashion and we are able to help change the way we view ourselves. This puts optometrists in a unique position and it is one of the main reasons I chose to become an optometrist. The combination of medical and retail all under one roof was a huge draw.
A lesser side that lacks the glamour fall within our contact lens department. I love fitting medically necessary contact lenses. There are a variety of reasons for them being medically necessary, whether it be corneal ectasia, keratoconus, scarring, or other injuries or diseases that require a specialty lens to correct. We even do soft prosthetic devices with black backs, prosthetic pupils and iris’ color matched to your seeing eye. The options are limitless but the outcomes are all the same – often life changing experiences.
These lenses are equally both difficult and rewarding for patient and doctor. Whether you have high astigmatism, corneal disease issues, or just want to get out of your glasses, we have options for you. From soft spherical to multifocal scleral lenses, we do it all. Most vision insurances cover medically necessary contact lenses in full as well. Give us a call today to set up your consultation and we can work on regaining maximal vision!
