Some of The Contact Lens Related Services We Offer
We are contact lens specialists. Every aspect of what we do focuses around contact lenses of all styles. The practitioners at Obrig are New York Sate certified Ophthalmic Dispensers and Contact Lens Fitters. When you come to us to be fit with lenses, it is important that you have had a full eye exam from a qualified ophthalmologist or optometrist. If you are looking for a reputable eye doctor, please feel free to call us for a referral.
A basic overview of the services we offer are:
- Contact Lens Fitting For a New Lens Wearer:
We will analyze your prescription and examine your corneal health, corneal topography, tear quality, and lid structure. After discussing your expectations with contact lenses, we will suggest the best lenses and care system for you.
In many cases, you can leave with lenses the first time you come in. Granted, you can learn to put them on and take them off. Not to worry, this is actually very easy when you are taught how to do it properly, and we will make certain that you are comfortable with the process.
- Re-Fitting Existing Lens Wearers:
If you are currently wearing lenses and are looking for an improvement, we can help. Many lens wearers suffer unnecessarily because they are not in the best lens system for them. Whether you are seeking better comfort, improved vision, or the latest in technology, the specialists at Obrig are willing to help.
- Gas Permeable Lenses:
Fitting Gas permeable lenses is really an art form, not just a science. GP lenses, often mis-referred to as hard contact lenses, will provide the best vision, health, and are the most cost effective way of wearing lenses. Unlike many contact lens practices, gas permeable lenses make up a very large portion of our practice. GP wearers, you are in good hands with us.
- Handling Instruction:
For new lens wearers, learning to put on and remove contact lenses can seem a bit daunting. We are extremely patient and willing to help anybody learn to put on lenses. Did you know some lenses are easier to put on than others? Leave it to us to get you beyond the learning curve and become a satisfied lens wearer.
- Clean and Polish Gas Permeable Lenses:
For gas permeable lens wearers, your lenses will tend to get small scratches and divots from regular handling. The staff at Obrig is qualified to polish and buff your lenses, making them fresh and healthy again. This service is only available for lenses that were dispensed through Obrig.
- Pediatric Contact Lens Fittings
There are a number of reasons why infants and toddlers may require the use of contact lenses for medical purposes. Our approach when fitting pediatric contacts is to make it as healthy and beneficial for the development of your child's eyes while making the process as easy as possible for you.
