If you are contact lens wearer, you will want to come to see us at Riverdell Family Vision Care. Our expert optometrist, Dr. Bruce Meyer, has been in practice in New Jersey for over 30 years. If you need custom lenses in New Milford, you will not be able to find a vision practice where you will get better fitting or prescribed custom contact lenses.
It is important that contact lenses fit your eyes perfectly so that the cornea is not damaged. If contact lenses do not fit your eyes well, they can cause constant irritation to the cornea, which will develop permanent damage if irritation is allowed to occur. Additionally, a person will not see as well with their contact lenses, or be as comfortable, if they are not properly fitted. Some people have certain vision problems or eyes which are more difficult to fit for contact lenses than others. When you need to get custom lenses in New Milford, you can relax at our vision care practice knowing that our optometrist specializes in fitting custom contacts. Contact lenses can be used to temporarily correct vision while being worn, or can also be used for other purposes. For example, corneal reshaping lenses, used in orthokeratology, can eliminate the need for eyeglasses and slow down myopic progression. Orthokeratology is now a popular treatment method for people who do not want to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses during the day. They are fitted for special corneal reshaping contact lenses at our office. These contact lenses are worn overnight, and the patient can go all day without needing to have their vision corrected with either eyeglasses or contact lenses. This is particularly helpful for people who play sports, and wearing eyeglasses interferes with their full participation. Some patients have an eye condition called keratoconus, and need to be fitted with special contact lenses in order to be able to wear them.
