Specialty Contact Lenses

Keratoconus and Scleral Lenses

If your eyes have a conical shape, this scatters the light as it comes in, creating blurred or distorted vision, increased sensitivity to light, glare and mild eye irritation. This eye condition is known as Keratoconus. However, even with this condition, you may be able to wear contact lenses called scleral lenses that are specially suited to address this issue.

If your vision still isn't satisfactory or astigmatism contacts just haven't made the cut, these are specially designed & outperform any contact lens you've ever worn and have been used for those with keratoconus or highly irregular cornea.

Is There a Difference Between Dry Eyes and Red Eyes?

There are times that your eyes may be red and other times they may be dry as well. Persistent dryness, scratchiness and a burning sensation on your eyes are common symptoms of dry eye syndrome. These symptoms alone may be enough for your eye doctor to diagnose dry eye syndrome. Chronic dry eye can cause the surface of the eye to become inflamed and irritated, making your eyes look red. Your eye doctor at Monji Optometry can help with treatment options.

Progressive Frames or LASIK: Which Would You Choose?

It happens to everyone: nearsightedness (or presbyopia) sets in at about age 40.

How Does Polarized Eyewear Prevent Dry Eyes

UV rays harm your vision and skin but with polarized sunwear you get the benefit of blocking UV rays and preventing dry eyes. Dry eyes are usually more sensitive to sun light than normal eyes and it's therefore recommended to protect them when you are outside, even on cloudy days. Ask your Monji Optometry eye doctor about polarized sunglasses today!
