Contact Lenses for Hard-to-Fit Eyes
If you have had trouble wearing contact lenses or have been told you're not a good candidate for contacts, you simply may have eyes that are "hard to fit."

Contact lens specialists are typically more aware of the latest contact lens technology and options than a general eye doctor.

Many also use advanced equipment that can measure your cornea more precisely to achieve the best contact lens fit possible.

Paul Kuhwald is the second generation of contact lens specialists who have adapted all kinds of materials in order to fit difficult corneas and unusual eyes.

If you’ve given up on the idea of contacts, don't lose all hope just yet.
