When it comes to vision correction, contact lenses provide a safe and effective alternative to prescription eyeglasses. Though the choice between eyewear and contact lenses is a personal decision, many patients of Optical Visit have found contact lenses to be less cumbersome and provide a better range of vision. Just like eyeglasses which require a doctor prescribed prescription and fitting, contact lenses must be fitted to the unique shape and curvature of your cornea. A standard contact lens exam with your New Rochelle eye doctor at Optical Visit will also reveal if you’re eyes are healthy enough to support contact lens usage.
Whether you’re nearsighted or farsighted, have astigmatism or presbyopia, Optical Visit of New Rochelle offers a variety of contact lenses that correct all refractive errors. We offer the latest in contact lens technology including; daily disposables, color contact lenses, bifocal and multifocal lenses. During a contact lens exam at Optical Visit, our optometrists can determine which contact lens type best fits your optical needs, based upon a thorough eye exam and medical history.
Just like prescription eyeglasses, contact lens wearers will need to schedule follow-up visits at Optical Visit. During these check-ups, our New Rochelle optometrist will check for defects or possible damage to your eyes from the lenses. Furthermore, a contact lens prescription is only valid for one year from your last eye examination. Once this prescription has expired, you will need to get a new exam to not only check for changes in your prescription, but to identify any contact lens-related problems, from corneal damage to infections. If you’re considering switching from eyeglasses to contact lenses, come visit Optical Visit to learn more about this popular vision correction option.
