Contact Lenses

High-Quality and Comfortable Eye Contacts in Manhattan, New York

Many people, who have vision problems, prefer to use contact lenses instead of spectacles due to a variety of reasons. Indeed, contacts have their pros: first of all, they move together with your eyes, so nothing blocks what you see; they don't get wet or fog up when it's rainy or cold outside; they are perfect companions for active sports. In addition to their performance benefits, they can elevate your look (when choosing colored lenses). Being a great alternative to glasses, contacts provide maximum comfort while improving your vision. Nobody else will know that you’re wearing them, and you will practically forget about it too. With a pair of premium-quality lenses, you can be engaged in everyday activities and sports without limitations. Apart from this, there are low risks of losing them.

As a plus, you don’t have to worry about whether your lenses will complement a certain look or not because they go with everything and anything, making you feel free when choosing the outfit. Whether you’re a newbie who’s looking for their first pair of contact lenses and has many questions, or an experienced wearer searching for comprehensive lens exams, EuroOptica has you covered!

How to Choose

We offer a comprehensive selection of contact lenses including disposable soft contact, bifocal/multifocal, toric, gas permeable and colored lenses. Choosing any type of corrective lenses should be done carefully, following an eye care specialist’s recommendations to fit your visual needs. Our experienced optometrist Dr. Sarah Phen will accurately determine your precise prescription for contact lenses and check for the earliest signs of eye disease. You’ll also get answers to your burning questions and recommendations on how to clean, store, and disinfect your contacts to keep them in good condition and prevent eye infections and other unpleasant problems.

Choosing the right type of lenses depends on your needs: for example, people with astigmatism are recommended to wear toric lenses, while patients with presbyopia should use bifocal contacts. If you have dry eyes or eye allergies, pay attention to special lenses developed for people with sensitive and dry eyes. Following the latest innovations in the medical industry, these products are created to provide unparalleled comfort and solve problems. Our professionals are always ready to help you determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear, and to generate your contact lens Rx.

Wear and Care

If you’re a newbie in contacts, read some advice you’ll need for wearing and caring for your contact lenses. There is no denying that trying corrective lenses takes some getting used to. But once people overcome their doubts and fears and try lenses that properly fit their correction needs and lifestyle, most can get used to wearing them rather quickly. Once it happens, you’ll discover a whole new world of freedom and clear vision. They will become a part of your daily routine and, as with any new habit, you will just need a little practice. As soon as you get your new contact lenses, don’t forget to set up a cleaning routine.

Cleaning and disinfecting your contacts is a must when you're wearing reusable lenses! The whole process only takes a couple of minutes: 1) make sure your hands are clean and dry to avoid irritation; 2) always start with the same eye in order not to mix your lenses up (since each eye has different prescription); 3) clean your contact lenses immediately after removal using the disinfecting solution recommended by your eye care professional; 4) never use tap water to clean your lenses or lens case! By following these simple rules, you’ll be surprised how easily you'll get used to contact lenses and make them a part of your daily life! Visit EuroOptica at 280 Columbus Ave, Manhattan, NYC, to get the best fitting lens that will meet your vision and lifestyle needs.
