EYE EXAM FAQS
What to Expect?
During your office visit, we will thoroughly check the internal and external health of your eyes. Yearly eye examinations are important for maintaining good vision and screening for conditions that can affect your vision, such as dry eye, glaucoma, corneal dystrophy, cataracts, macular degeneration and other diseases. These routine eye examinations will allow you to maintain optimal vision for years to come.
An accurate glasses prescription is crucial. Each patient is different and has different needs – whether it is for perfect distance sports glasses, computer, or intense near work. Dr. Rapoport spends time discussing each patient’s individual needs for their daily activities and custom tailors each prescription for individual needs- whether it is seeing musical notes at a certain distance, a particular size computer monitor, driving and dashboard distance, or alternative sports. A trial frame is created in the office for the patient to try out before taking the prescription home.
Custom Contact Lenses & Eyeglasses in New York
Contact lenses are a great alternative for people who don’t want to wear eyeglasses. Manhattan Eye is a great place for custom contact lenses because we take exceptional care in creating and prescribing the ideal contact lenses for your condition. These include:
Daily contact lenses
The cornea gets its nutrients from the oxygen in front of it and the fluid or aqueous humor behind it. Even if you have excellent contact lens hygiene, putting a contact on every day onto the cornea prevents the cornea from getting all the oxygen it needs. Daily contact lenses have a higher oxygen coefficient than do weeklies, biweekly or monthly contact lenses. This means that the cornea breathes better and receives more oxygen in daily contact lenses. Daily contact lenses come in astigmatism correcting powers and in multifocals. Dr. Rapoport
Toric contact lenses
Different levels of astigmatism can be corrected with contact lenses. Dr. Rapoport will thoroughly examine and test your eyes to create the ideal prescription and educate you about contact lenses placement and care. Often, trial contact lenses are taken home to try out in different environments prior to getting a final prescription.
