5 Reasons You Might Have a Hard Time Finding the Right Contact Lenses, Kalispell, Montana

Unfortunately, many people are told they are not a good candidate for contact lenses, when actually, they often just have eyes that are “hard to fit.” If this is something you’ve been told in the past, you should know there have been many advances made in lens technology to accommodate practically any eye type.

At Dolan Family Vision in Kalispell, MT, their eye doctor and staff provide advanced eye care services and are trained to help individuals with specific eye conditions or lifestyle needs find the perfect contact lenses for their eyes.

5 Reasons You Might Have A Hard Time Finding The Right Contact Lenses

1. Keratoconus

This is an eye disorder that causes the cornea of the eye to bulge out, forming a cone shape. When this occurs, the cornea thins and begins to deflect light. This typically results in blurry or double vision, nearsightedness, astigmatism, and light sensitivity.

2. Astigmatism

contact-lenses-kalispell-mtLike nearsightedness and farsightedness, astigmatism is a refractive error. This means the eye does not focus light correctly, and, in this case, light is not spread evenly across the retina. Usually, distorted and blurred vision will occur as a result.

3. Dry Eyes

There are several underlying causes of dry eye syndrome, including age and certain medications. While most symptoms can be managed successfully, it is still a lifelong issue for most people.

4. Allergic Conjunctivitis

This eye disorder occurs when the conjunctiva, or the membrane covering the white part of the eye, becomes inflamed due to an allergy. Although allergens can vary, most people develop this issue as a result of hay fever.

5. Presbyopia

As the eye ages, it has a harder time focusing clearly on objects. Most people begin to experience presbyopia around the age of 40, as the hardening of their lenses causes their eyes to focus light behind the retinas instead of on them.

If you have any of these or another eye disorder and want to wear contact lenses, you should know it is not impossible.
