Contact Lens Options

The goal of our center is to give every patient the opportunity to get expert professional care utilizing state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment in a convenient comfortable setting in midtown Manhattan.  We will accept most medical and vision plans for our contact lens services.  We will coordinate closely with your primary eye doctor to assure that all of your visual needs are addressed, whether it be consultation, contact lenses, or surgery.

If  your doctor wants us to optimize your lens fit, we offer all types of contact lenses for the treatment of keratoconus under the direction of Evan Kaplan, OD, MS, FAAO.  By looking at a detailed map of your cornea we can determine the type and custom shape of a contact lens to fit your eye.  Many patients continue to do well with standard gas permeable designs, but others, due to the shape of their corneas require much larger lenses (mini-scleral or scleral lens designs), hybrid lenses (hard lens center sandwiched inside a soft lens) or piggybacking (using a soft lens cushion underneath a gas permeable lens).

Dr. Kaplan has been teaching contact lenses to optometrists and ophthalmologists for over 25 years.  He will directly see all patients and go over all of the options from contact lenses to surgical considerations to stabilize and improve the vision. Together with your referring doctor, we will figure out a plan so that you receive the best options for your particular condition.
