Can your eye contacts have a different base curve and diameter?


Answer by  mb (5482)

Yes. All the bilateral symetery organs of the human body (eyes, ears, nostrils, lungs, breasts, gonads etc) look identical but actually have very small differences. For example most peoples eyes are not actually level, usually one is slightly higher than the other.

Eye contacts can be of different base cure and diameter. This is to improve the fittng of your lens on the eye. Lenses varies for every patient and measurements are made first by the assigned person to ensure the patient's comfort when wearing the lens.

Yes absolutely, Every individuals eyes are unique to them. Some people have stigmas so in that case their contacts may need a different shape and curve to work for them

Yes, one eye can have a base curve of 8. 4 14. 0 while the other eye would need a toric lens,maybe a 8. 9 diameter 14. 5. Just like some people have different eye color between the right and left, we can have different sizes to our contacts. The Dr. would determine the strengthe and size.

Base curves are not comparable between brands of lenses. You will need refitting by your contact lens fitter if you want to switch brands. It is not legal for the on line company to sell lenses to you without a valid prescription. o reseller in the USA can legally sell you lenses without a prescription.
