EYETECH Opaques,

Cosmetic and Prosthetic Lenses


Eyetech Opaques have been designed for those patients that require a radical change of iris color.  The Lenses are made opaque across all or part of the back of the lens and then a tint is applied to the front surface.


Prosthetic Lenses are used to hide corneal disfigurements such as scars or to treat a wide range of conditions including photophobia, when certain light, colors and intensities can cause problems to the unprotected eye.

(Prosthetic and therapeutic contact lenses can only be order by a licensed eye care practitioner. )
