Contact lenses can be an extremely convenient alternative to traditional eyeglasses. They offer clear, sharp, and comfortable vision, without worrying about damaging a set of frames. But when you’re getting into the world of contact lenses, it seems like the choices can be overwhelming! There are plenty of different choices—like the PosEYEdon® lenses.

The PosEYEdon® contact lenses are a specialty lens that aims to give you clear vision without the drawbacks of other lenses. These scleral lenses are ideal for myopia, astigmatism, dry eye, presbyopia, and more, making them an incredible approach to all kinds of eye conditions. With the PosEYEdon® lenses, you can enjoy clear, sharp vision—whether you’re reading a book or climbing a mountain.

The Basics of Contact Lenses

When it comes to contact lenses, there are plenty of different types. There are daily disposables, weeklies, monthly lenses, and more. Each of these are unique in their own way.

However, these lenses can generally be categorized into 2 main types:

  • Soft contact lenses, made of a silicone hydrogel material. These are designed to be comfortable and moisture-retaining but do not tend to last as long as other options.
  • Rigid gas-permeable lenses, made of a firm, durable material that allows oxygen to reach the eye. These are typically more long-lasting and offer sharper vision, but may take some adaptation.

While some people may prefer softer lenses for their comfort, others prefer rigid lenses for their sharp vision and longevity. The ideal option for you may vary depending on your own unique preferences. But the material isn’t the only thing that matters.

Specialty contact lenses, like the PosEYEdon® lenses, are designed to provide additional benefits—without compromising your vision. PosEYEdon® lenses give the outstanding optics of a rigid lens along with comfort that often surpasses that of soft lenses.

What Are PosEYEdon® Lenses?

The PosEYEdon® lenses are specialty scleral lenses. These are a type of rigid gas-permeable lens designed to rest on the whites of your eyes and arch over the cornea, creating a small reservoir of tears between the lens and your eye.

This means that they don’t just give you clear vision. They also help soothe dry eyes, since they keep a constant reservoir of moisture on your cornea. With a combination of your natural tear film and a gentle saline solution, these lenses keep your eyes protected and hydrated, preventing the inflammation and irritation of dried-out eyes. Those who have battled dryness in traditional soft contact lenses can finally experience comfortable contact lens wear again with custom PosEYEdon® lenses.

The PosEYEdon® lenses aren’t just about giving you clear vision. Because they offer extended comfort, these lenses can give you long-lasting, sharp, and comfortable vision. You can spend more time pursuing your passions and enjoying the activities you love without worrying about contact lens discomfort.

Meanwhile, the PosEYEdon® lenses are custom-made for each wearer based on their unique eye measurements, making them a comfortable fit designed to be secure and stable. They’re less likely to move around since they’re a little larger than most other lenses, and can be used for a wide range of situations to help you maintain clear, comfortable vision. 

Who Should Use PosEYEdon® Lenses?

PosEYEdon® lenses are particularly ideal for people dealing with conditions like:

  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Astigmatism (where the cornea is curved irregularly)
  • Dry eye syndrome (where an imbalance in the tear film causes inflammation and irritation)
  • Corneal damage and scarring
  • Keratoconus

However, while they can be an excellent way to find relief from dry eyes, it’s important to recognize that they don’t address the underlying cause of the condition. The PosEYEdon® lenses should be used in tandem with other dry eye treatments to help you reduce, and prevent, future symptoms.

How to Get PosEYEdon® Lenses

If you think the PosEYEdon® lenses are the right choice for you, it all starts with a visit to an optometrist with experience in fitting these lenses—like our team at Tree City Eyecare.
