Contact Lenses

Contact Lenses Pittsburgh, PA

Our doctors at Lappen Eye Care are also contact lens specialists, trained to find the right contact lenses for even the most difficult-to-fit contact lens wearer. We conduct the most in-depth contact lens examinations and evaluations in the industry, and we have experience working with the new generation of contact lens options.

Contact Lens Examinations

In order to fit you with the proper contact lenses, we must gather information above and beyond what we learn from a routine eye examination. This includes special tests such as corneal topography, tear film evaluation and wavefront measurements to determine the exact curvature of the front of your eye and see if you have any eye health issues that need to be considered during the contact lens fitting.

Choosing The Right Contact Lenses

Multifocal, daily use and specialty contact lenses such as the Synergeyes family of lenses offer many new choices for those patients who could not or would not wear contact lenses in the past. Astigmatism, chronic dry eye, refractive surgery or corneal trauma no longer prevent patients from choosing contact lenses as the primary mode of vision correction. Advances in material technology and design have increased the effectiveness, comfort and convenience of contact lenses. Even if you have been unsuccessful in the past, the doctors at Lappen Eye Care will take the time and have the expertise to find a contact lens solution for you. There are many options, and we can find the choice that fits your vision needs and lifestyle. Contact us today to schedule an eye exam and contact lens fitting.
