Description

Introduction The most common reason for prescribing soft contact lenses, both traditional hydrogels and newer silicone-hydrogels, is for the correction of ametropia (refractive error). There are, however, a multitude of other uses for these clinically versatile products. While GP lenses and newer hybrids are customarily the preferred modality for a variety of corneal irregularities and their attendant refractive disorders, many patients have difficulty with adaptation and/or a satisfactory fitting outcome cannot always be achieved. Newer and better soft lens designs providing a more optimal physiological environment make these lenses an increasingly viable and successful option for patients and practitioners alike. Eyecare providers should be well versed in these alternative uses of soft contact lenses so that patients with special needs can be better served or referred for appropriate management.

Objectives

Objectives
The practitioner will gain insight into the versatility of modern soft contact lenses through a survey of the variety of visual, cosmetic, and functional secondary (special) uses for which they may be prescribed. Conditions related to ocular disfigurement, corneal morphological abnormalities, and visual deficiencies will be discussed as they pertain to soft lens selection and design. Knowledge of the more common conditions and readily available and applicable lens designs will be acquired.
