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.

Soft and rigid gas permeable lenses in Brooklyn

If you’re considering contact lenses, we want you to be aware that they have come a long way, even in just the last few years. Our Brooklyn contact lenses are more comfortable and provide better vision than at any time before. The two basic categories are soft and rigid, or gas permeable. Soft lenses are also subdivided further into four types to suit your needs and preferences. At Brook Plaza Ophthalmology, we will help you to select the ideal contacts.

Rigid contact lenses take a little more effort to grow accustomed to than soft lenses do, but they have two very big advantages. First, they offer sharper and clearer vision. And second, they are typically the best option for addressing severe nearsightedness or astigmatism. If you find that you are comfortable wearing rigid contacts, you will enjoy the benefits that they provide. On the other hand, soft lenses are typically very easy to wear, even for first time users. The four types you can select from are daily wear, extended wear, disposable, and color-changing. Let us explain more about what to expect from each when it come to our Brooklyn contact lenses.

Daily wear are put in each morning and can be kept in for up to 12 hours. If you would like the opportunity to wear your contacts for longer, possibly even overnight, you should consider extended wear. For those who prefer to use one pair of contacts for only a short time before discarding them, disposable are the best option. And finally, there are color-changing lenses, which allow you to enjoy trying a completely new eye color, even if you don’t need vision correction at all. To get started with our Brooklyn contact lenses, schedule an eye exam with our optometrist. It’s vital that we determine the precise prescription that you need so that you can see the very best that you’re capable of. In addition, we will fit your contact lenses to you, ascertaining that they are comfortable and centered properly, without the likelihood of causing any irritation to your eyes. Call us right now and schedule an examination.
