At Kittery Eye, we take the time to get to know you, your eye care history, and your vision needs. Our doctors provide the expert care, advice, options, and follow up you need whether you are a new patient or an existing one.

Kittery Eye Answers Your Eye Care Questions
Q. Who is a good candidate to wear digital ophthalmic lenses? Why? Are there particular patients who these lenses are especially useful for, and why?
A. All patients benefit from the improvements in technology of free form designs. They all will experience crisper vision with better contrast. The real benefits are the ability to add custom measurements taking into account how the lenses will be worn. Digital lenses factor in how far the lenses are worn from your eye, the tilt of the frame, and how curved to your face the frame is. All of this is calculated into surfacing your lens specifically for you, in the frame you choose. This process takes an already good lens and adds the “wow” effect. These lenses are very helpful for patients who in the past were unable to wear standard progressive designs or have higher prescriptions, because of the optimized vision in areas that were previously unusable due to aberration.

Focus Your Attention On These Key Areas
Scleral Contact Lenses
If you are looking to wear contact lenses but have always had problems with comfort or have been told you’ll never be able to wear contact lenses because of an irregularly shaped cornea or other eye problem, it may be time to look into a type of contact lens known as a “scleral lens.”
Scleral contact lenses are large diameter rigid gas permeable contact lenses designed to pass over the cornea entirely, resting comfortably on the white of your eye, also known as the sclera. This allows scleral lenses to essentially replace the irregular surface of the cornea with a perfectly formed optical surface, giving you the kind of perfectly crisp vision you may not even be able to accomplish at all with eyeglasses or other forms of vision correction. This extra area also allows the lens to be a liquid reservoir to provide extra comfort for those who otherwise may have comfort issues with regular contact lenses.

Why do I Need Regular Eye Exam?
While most people schedule regular check-ups with doctors and dentists, many are not aware of the importance of an annual visit to the eye doctor. Regular eye exams can be the key to the early detection and treatment of emerging vision problems, eye diseases, and a number of other health issues. When you come to a Kittery Eye optometrist for an eye exam, you will receive comprehensive service designed to find and correct any vision or eye issue. Don’t take good vision for granted, schedule an appointment today!
