Today just about anyone can wear contact lenses. If you are interested in having a contact lens exam and fitting, visit us at Vision World Bay Shore. One of our top-notch optometrists, Dr. Michelle Zalaznick or Dr. Myron Berlatt, will be able to write a prescription for you for Bay Shore contact lenses.
It is very important that contact lenses fit your eyes perfectly in order to prevent any damage to the cornea. For this reason, a contact lens exam and fitting is a bit more involved than a regular eye exam. However, with both eye exams, your eyes will be tested for their visual acuity. Whether you have astigmatism, or are nearsighted or farsighted, you will be able to get a prescription for contact lenses. This is because today there are contact lenses for just about everyone in every type of vision correction situation. Your eyes will also be tested for many different eye diseases and disorders during our contact lens exam. The curvature of your cornea and the size of your iris will be determined. Our optometrist will let you know which type of Bay Shore contact lenses will work best for you. Today even patients with dry eye can safely have their vision corrected with contact lenses. At our optical store, patients can purchase both soft contact lenses and hard contact lenses, also known as gas permeable lenses. Today, most people wear soft contact lenses because they are extremely comfortable, and easy to get used to. There are several different types of soft contact lenses which you may choose to purchase. Soft contact lenses can be: daily wear, which are removed at night for cleaning; extended wear lenses that can be worn for several days in a row; disposable lenses which are worn for one day and then discarded; and color-changing lenses which make it appear as though the iris in your eye has changed color.
If you are interested in getting new Bay Shore contact lenses, or getting lenses for the first time, simply contact us for an appointment.
