Prosthetic Contact Lenses San Diego

Prosthetic contact lenses can significantly improve the cosmetic appearance of a disfigured or scarred eye, whether from previous trauma or serious eye infection. An initial examination can help your eye doctor determine the likelihood of a desirable outcome with a prosthetic contact lens.

In some cases, it’s possible to obtain a satisfactory result just with disposable cosmetic contact lenses. In other situations, if the eye shape will not provide on-eye stability of the prosthetic contact lens, you will be referred elsewhere for what’s called a prosthetic scleral shell. If your eye has been removed (enucleated), you will also be directed elsewhere for a custom ocular prosthesis.

A comprehensive eye exam will help you determine what type of contact lens is best for your vision, comfort, and overall eye health. Contact us today to set up an appointment with our eye experts!
