At Advanced Eyecare Associates, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in the Succasunna Roxbury area. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, the doctors will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle. If you suffer from dry eye, allergies, or recurring eye infections, speak with our staff to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, our doctors determine what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism depending on the error) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. An optometrist may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for an eye health exam Succasunna Roxbury optometrists, call 973-584-2020 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, our doctors work with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution. Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form. Contact lenses need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at 973-584-2020 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.
Advances in contact lens technology have created great options for cosmetic and prosthetic lenses. Custom contact lenses can be created to camouflage any color variation or irregularity and produce a natural eye color. Cosmetic lenses are also available to transform your eye color. Call us at 973-584-2020 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.
Contact Lens Wear & Care
Contact lenses are a medical device placed on the corneal surface in order to provide clear vision. As such, it is very important to maintain proper contact lens wear and care habits, in order to ensure healthy vision and eyes. When being fit with contact lenses for the first time, patients are trained on how to insert and remove the contact lenses safely, as well as how to clean the contact lenses properly to prevent infection. At Advanced Eyecare Associates, our doctors and contact lens technicians spend as much time as needed with our patients to prepare them for lifetime of successful contact lens vision and comfort!
