Complex & Specialty Contacts for Cornea Problems

At Baltimore Washington Eye Center, contact lenses are an important option for patients with cornea and eye surface problems such as irregular astigmatism from diseases and conditions including keratoconus, cornea transplants, bulging and thinning of the cornea from ectasia, corneal scarring from trauma or infection. In addition specialty contact lenses can be very helpful for patients suffering from dry eyes from conditions such as Sjörgrens Syndrome and Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS)  

Our contact lens specialists use a wide variety of clinical tools, techniques and lens types including:

  • Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Contact Lenses with large overall diameters
  • Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Contact Lenses with unique interior shapes and geometries
  • Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Contact Lenses with a “semi-scleral” design that fits beyond the corneal diameter
  • Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) Contact Lenses with a “scleral” design that fits on the sclera itself

Our eye doctors are specialists in using the Custom Stable™ suite of contact lenses for addressing the complex fitting challenges of cornea disease, surgery and ocular surface disease.

If you or someone you know suffers from keratoconus or other ectasia or “corneal bulging disorder,” has an irregular corneal shape from a corneal transplant, corneal degeneration, dystrophy or scarring or suffers from ocular surface disease Baltimore Washington Eye Center contact lens specialists are here to help with complex fitting of specialty lenses.
