Cameron Optometry is one of the leading contact lens practices in the UK and as a result, we’re often among the first to get to try new lenses. Yesterday we became the first Private practice in the UK to be given access to the new ICD 16.5 lens.
This lens is really designed for people with unusual eyes and it quite cleverly vaults right over the top of all the central irregularities that normally cause difficulty in contact lens fitting and comes to rest gently on the least sensitive and most regular portion of the eye – the sclera.
I heard about these lenses at the recent AAO Meeting in Phoenix so it’s really exciting to get hold of this lens. It is mainly for specialist purposes like keratoconus, but they are suitable for people with regular shaped eyes too. This promises to be a fantastic addition to the range of lenses we can offer people especially people who have never been able to get contacts to fit previously.
Heather has already had a shot with one patient the day we got it, but Ian and Gillian are still waiting for a go!
