Medical Contact Lenses
Medically Necessary Contact Lenses are contacts that are necessary to rehabilitate vision that is otherwise uncorrectable with spectacles, or to treat degenerative corneal conditions. Examples of eye diseases requiring this modality of treatment are keratoconus, corneal transplants, irregular astigmatism, corneal ectasia, some corneal dystrophys, recurrent corneal erosion, certain dry eye conditions, pellucid marginal degeneration, keratoglobus, etc.
Dr. Hanson has considerable expertise in these types of contact lens fittings and has provided this rehabilitative service for a number of years. He is a referral source to local corneal surgeons who specialize in treating these conditions.
