Are you living with hard to fit contact lenses in Kailua-Kona? In other words, when you wear your contacts, do you experience discomfort, irritation, or poor vision correction? At Wally Kojima, O.D and Associates, we understand the importance of comfortable eyewear that actually accommodates your unique eyes. Some refractive errors, eye conditions, and recurring symptoms make it difficult to wear traditional contact lenses, but our optometrist offers a variety of specialty lenses that are designed to overcome these obstacles.

However, if you have certain eye conditions or refractive errors that cause hard to fit lenses, our optometrist may recommend specialty contact lenses instead.
