Specialty Contact Lenses

At Roholt Vision Institute we are very excited to be able to offer specialty contact lens fittings with Dr. Nicholas Lawrence.   A patient who is unable to get good vision or comfort out of a soft contact lens or a rigid gas permeable lens may be a good candidate for a contact that actually vaults over the cornea and bears on the white of the eye, called a scleral contact lens.  these lenses can help improve comfort, provide sharper focus, and decrease glare.  patients who needed a scleral lens fit used to be referred to University Hospitals in Cleveland.  Because fitting a scleral contact lens requires multiple visits, these patients had to make several trips to Cleveland.  Dr. Lawrence is now able to help these patients locally with the goal of minimizing cost and the number of visits required to get a good fit.
