CONTACT LENS

 
 

Contact lens may offer better vision correction than glasses because they correct the refractive error closer to the eye. Several types of contact lenses are available.

DIGITAL DEVICES & CONTACT LENS

Contact lenses are now available with UV blocking which can help ease eye fatigue while using digital devices.

Soft lenses are less durable, but are more comfortable because they are made of a softer plastic called hydrogel. Because they contain a higher percentage of water, they permit a better flow of oxygen to the cornea. However, the material is also more porous, so there is an increased risk of eye irritation and infection due to contamination by bacteria, dust and protein. Usually soft contact lenses are removed from the eye at the end of each day.

Extended wear lenses are soft contacts that have been licensed for continuous wear for up to 30 days and nights without being removed.

Rigid gas permeable lenses combine the features of hard and soft contacts. They permit the passage of more oxygen to the cornea than hard lenses do, and are more effective for people with astigmatism.

If you’re over 40, bifocal contact lenses may be a great option, helping you enjoy crisp, clear vision whether you are texting on your phone, working on your computer or looking for a street sign. You will find the clear vision you are looking for at all distances.

Keratoconus (KC) is a thinning disorder of the cornea that causes visual distortion. Treatment options for keratoconus focus on correcting the distorted vision caused by the thinning and bulging of the cornea. Eyeglasses or soft contact lenses may be used to correct the mild near-sightedness and astigmatism caused by keratoconus in its earliest stage, however at some point a rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lens will correct KC vision better.

Premium Multifocal & Monofocal Lens

What’s an IOL?
IOL stands for intraocular lens – an artificial lens that’s implanted during cataract surgery.

CLICK TO LEARN ABOUT PREMIUM OPTIONS

In order to provide his patients with the best vision correction results possible, Dr. Goldberg offers only the best premium IOL — AcrySof ReSTOR. This sophisticated lens implant is a multifocal IOL that allows Dr. Goldberg’s patients to experience improved vision at multiple distances following cataract surgery. In fact, many patients who receive the ReSTOR lens are able to greatly reduce their dependence on corrective eyewear.

Multifocal lenses are designed to replace cataracts and correct presbyopia at the same time. Their goal is to give you a full range of clear vision, near to far, and everywhere in between.

Patients with astigmatism can also experience true performance at all distances with Acrysof IQ ReSTOR Multifocal Toric IOL.

Astigmatism-correcting lenses are for patients with existing corneal astigmatism. These lenses usually give patients quality distance vision with less dependence on glasses. Most patients will still need to wear glasses for tasks such as reading or working at a computer.

Monofocal lenses have one point of focus and can usually give you clear distance vision. While distance vision is improved, most patients still need to wear glasses for certain tasks, such as reading or working at a computer.
