Love for the Lens
Humans have experimented with a visual tool that enhances vision and is so discreet that it is practically invisible for centuries. Early innovations achieved this but comfort, convenience and hygiene was an issue. Modern day contact lenses are ultra-comfortable, super-convenient and absolutely hygienic, oftentimes giving better vision.
Technological developments and scientific understanding of the optical system and its interaction with the biology of the eye by Optometry have helped evolve contact lens dispensing into a modern art. The art is in making contact lens use so effortless that the wearers rarely feel that they are using anything external in on their eyes.
Advancements help Optometrist fit contact lenses for complicated spectacle numbers like cylindrical (toric contact lenses), for distance and near vision together (multi-focal or progressive contact lenses).
Colored (cosmetic) contact lenses in plano and with power allow the wearers the liberty to express their unique fashion-forward style.
Prosthetic contact lenses can be used to conceal damaged eyes or different colored eyes. One should adopt disposable contact lenses that ensure excellent hygiene and safety.
At R. Kumar, we continue the legacy of fitting Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP or semi-soft) lenses for complicated corneal conditions. We also dispense Rose-K lenses for keratoconus.
