Are you thinking about getting contact lenses for the first time? Or perhaps you need to purchase new contact lenses and do not have a current contact lens prescription. In either of these cases, you will want to make sure that you come to our vision practice, Joseph Eng, OD, so that you will be able to have a complete contact lens exam and fitting. Patients enjoy our one-stop shopping where they can have a complete contact lens exam and then purchase Sunset Park contacts while under the same roof.
At our vision office, our expert optometrists are Dr. Joseph K. Eng and Dr. Esther H. Tan. Our optometrist can provide you with either a comprehensive eye exam or a contact lens exam and fitting. During a contact lens exam, your eyes will be tested for their visual acuity, and then they will be screened for any eye diseases or disorders. During the course of the exam your eyes will also have certain measurements taken, and our optometrist will determine which the best type of contact lens for you to wear is. When your eyes are tested for refractive errors, our eye doctor will be able to determine if you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism. Today even patients with astigmatism or dry eye are able to comfortably wear Sunset Park contacts for great vision correction.
Our eye doctors will also screen your eyes for many different eye diseases and disorders. During the course of the exam your eyes will be screened for: glaucoma; diabetic retinopathy; cataracts; dry eyes; macular degeneration; retinal tears; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. Our optometrist will also measure the curvature of your cornea and the size of your iris. It is important that Sunset Park contacts fit you perfectly, or else they can actually damage your cornea with repeated wear. In fact, some sizing information is also included as part of your contact lens prescription. Our optometrist will then discuss with you the best type of contact lens for you to wear. At our practice we offer any different contact lenses for purchase including lenses by Alcon and Bausch + Lomb. Today most patients are able to wear soft contact lenses. Soft contacts can come in several different types including: disposable wear lenses; extended wear lenses; daily wear lenses, and color changing lenses that can make it appear as the color of your eyes have changed.
