Specialized Lenses

There are circumstances where common toric, spherical, or multi-focal lenses do not suffice to correct vision to its fullest potential.  The reason for this may vary and Dr. Silva is an expert in determining what those reasons are.  Corneal topography is crucial tool in determining what those issues may be such as Keratoconus.   Keratoconus is when the cornea has a thin area which bulges out like a cone causing light to scatter and vision becomes out of focus. 

Through many years of experience and in combination with corneal mapping technology, Dr. Silva is able to fit you into a lens that will give you the clearest vision possible. Techniques in insertion and removal of your specialized lenses will be taught, giving you confidence and soon you will discover that it has become second nature.  Dr. Silva and his staff are always here to help you through this process and are more than happy to answer any of your questions.  For your convenience, you can find videos on our webpage teaching you how to insert and remove your specialty lenses.
