Your eye doctor sounds like the one I had before I got the lens, my lens wasn't a scleral lens, didn't get the technical measurements etc. My lens was a lot like the scleral as it was a hard lens that was bigger then most contact lenses but not quite as big as the scleral. My eye doctor told me I couldn't use a contact lens so I didn't pursue it for years. Then Dena King (will never forget her name) posted on here about the scleral lens and as I was to the point of wanting my eye removed and worried I could no longer work I went to my eye doctor and he told me to contact a wonderful lady that specialized in contact lenses for people like me but not as bad off as I was. He told me to not waste my money on an appointment, just send my history to her. I mailed her a detailed letter and received a call from her 24 hours later saying she could help me. Two weeks later I had an appointment with her and walked out with a lens that day, best Christmas present ever. I was skeptical about a lens so was my eye doctor but not my new doctor she is awesome, wants to try everything, I'm the hesitant one but not like I use to be, everything she has wanted me to try has worked out.
I wore the hard lens for a couple of years then my eye started getting irritated, burning and infected just like it did before I got the lens. At first I thought it was do to all the smoke in the air as we were having lots of forest fires that Fall. The fires went away but the pain didn't. I returned to my eye doctor and she suggested the daily contact lens, I had nothing to loose. She put the lens in that day and showed me how to use it. My eye felt better the next day and within 3 days all was good again. She told me she wanted me to use the daily lens the first day she saw me but she could tell from talking to me that I didn't want to try it, I wanted to stick with what I knew someone else used.
I don't know of any information on the daily lens that addresses our issues. The lens I use now is the Acuvue Oasys with Hydraluxe. I was using another lens but it was a little harder to put in, this lens came out a few months later and is easier to put in so I went with it. I've been using it for a couple of years now and have only had 1 eye infection, my eye doctor gave me a prescription and the infection cleared right up. My eye doesn't tear at all so I use ointment as well. My eye doctor was hoping I could use the disposable eye drops with the lens but my lower lid doesn't hold the drops in well enough. When I retire next year I'm going to look into the possibilities of some facial surgery to help with that problem so I can see clearly again. Before I got either lens I was scared to death that a lens would stick to my eye or I wouldn't be able to put the lens in and take it out, there have been a few times with both lenses where I had problems but now know I can handle it, it's like riding a bike now, you just know how to do it!
We are similar in our issues but different in what will work for each of us. You just need to keep trying things tell you find what works for you. If you have to you can get an eye doctor that is more willing to experiment with what works for you, it made all the difference for me. My first eye doctor was a great guy but he just wasn't equipped to help me.
If I think of anything else I will let you know and you are more than welcome to ask more questions and to share what you are doing for your eye. I continue to read and post here both looking for things that can help me and to help others as others have helped me! Good luck, Jill
