Dr. Altman First in the State to Offer New Corrective Devices


Dr. Altman comparing Onefit to regular contact

A new eye product promises comfortable vision for those unable to wear contact lenses due to dry eyes or corneal defects, and Franklin-Altman Family Eye Care is the first in the state to offer it.

Onefit works like a contact lens but with a major difference: It doesn’t touch the cornea, the sensitive surface over the pupil of the eye.

Dr. Altman says, “This is unlike anything you’ve seen or imagined. It’s a contact, but it doesn’t touch the cornea like other contacts. It actually rests on the less-sensitive white area of the eyeball, and the cornea is protected by a cushion of fluid.”

This might be the answer if you’ve tried hard or gas-permeable contacts with less-than-wonderful results.

“These devices are ideal for many problem eyes. They can correct astigmatism in most cases. And they stay in,” says Dr. Altman. “Athletes, active teens, and seniors with dry eyes. If you’ve been told you’re not a good candidate for soft lenses, these devices could prove to be a huge blessing for you.”

The vision aid has just been released by the manufacturer and is now available to the public. Dr. Altman is the first doctor in Tennessee trained in prescribing and fitting the devices, which are custom-made for each patient. A consultation is the first step to see if a person is a good candidate.
