Some medical eye conditions that prevent patients from achieving good vision can benefit from very specialized contact lenses. This small group of patients need to be skillfully fit with medically necessary contact lenses.
Conditions Requiring Medical Lenses
The most common conditions are corneal irregularities due to either Keratoconus, (a corneal degeneration that causes a gradual bulging of the cornea into the shape of a cone) or unsuccessful refractive surgeries like Radial Keratotomy and LASIK. Other patients that benefit from medically necessary contact lenses are those patients with a significant amount of anisometropia (a large difference between the prescription in the right and left eyes).
Lesnick Optical uses a combination of advanced digital corneal mapping and the latest in lens material and design to create the best visual outcome for each of these patients. If one of our Doctors determines you have a condition that would benefit from this specialty fitting, our staff will contact your insurance company to obtain prior authorization due to a medical condition. In most cases, the entire amount of the fitting and the contact lenses will be covered.
