E K Botha Optometrists have some of the latest and most sophisticated optical equipment and fitting sets, currently used in specialised contact lens practices. This equipment greatly assists in the successful fitting of contact lenses for the more regular myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism through to the more advanced contact lens fitting of high astigmatism, irregular corneas or diseased corneas such as found with Keratoconus.
Gas permeable and silicone hydrogel materials are examples used to provide better physiology, comfort and wearing time of contact lenses. In conjunction, new manufacturing technologies, as well as sophisticated contact lens, designs vastly improve the possibility of providing a contact lens solution, which E K Botha Optometrists strive to achieve.
