Contact lenses provide maximum visual comfort in everyday life, at work, at leisure and in sports. We specialize in the fitting of contact lenses and have our own optics department.
Contact lenses are enjoying increasing popularity. No skidding, slipping or irritating spectacle frames, no glass, that gets fogged up.
To really utilise the convenience of these discreet visual aids, it is important to choose the right contact lenses, optimise their fitting and have regular eze checkups. The right contact lenses are those that correspond to the specific eze conditions (corneal geometry, tear film, tear production, etc.).
We recommend contact lenses be fitted using a close cooperation between the ophthalmologist and optometrist or optician. The optometrist or optician is a specialist for the selection of lenses based on optical preconditions. The ophthalmologist assesses the entire eye, particularly with respect to the lens compatibility. Incorrectly or poorly fitted contact lenses are the most common cause of later complications.
In our clinic the selection and fitting of lenses is done using direct colaboration between Dr. Zarth and our optical department. This approach generally works well, but it is particularly advantageous in the fitting of special lenses, such as in the treatment of corneal diseases and for modern high-tech lenses such as multifocal lenses (progressive lenses).
