Contact lenses are now available in most prescriptions for nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and even bifocal corrections. During the last 5 to 10 years new contact lens polymers and designs have become available that allow us to make successes out of previous contact lens failures.
Single use and one day contacts now allow those with allergic and sensitive eyes to wear contacts comfortably again. Dr. Kay specializes in hard to fit prescriptions and has fit hundreds of patients over the years that were told they couldn’t wear contacts.

The fitting properties of a lens are determined by several factors including lens curvature, diameter, and power. The contact must fit well enough to center properly but not so tight as to prevent an adequate oxygen supply to the cornea. Considerable professional judgment is required in obtaining the best fit.
Your desire to wear contacts must be great enough to get you through the normal adaptation and learning period. In more difficult prescriptions it may also mean multiple fitting visits in our office.
You must adhere to the prescribed schedules, cleaning procedures, and replacement cycles for you to have a sucessful experience in contact lens wear.
There are many excellent quality contact lenses on the market today for a variety of vision problems. Each brand of lenses has unique features, and it is important to understand there is not one brand that is best for all wearers.
Our job is to know which kind is going to work in your particular case.
