Special Eyes Need Special Contact Lenses

At Bettner Vision, we know that every eye is unique. That’s why we carry a wide range of specialty contact lenses made especially for your one of a kind eyes.

Thanks to advancements in contact lens technology, specialty contact lenses make it possible for most patients who wear contact lenses to do so comfortably.

From comprehensive contact lens exams and fittings to our selection of specialty contact lens styles and brands, the Bettner Vision team will do everything we can to find the right contacts to suit your unique eyes and lifestyle.

Type of Specialty Contact Lenses

In addition to traditional soft lenses and gas permeable lenses, we offer the following type of specialty contact lenses:

Multifocal contact lenses feature more than one prescription per lens, providing a gradient of vision from near to far. Multifocal contact lenses are typically prescribed to patients with presbyopia, an ocular condition that affects near vision as we age.

Toric contact lenses are specialty contact lenses designed for patients with astigmatism. Toric lenses are available as both soft and rigid gas permeable varieties.

Since toric lenses have different prescriptions along the horizontal and vertical axes of the lens, they must stay steady and in place in order to provide clear vision. As such, toric lenses are weighted to ensure they don’t rotate throughout the day.

Hybrid contact lenses are made using a gas permeable center surrounded by a soft skirt portion. This offers the crisp vision of a gas permeable lens with the comfort of a soft contact lens.

We offer the Duette hybrid lens, which works best for patients with irregular-shaped corneas and some amount of astigmatism.

Scleral lenses are larger-sized lenses that vault over the entire cornea and rests on the white part of the eye, or sclera. These are perfect for patients with keratoconus, dry eye, and astigmatism. For more detailed information, refer to our Keratoconus and Scleral Lens Institute page.

Corneal refractive therapy (CRT) contact lenses, such as Paragon CRT® contact lenses are used in ortho-k (orthokeratology) treatment. These gas permeable lenses gently reshape the cornea while you sleep. Upon awakening, CRT lenses are removed and patients can enjoy clear vision all day without the need for daytime contacts or glasses.

Ortho-k may be effective for some children, managing myopia progression and helping keep their prescription low.

Paragon CRT® contact lenses are the first FDA approved orthokeratology lenses for extended overnight wear. At Bettner Vision.

Our Specialty Services

At Bettner Vision, our keratoconus and scleral lens institute specializes in diagnosing and treating patients with keratoconus – a progressive eye disorder that results in the thinning of the cornea.

Keratoconus & Scleral Lens Institute

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine that specializes in eye anatomy, physiology, and diseases of the eye.

Ophthalmology

Vision therapy, sometimes known as orthoptics, is akin to physical therapy for the eyes and brain. It is a non-surgical, customizable set of exercises and activities that aim to resolve symptoms that interfere with visual abilities, motor skills, and brain function.

Pediatric & Binocular Vision Therapy

Our eyes and brain are inseparably linked. Impulses continuously travelling back and forth via the optic nerve ultimately result in what we see and how we see it.
