What Are Contact Lenses?
Contact lenses are thin, curved plastic devices worn on the surface of the eye to help correct vision impairments. For many patients who have myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia, (far-sightedness, astigmatism, or presbyopia (age-related farsightedness), contacts are the most suitable way to achieve their sharpest vision. Besides convenience, contact lens engineering has made numerous strides in recent years. Rothchild Eye Institute boasts the latest vision technology and an on-site optical center, where we are pleased to offer our patients a terrific inventory of standard and specialty contacts.

"I had a severe ulcer infection in my left eye from contact lenses. the Dr was very direct and straight forward which I appreciate in a physician. Had I not been treated I could have lost my vision permanently said from my local optometrist. Him and his staff were very aggressive in my treatment, called me at home after hours to ensure my condition. I had never experienced that from a Dr's office before. I have sent all my friends to Dr. Rothchild since!"- I.A. / Google / Mar 19, 2017
"I had cataract surgery recently with a special muiltifocal implant in both of my eyes in January 2019, I am glasses free. I had no pain or discomfort during my surgery. Dr. Rothchild and his staff “Jennifer” had explained everything to me before during and after surgery. My results were excellent. I had visited for consultation a number of other eye surgeons and I was most comfortable with the Rothchild eye institute. THEY ARE THE BEST!!!"- H.C. / Google / Mar 19, 2019

What Can Be Expected With Contact Lenses?
At Rothchild Eye Institute, we proudly dedicate extra time and consideration to helping you receive the most appropriate contact lenses. Following a complete exam, we can discuss if contact lenses are an effective option for your vision needs. Some of the most common types of lenses include daily wear and single-use soft lenses, multifocal, toric, and gas permeable (rigid or hard) contact lenses. In addition, we are pleased to offer a thorough training session for placing and removing contact lenses for patients of all ages. A follow-up visit in 4 – 8 weeks may be recommended for contact lens wearers. It is important to remember, however, that follow-up evaluations never take the place of routine eye exams.
