At ROCKLAND EYE CLINIC, our patients benefit from the very best contact lens technology available on the market. Contact lens fittings are performed by our certified Doctors of Optometry who assess which contact lenses are best suited to each patient.
We think it’s important that the professional who chooses your contact lenses is the same as the one who performs the comprehensive eye exam. This ensures that your contact lenses are suited to your eye health. Regular eye exams are especially important for contact lens wearers. Risks associated with ill-fitting contacts include eye infections, keratitis (corneal inflammation) and corneal ulcers.
Contact lenses for Presbyopia
Many patients think because they have difficulty seeing objects up close (presbyopia) that they can’t wear contact lenses. Fortunately, there have been recent advances in contact lens technology for presbyopia. Today a number of multifocal contact lens options are available. Patients report better far and near vision with the new contact lens designs compared with older designs or single vision contacts. One reason why some patients may have difficulty with these lenses is because of the one size fits all approach to fitting contact lenses. Drs Angela and Susan Issa assess each patient’s individual visual demands to optimize both the far and near vision.
Contact Lens safety tips:

- Always change your solution for fresh solution every night
- Change your lens case every month
- Never use tap water to clean or re wet your lenses!
- Start with the Right Eye
- Never put in contacts if your eye is red or irritated
