Treating Ocular Trauma with Specialty Contacts in Charlotte

- Where Advanced Technology Meets Compassionate Care

Ocular trauma encompasses a broad spectrum of injuries, ranging from mild abrasions to severe injuries that can lead to vision loss. Causes include accidents, foreign object penetration, blunt force trauma, and chemical exposure. Swift and appropriate intervention is crucial to minimize damage and improve outcomes.

Our doctors are experienced in cases of ocular trauma, and Charlotte Contact Lens Institute features advanced technology, longer than normal exam slots, and one-on-one interaction with the doctor. A common treatment option in cases of ocular trauma is a scleral contact lens.

We utilize advanced and specialized technology which collects up to 240,000 unique data points to design a fully customized scleral contact lens. Customized scleral contact lenses work well when ocular trauma has occurred, because the lens vaults entirely over the cornea without adding any pressure to it, while allowing the cornea to remain hydrated for ultimate healing and comfort.
