Newport Eye Care is the premier contact lens specialty practices in Maine and offers a full range of standard and advanced contact lenses.We use advanced diagnostic technology to select the lenses that will keep your eyes healthy while optimizing your visual performance.
It all begins with the most comprehensive medical eye examination to identify any underlying eye health issues, such as dry eye or ocular surface disease. We assess the patient’s visual challenges and the many lifestyle and work-related issues that may bring them about. There are many different contact lenses available, all offering distinct advantages. We then match the appropriate lens to each patient’s specific situations and needs. The contact lenses prescribed come from all major manufacturers, as well as from private custom labs for those patients who have had poor success with prior contact lens fittings.
CORNEAL TOPOGRAPHY WITH IPROFILER
Newport Eye Care employs technology for the precise fitting of contact lenses found only in the most prestigious eye care practices. Every contact lens patient has a complete mapping of cornea using a Zeiss Corneal Topographer to ensure the most accurate fitting of their contacts lenses
Here at Newport Eye Care, we are proud to offer scleral lenses for our patients.
Scleral contact lenses are often used for people who are unable to use traditional contact lenses. There are plenty of eye conditions where traditional lenses simply won’t work.
Scleral lenses get their name because they cover the whole eye instead of just a portion of the cornea. They rest on the sclera (the white part of your eye). Since they are much larger than traditional lenses, they are more stable on eyes and don’t get dislodged easily.
Scleral lenses are also more comfortable—once you put them in! For this reason, they can also be used on sensitive eyes or irregularly shaped corneas. Scleral lenses can also be used by people who suffer from dry eyes.
Scleral lenses can be more expensive than traditional lenses because they are custom-made to fit your eyes. It takes special tools and imaging devices to measure your eyes and order your lenses. Vision insurance can help with these extra costs, and we will be happy to discuss payments at your visit.
If you have any questions about scleral lenses or if you want to set up an appointment to try them, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (207) 355-3333.
