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.
Orthokeratology reduces mild nearsightedness or myopia, and keeps it from progressing. Special contact lenses are worn only during sleep to gently reshape the cornea for perfect unaided clear vision all day.
Scleral lenses have offered many thousands of patients with loss due to keratoconus, post-refractive surgical complications, severe dry eyes and other corneal conditions, to once again see clearly and comfortably.
Not everyone is an ideal candidate for contact lenses. If you have one or more of the following conditions, contact lens wear may be more difficult:
- dry eyes
- giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC)
- post-refractive surgery (such as LASIK)
But "difficult" doesn't mean impossible. Often, people with these conditions can wear contacts quite successfully. Let's take a closer look at each situation - and possible contact lens solutions:
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.
