Many patients wear soft contact lenses for comfortable and optimal vision correction. At our vision practice, Brook Plaza Ophthalmology, one of our expert ophthalmologists, Dr. Lish, Dr. Ackerman, Dr. Metz or Dr. Shafran, can provide you with a prescription for soft contacts in Marine Park.
Although some patients still wear hard lenses for vision correction, today the vast majority of patients wear soft contacts for vision correction. Today, even patients with dry eye or astigmatism can accurately, comfortably, and safely have their vision corrected with contact lenses. There are now specialized contact lenses for many different types of vision correction, including multifocal lenses for patients who want to have two different vision prescriptions in one contact lens. This is particularly useful for patients who do not want to be bothered having to put on reading glasses when they want to read or perform a task for which they need near vision. Soft contacts in Marine Park are extremely comfortable and easy to get used to. They come in different types of styles which include: daily wear lenses which are worn up to 18 hours and are then removed for cleaning and to rest the eyes; disposable contact lenses which are worn for one day and then thrown out and replaced with a fresh pair; color-changing contacts which make it appear as though the color of your iris has changed; and extended wear contact lenses which can be worn many days in a row without having to be removed for cleaning. Our ophthalmologists can provide you with a contact lens exam which will not only check your eye health, but also provide you with a prescription for precise fitting contact lenses. Our eye doctor will also discuss the different types of lenses available to you, particularly if you have a need for a special type of contact such as toric lenses for astigmatism or special lenses for patients with dry eye.
