Are you thinking about wearing contact lenses for the first time? Or, do you currently wear contact lenses but your contact lens prescription has expired? If either case, you will want to visit us at Maplewood Vision Care where you can be seen by our optometrist, Dr. Dennis J. Delesio, for a new contact lens prescription; our optician Hillside can also talk to you about the different contact lens options available to you.

Today there are many different contact lenses offered by our optician Hillside. At our vision practice you can purchase both hard lenses and soft lenses. Today, most patients who wear contact lenses have their vision corrected with soft lenses because soft lenses are extremely comfortable and easy to get used to. They also come in many different styles to help meet your everyday needs. However, some patients still feel that they receive the best vision correction from hard contact lenses. This may be especially true if you have astigmatism. Contact lenses can also now be bifocal, which means that you can have two different distance corrections in one pair of contact lenses. This can mean that you do not need to use reading glasses anymore in order to see clearly, close-up. Soft contact lenses come in different styles including disposable lenses, daily wear lenses, extended wear lenses, and color-changing lenses. Disposable lenses are worn once and then replaced with a new pair. Daily wear lenses are worn during the day and then removed at night to clean the lenses and to rest your eyes. Extended-wear lenses can be worn for many days before they need to be removed for cleaning. And, color-changing lenses can make it appear as though the color of your iris has changed. Our optician helps you determine which the best color-changing lens to purchase is in order to receive the color change that you are seeking.

There is no appointment needed to come in to meet with our optician Hillside. For an appointment to see our optometrist for a vision exam, simply contact our office.

Perhaps you are getting contact lenses for the first time. Or, perhaps you have not had a contact lens exam in several years and need to receive one to get a new prescription. In any event, patients can have a thorough contact lens exam and fitting at our office. Our optometric physician is Dr. Dennis J. Delesio. He has expertise in many areas of eye care, as well as being highly experienced in fitting patients with contact lenses – even patients who are hard to fit. If you are planning on getting new contact lenses, you will want to be seen by our Hillside optometrist at our Maplewood Vision Care center.

After our optometrist has performed a complete contact lens exam and fitting, he will talk to you about the different types of contact lenses available. There are many different types of contact lenses manufactured today and many offer different benefits for different vision situations. Today most patients wear soft contact lenses because these lenses are very comfortable and extremely easy to get used to. Even patients with astigmatism can find comfortable and effective soft contact lenses. However, our Hillside optometrist will still prescribe gas permeable lenses (hard lenses) for some patients, as they may still provide sharper vision in certain cases of severe nearsightedness or astigmatism.

Soft contact lenses also come in a variety of types for the consumer. Our optometrist will talk to you about which contact lenses will work best with your lifestyle. Daily wear lenses are contact lenses that are worn during the day and are then removed at night for cleaning. This will also give time for the eyes to rest. You do not sleep in these contact lenses. If you are interested in getting contact lenses that you can sleep in, there are extended wear contacts. These contacts can be worn many days at a time without needing to be removed for cleaning. Today there are also disposable contact lenses which are worn once for a short period of time such as a day, and then thrown away; the lens wearer will always have a fresh new pair of contact lenses to wear. We even offer color changing lenses which allow patients to have it appear as though the color of their eyes have changed. These lenses can be either vision correcting or non-vision correcting in nature. However, prescriptions are still needed to ensure proper fit of these lenses, even if they do not offer vision correction. If you would like to see our Hillside optometrist for a contact lens exam and fitting, contact our office today.

The first decision in selecting contact lenses is between soft lenses and rigid, also known as gas-permeable, lenses. In general, soft lenses tend to be more comfortable and easier to get used to, while rigid lenses provide sharper and clearer vision, particularly in addressing nearsightedness and astigmatism. This, of course, can vary somewhat from person to person. This is why we offer our expert advice and guidance throughout the process to help you find which of our Maplewood contact lenses are the perfect ones for you. Among soft contact lenses, you also have the options of daily wear, extended wear, disposable, and color changing. Daily wear are worn from first thing in the morning until you go to bed at night, for up to a total of 18 hours. They’re then removed and cleaned and ready for the next day. Extended wear are similar but can be worn overnight. Disposable are worn for the day and then discarded. Color changing allow you the pleasure of having a different eye color, trying on a new look. They’re even available with no vision correction, to be used as a fashion accessory.

It’s important that your contacts fit properly and that there are no problems with your eyes that might cause complications. That’s why before you buy our Maplewood contact lenses, we’ll make sure that the key parts of your eyes- such as your corneas, eyelids, and conjunctiva are throughly checked. We’ll also make certain that the fit of your new contact lenses is right and feels good on you.
