Routine Soft Contact Lenses
Most patients are familiar with standard soft lenses. These lenses are mass-manufactured in a process called cast molding. The lens materials and parameters are generally limited to fit the average shape, size, and refractive power needs of a normal eye. Due to these limitations standard soft lenses must be carefully selected based on the curvature, size, and physiology the individual’s eye. Though these lenses are highly successful for most individuals with normal corneas, some patients will experience issues with inadequate vision or discomfort due to the limited parameters. This is where custom contact lens option become necessary.
