Contact Lens Exams

Contact Lens Image

At Monroe Family Eyecare Associates, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in Monroe. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, the doctors will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle. If you suffer from dry eye, allergies, or recurring eye infections, speak with our staff to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.

Evaluation

Prior to prescribing contact lenses, the doctors determines what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism depending on the error) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. An optometrist may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with our Monroe optometrist, call (845)783-1224 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, our doctors works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable corrective solution. Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form. Contact lenses need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions. Call us at (845)783-1224 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.

Cosmetic Lenses

Advances in contact lens technology have created great options for cosmetic and prosthetic lenses. Custom contact lenses can be created to camouflage any color variation or irregularity and produce a natural eye color. Cosmetic lenses are also available to transform your eye color. Call us at (845)783-1224 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.

Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Siegal takes a lot of time with each patient. You don't feel like you are just a 'chart'. He explains everything and answers all questions thoroughly. His staff is always friendly and professional. This time I was getting glasses also and his staff took time to help me make the right decisions and also offered helpful opinions."
  • "Great experience! I work in the city and get home late, so having Saturday hours and some late weekday hours is so helpful. Everyone was very nice and answered any questions I had. Definitely coming back for annual eye exams."
