Specialty Contact Lenses

At Mission Eye Care, we specialize in fitting complex corneas. We are always on the leading edge of technological advancements and are proud to be the only clinic in Western Canada to fit the EyePrint Prosthetic contact lens for diseased and irregular corneas. This lens is 3D printed from a custom mold taken of the front of the eye. We are one of the few non-university clinics in North America to offer this specialized lens that is fast becoming a superior alternative to the Boston PROSE lens.

We are also one of the only clinics in Alberta that fit the entire family of SynergEyes hybrid lenses for keratoconus, post corneal transplant, and ectasia from failed refractive surgery. We also fit specialty gas permeable lenses such as Rose-K, Custom Scleral, and other post-surgical designs. For early keratoconus, we have comfortable and convenient silicone hydrogel soft lens options such as the Kerasoft IC.

If you would like to know what is involved with a complex corneal contact lens fitting, please download the pdf form on this page. If you are booking a consultation with one of our specialty lens eye doctors, please print and bring the signed form with you to your appointment.

Our highest rate of success for fitting keratoconus and other irregular cornea patients has come with scleral and hybrid lenses that give vision and comfort not possible with conventional rigid lens or piggyback designs. Scleral lenses are large diameter rigid lenses that sit on the white part of the eye and vault over the irregularities in the cornea, thus providing good vision and comfort. We take topographical maps of the exact irregularities and then custom design a lens that provides the ideal correction.

SynergEyes Hybrid lenses are a combination of a soft skirt which offers all day comfort with a “breathable” rigid center portion providing crisp, clear vision…even at night. Please contact us if you would like more information on the latest lenses for keratoconus. If you are a patient who has been newly fit with these lenses and would like to review some of the in-office training, please click the links below.
