  • Astigmatism is a condition that causes the front part of the eye to bend or bulge.
  • Keratoconus, an uncommon condition that makes wearing contact lenses highly uncomfortable.
  • Presbyopia is a condition that is usually found in patients over the age of 40. It creates difficulty in focuses on objects that are close to the eyes.
  • Dry eyes can be exacerbated by wearing contacts especially if the eyes are also itchy and inflamed.
  • Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis (GPC)
