With daily disposable contact lenses, you are able to experience crystal clear vision every day, without the worry or stress of proper storage and cleaning.
Simply throw today’s pair away before bed, and enjoy the benefits and comfort of a brand new, clean, crisp pair of contact lenses the very next morning.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

Ever heard about contact lenses that are worn overnight? Orthokeratology or corneal reshaping therapy brings you the convenience of clear daytime vision without needing eyeglasses or contacts!
Not only are overnight contact lenses safe and FDA approved for children and adults, but they have helped numerous individuals boost their confidence, achieve greater visual acuity, and maintain their contact lenses with ease.
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.
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.
