Have you been considering getting contact lenses for the first time? Or, are you in need of a new contact lens prescription? In either case, you will want to visit us at Contemporary Eye Care. In Canarsie, our state-of-the-art eye care practice provides excellent, comprehensive eye exams, and contact lens fittings. Our Flatlands eye doctor, Dr. Elliot Gross, has provided excellent eye care for every member of the family for over 40 years.
When you visit our Flatlands eye doctor for a contact lens exam and fitting, you will first receive a comprehensive eye exam. Then extra tests will be done, and measurements taken, so that Dr. Gross can provide you with the best contact lens prescription. Today, almost everyone can wear contact lenses due to the advances in optical technology. Even if your eyes have astigmatism, or you want bifocal or multifocal lenses, we can provide you with contact lenses that fit your needs. Our Flatlands eye doctor will provide you first with a comprehensive eye exam to make sure your eyes are free of any developing diseases or conditions that would make it dangerous for your eyes for you to wear contact lenses.
Our comprehensive eye exam includes: a slit lamp examination; dilated eye exam; refraction for glasses and contact lenses; and glaucoma pressure testing. We also perform a series of computerized tests to check out the health of your eyes. Then, when we are preforming a contact lens exam, we include other tests and measurements, including a test for dry eye. If you have dry eye you may not be able to wear contact lenses comfortably, or without damaging your cornea. We also take specific measurements to make sure that the contacts will fit you exactly right, including fitting the curvature of your eye. During a contact lens exam, our Flatlands eye doctor will also determine which will be the best contact lenses to fit your prescription and lifestyle. There are many different types of lenses including hard lenses and soft lenses. Soft lenses include several options including: daily wear; extended wear; disposable and color-changing. If you are in need of a new contact lens exam and fitting contact us at Contemporary Eye Care. We think you will enjoy becoming a member of our Contemporary Eye Care practice family.
