Many of us will come to a point in our life where we may choose to have Laser related refractive surgery or require some type of other surgical procedure involving our eyes. In some cases results are less than desired so contact lenses are a great way to allow you to see as you did before. If you have an irregular cornea, then Contex lenses may be able to help you.
Unfortunately, many people who go through eye surgery may never see the same again. Contex Gas Permeable contact lenses offer these people a chance to see better. If you have had surgery and can’t see well while wearing your glasses or contact lenses, ask your eyecare practitioner if you are a candidate for Contex lenses.
Whether you were born nearsighted or with astigmatism you may have chosen to have elective Laser surgery. If the results were less than desirable, then you may need to wear a GP contact lens to not only correct but stabilize your vision. The post lasik eye can sometimes cause light rays to focus in different directions. This can cause distorted vision.
Irregular corneas can be visually corrected with custom contact lenses that can provide clear vision that you once enjoyed. Only your eyecare practitioner can determine what lens design is best for you.
Irregular corneas can be corrected with glasses or soft contact lenses, but they cannot offer visual stability as can the GP lens. Depending on your prescription, you may need to wear your GP contact lenses all day. If not all day, at least when you are at school, work or doing things such as driving or reading that require clear vision.
