Complete service for contact lenses
Contact lenses lie directly on the eye and - like glasses - are a visual aid. A distinction is made between hard and soft contact lenses. Most forms of defective vision, such as near-sightedness, far-sightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia (age-induced far-sightedness), can be corrected with contact lenses. Even extremely complicated forms of defective vision, such as keratoconus (softening of the corneal tissue with axial-symmetrical optical loss) or keratoglobus (congenital spherical curvature and thinning of the cornea), can be successfully corrected with contact lenses – often more successfully than with glasses.
During preparation for surgery to correct defective vision, the question is often raised of how the patient can imagine the result after surgery. In these cases, the elegant option exists of simulating the desired remaining correction by means of contact lenses before the intervention.
The range of services offered by LASER VISTA also includes an appointment for persons who wear contact lenses or who are interested in contact lenses. Contact lenses are becoming increasingly well tolerated. Production techniques and the possibilities of even more precise measurements of the eye are constantly being developed further. In parallel to this development we have also been able to extend considerably our consultation and treatment options when fitting contact lenses.
The LASER VISTA contact lens appointment is available to you for all aspects of care. We also clarify which of the following lenses are best suited to your form of defective vision:
Because our ophthalmologists and optometrists work together in an interdisciplinary manner, we possess a wide range of experience in lens fitting and aftercare following surgical, traumatic (caused by accident), paediatric and pre-operative problems. We run a centre of competence for special lenses in the case of:
Complex corneal shapes also represent a particular challenge for the future, too. However, special lenses can today be fitted in an increasing number of cases for which there were no solutions until recently.
