EyePrint PRO for Specialty Contact Lenses in Dallas
As your cornea lens specialist in Dallas, the eye doctors at the Cornea Lens Institute offer the latest advanced contact lens fitting options for our patients. EyePrint PRO is one such option to create specialty contact lenses that are custom fit to your eye’s natural surface irregularities. If standard contact lens options won’t improve your vision to the best it can be, our optometrists can use a technology like EyePrint PRO to help.
What is EyePrint PRO?
EyePrint PRO creates high-tech impressions of your eye’s surface. Every human eye is different and uniquely shaped, even the left and right eye lens in the same individual are each unique. As certified EyePrint practitioners, our optometrists use this innovative 3D eye scan (part of the EyePrint PRO system), to create a detailed copy (an impression) of the front of your eye. This impression is the model for your perfect contact lens.
Creating the EyePrint PRO Lens (or Prosthesis)
The topographical impressions of your eyes are sent to the manufacturer to create a transparent prosthetic scleral covering (contact lens) that matches It precisely. The EyePrint PRO company works with our cornea lens specialist in Dallas to ensure that the new lens is ideal for your needs.
Fitting Your New Specialty Contact Lenses
The completed lenses are sent back to our optometry office for a fitting. We then have you return to try the lenses and we test to make sure the fit is correct. The newly-created shell prosthesis (a clear contact lens) closely fits your eye’s specific contours. The specialty contact lens (also referred to as a shell) can then be used to protect your eye or correct the vision in hard-to-fit patients with eye disease, complicated visual problems or unique ocular shapes.
Now, ocular irregularities and corneal disease may no longer keep you from wearing contact lenses. The entire process, from scanning the eye to fitting the completed lenses, takes only a few days in most cases.
