Contact Lens Exams

Contact Lens Image

Family Vision Care Associates strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, we 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, our optometrists will determine 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 optometrists, call 914-948-0304 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, our optometrists work 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 914-948-0304 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 914-948-0304 and speak to our knowledgeable staff if you are interested in modifying or changing your eye color with contact lenses.

  • "This morning I woke up unable to see with my contacts in, Of course, as any one would, I freaked out. I called every eye doctor I could find. Everyone was so busy. But at FVC they told me to come right in,. Not only did they squeeze me in on short notice, but they went above and beyond. They were incredibly thorough and caring, as I was clearly very nervous. I left there knowing exactly what was going on, and with such peace of mind. I would recommend this place 100x over. Every single person was so kind and warm the minute i walked in the door. Needless to say, I will not be going elsewhere ever again."

  • "Dr. Paul is amazing! He's kind, has a wonderful sense of humor, and my daughter (who is cautious and shy) really likes him. At recess my daughter had a ball hit her in the eye - and Dr. Paul took her in the office immediately and discovered she had a scratched cornea. He showed her how to put eye drops into her eye herself - and within a 1/2 hour we we finished, on our way back to school with all the eye drops she needed to prevent infection and keep her eye lubricated. She also takes vision therapy with him and is making incredible progress."

  • "I have been a patient at Family Vision Care Associates for 24 years. Dr. Paul Bernstein and his staff are outstanding. They really go above and beyond to make your experience as wonderful as possible. They are very knowledgeable and are always current with the new technology. In my lifetime, I've transitioned from wearing glasses, to contacts to Lazik and I couldn't have done it without Dr. Bernstein. He's been a wonderful help in adjusting to all the changes and I'm grateful for all the support I've gotten over the years from him and his team. If you're looking for an experienced and reliable doctor who's patience and kindness go above the norm, look no further!!"
