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 examination with our doctor can 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 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.

Our comprehensive eye exam can determine if a prosthetic contact lens is right for you.
