Q&A with Dr. Hammond
Dr. Deanna Lyn Hammond Answers Your Eyecare Questions
What are the advantages of scleral lenses?
Scleral lenses offer the comfort of a soft lens with the benefits of a GP lens, and even more so for those with sensitive eyes or irregularly shaped corneas.
Due to the design of scleral lenses vaulting over the cornea and resting only on the less sensitive sclera, these contact lenses are much more comfortable for people with keratoconus.
Our philosophy says certain values are important when you do business with us:
- We believe that it is important to deliver consistent, excellent service to our patients
- We believe that your doctor should be caring, experienced, and progressive
- We believe that the frames and lenses that you purchase should be of high quality
- We believe that patients want a broad range of services available to them at a location and time that is convenient for them
All of the member optometrists of First Eye Care support our Vision Made Clear philosophy. Our goal is to consistently implement these values into our day-to-day operations and to continue to produce successful practices filled with happy patients.
