When you come to our office to get a prescription for eyeglasses or contact lens exams, you will need to have one of two different types of eye exams. Both eye exams at Park Professional Eyecare will make sure that your eyes are healthy, but there are additional things which need to be done during a contact lens eye exam in Bronx NY.
When you come to our vision practice to get a new lens prescription, you will be seen by our expert optometrist, Dr. Ralph Paternoster. When a patient gets a contact lens eye exam in Bronx NY, they not only need to make sure that their eyes are healthy so that they cannot be harmed by contact lens wear, but also so that the contact lenses will fit them properly. During a contact lens exam, our eye doctor will measure the surface of your eyes to determine the size and type of contact lenses that will work best for you. Our eye doctor may also do a tear film evaluation to make sure that you are not having problems with dry eyes. Luckily, today, if you do have dry eye, there are new contact lenses which patients with dry eye can safely and comfortably wear. When contact lenses are worn that do not fit your eyes correctly, they can cause permanent damage to the retina due to constant irritation. Our eye doctor will also talk to you about which type of contact lenses will work best for you. Soft contact lenses are extremely popular because they are very comfortable and easy to get used to. They also come in different styles including daily wear lenses, extended wear lenses, disposable lenses, and color changing lenses which make it appear as though the color of your eyes has changed.
