Contact Lenses for Dry Eyes

Dry eyes can make contact lens wear difficult and cause a number of symptoms, including:

  • a gritty, dry feeling
  • feeling as if something is in your eye
  • a burning sensation
  • eye redness (especially later in the day)
  • blurred vision

Contact Lenses for Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a very common condition where the curvature of the front of the eye isn’t round but is instead shaped more like a football or an egg.

This means one curve is steeper or flatter than the curve 90 degrees away. Astigmatism won’t keep you from wearing contact lenses – it just means you need a different kind of lens.

Contact Lenses for Presbyopia

Today, there are many designs of bifocal and multifocal contact lenses to correct presbyopia. Another option for presbyopia is monovision. This is wearing a contact lens in one eye for distance vision and a lens in the other eye that has a modified power for near vision.

During your contact lens fitting, we can help you decide whether bifocal/multifocal contact lenses or monovision is best for you.

Colored Contact Lenses

Colored Contact Lenses

Most colored contact lenses are designed to mimic the natural look of the colored part of the eye, called the iris. Since this area is made up of colorful shapes and lines, some color contacts feature a series of tiny colored dots and colored lines and shapes to help the lenses look more natural on the eye.

We carry a variety of colored contact lenses to give you the eye color you’ve always wanted.

Specialty Contact Lenses Fitting

Not everyone is an ideal candidate for contact lenses. If you have one or more of the following conditions; astigmatism, dry eyes, presbyopia, keratoconus or post-refractive surgery (such as LASIK) contact lens wear may be more difficult.

But “difficult” doesn’t mean impossible. Often, people with these conditions can wear contacts quite successfully.

Contacts for Post RK or LASIK

More than one million Americans each year have LASIK surgery to correct their eyesight. Sometimes, vision problems remain after surgery that can’t be corrected with eyeglasses or a second surgical procedure. In these cases, gas permeable contact lenses can often restore visual acuity and eliminate problems like glare and halos at night.

Scleral and corneal GP lenses are also used to correct vision problems after corneal transplant surgery, including irregular astigmatism that cannot be corrected with eyeglasses.

Scleral Lenses for Keratoconus

Eye doctors throughout Westchester, New York refer their keratoconus patients to the Keratoconus Clinic at Hartsdale Family Eyecare for specialist care.

That’s why Dr. Schwartz serves keratoconus patients and patients with special contact lens requirements.

Problem-solving contact lens fittings cost more

Fitting contact lenses to correct or treat any of the above conditions will generally take much more time than a regular contact lens fitting. These "hard-to-fit" cases usually require a series of office visits and multiple pairs of trial lenses before the final contact lens prescription can be determined. Also, the lenses required for these conditions are usually more costly than regular soft contact lenses. Therefore, fees for these fittings are higher than fees for regular contact lens fittings. Call our office for details.

Find out if you can wear contact lenses

If you are interested in wearing contact lenses, call our office to schedule a consultation. Even if you've been told you're not a good candidate for contacts because you have one of the above conditions or for some other reason, we may be able to help you wear contact lenses safely and successfully.

Contact Lens Fitting in Hartsdale, Scarsdale, and White Plains NY

A good contact lens fit starts with a thorough eye exam to ensure the most up-to-date prescription and rules out any pre-existing conditions that could interfere with contact lens wear.

We will determine the best fitting lens based on your lifestyle needs, the shape and health of your eye. In most cases, you’ll have the opportunity to try lenses on the same day as your exam. You can even go home with a few samples before making a final decision.

Our Hartsdale optometrists follow up the initial fitting and then make any necessary changes in fit or materials to get you the best possible fit. We teach all our patients proper contact lens care and also possible consequences if proper care is not taken. Then we continue with long-term follow-up to monitor the condition of the lenses and to ensure that proper hygiene is being maintained.
