THERAPEUTIC CONTACT LENS SERVICES
Dr. Amanda Kopczyk is Metro Eye’s therapeutic contact lens expert, as she specializes in contact lens fittings suited to numerous corneal abnormalities. Her areas of proficiency include keratoconus, irregular astigmatism, scleral and gas permeable (RGP) hard contact lens fittings, corneal refractive therapy (CRT) and special fitting procedures related to post refractive surgery and dry eye issues.
CRT- Freedom From Daytime Glasses & Contacts
Corneal refractive therapy is a method of nonsurgical vision correction that is increasingly popular among patients who prefer not to wear daytime glasses and contacts.
This procedure is an attractive alternative to laser eye surgery as it is noninvasive, reversible and involves the fitting of specially designed contact lenses, to be worn only overnight. During sleep, the lenses gently reshape the patient’s corneas to achieve clear vision throughout their waking hours.
CRT is also clinically proven to slow the progression of childhood myopia, which continues to be a rising concern worldwide.
Scleral Lens Fittings
Patients with certain eye disorders or injuries may require scleral contact lenses to reduce their pain, lessen light sensitivity and enable them to experience clear vision. Dr. Kopczyk fully customizes scleral lenses with specialized measuring instruments, accommodating the exact parameters required to treat numerous complex ocular issues while ensuring the sharpest visual acuity possible.
Patients with this ocular abnormality experience blurred vision and increased light sensitivity due to thinning and bulging of their corneas. Mild to moderate cases are commonly treated with therapeutic scleral contact lenses, since only advanced cases of keratoconus may require a corneal transplant.
