Ideal Candidates

Emerald™ contact lenses are indicated for temporary
reduction of myopia up to 5.00 diopters in eyes with
astigmatism up to 1.50 diopters.

An ideal candidate is anyone with healthy eyes desiring freedom from contacts or glasses during their waking hours.

The ideal candidate:

• moderate myopia (up to -5 D) and/or astigmatism (up to 1.5 D)

• normal and healthy eyes

• good hygiene

• desire for great vision without glasses and conventional contact lenses

• not suitable or interested in Refractive Surgery

• almost any age, compliant and motivated

• has a good understanding of expectations

The less than ideal candidate:

• more cylinder than refractive error

• poor sleep habits – procedure requires a minimum of 6 consecutive hours to be consistently effective

• poor hygiene – lenses must be cleaned regularly to avoid corneal complications and changes to the lens surface that will affect performance.

• myopia in excess of approved range may result in only partial correction

• high corneal cylinder may result in residual cylinder and poor centration

• patients with clinically dry eye may need additional treatment prior to prescribing lenses

An ideal candidate is anyone with healthy eyes
desiring freedom from contacts or glasses during
their waking hours.
