Both Dr. Sullivan and Dr. Derheimer are our contact lens specialists in St. Louis, and are experienced in fitting all types of patients from routine to more complex cases. At Ophthalmology Consultants, we fit patients with custom lenses to correct corneal diseases such as Keratoconus, lenses for post-surgical eyes, daily lenses to relieve allergy and dry eye symptoms, as well as prosthetic contact lenses.

After a comprehensive eye examination with one of our physicians, patients who are candidates for contact lenses can explore their options. Contact lenses requires more frequent follow-ups and evaluation than a regular eye examination to ensure healthy and safe wear. Please let us know when scheduling your appointment if you are interested in our contact lens services.

Duette HD is a new type of contact that combines two lens materials into one unique Duette HD lens. The center of the lens is made of a hard material to give you clear,
crisp vision. The soft skirt keeps the lenses comfortable throughout the day. No other contact lens uses the dual material design to provide exceptional vision and comfort in
a single lens. Plus, Duette HD lenses are personalized for your eyes to give you truly uncompromising vision.

Duette HD Product Description:

• Does your vision blur when you blink, lie down, or while driving at night?
• Would you like more stable vision?
• Would you like to see more clearly than you’ve ever seen before?

Duette Multifocal is specially designed for people over 45 who are looking for a way to see better-up close, far away and everywhere in between. The patented, dual material

vision and be able to look, and see your best, by enjoying freedom from glasses.
