Dr. McManamon likes to engage with patients to determine the best treatments and plans to improve symptoms of dry eye. One of the best options in his arsenal is a scleral contact lens which provides a fluid reservoir for the eye throughout the wear time. It is a comfortable, relieving experience. Dr. McManamon works with the best contact lens manufacturing companies in the country to provide the most up-to-date lens designs and technology available to his patients.
