Contact lenses can be part of treatment in case of myopia and high level hypermetropia, anisometropia, astigmatism combined with amblyopia. Unlike the visual correction with glasses contact lenses don’t cause optical distortions on retina which makes treatment of amblyopia more effective. Contact lenses for vision correction can be used by children in the age of 3-4 years and even earlier in individual cases.
We can select contact lenses of any complexity: from standard ones to the individually tailored solutions.
If a continuous occlusion is necessary and adhesive occluder causes psychological discomfort we can suggest you occluding contact lens that reduces vision on the eye that sees better.
Selection of contact lenses in Yasny Vzor pediatric eye clinics is made only after full ophthalmic examination with a detailed examination of optical media and eye fundus along with examination of lacrimal apparatus. If there are no counterindications the doctor selects contact lenses. During the appointment at our pediatric ophthalmologists – specialists in contact lens vision correction – patients are shown how to put the lenses on and off; the child makes every step and tries everything under the doctor’s surveillance. Of course, the doctor corrects all mistakes. As a rule the personal routine of handling the lenses will be established after 5-7 days of exercise. You can also order contact lenses during the appointment in our clinics.
You need to remove contact lenses 24 hours before the ophthalmic examination (visual acuity test)!
