Dr. Anmarie Russo and Dr. Phyllis Landman, our optometrists, provide contact lens services. Please note that contact lens prescriptions are different from glasses prescriptions, and that contact lens services are typically not covered by insurance.
New Contact Lens Patients
If you have not been examined at our office within the past 6 months, you will need to have a comprehensive eye examination with one of our doctors before being fit for contact lenses.
At this exam you may be given a prescription for glasses. If you do not have insurance coverage for an eye exam, the self-pay fee will apply.
New Contact Lens Fit
Once you have had a comprehensive eye exam, you may have a contact lens evaluation and fitting. The first visit (about 1 hour) will be to determine the contact lens that best corrects your vision and fits your lifestyle, and to train you in contact lens insertion and removal. Your second visit (and third if needed) will assess your progress. Once you have completed the fitting process, a prescription for contact lenses will be issued.
Existing Contact Lens Patients
Eye Exam and Contact Lens Check
If you have not had a comprehensive exam at our office within the past 6 months, you will need to have an exam with one of our doctors before your contact lenses can be updated. If you do not have insurance coverage for an eye exam, the self-pay exam fee will apply.
If the comprehensive eye exam is with our optometrists, they may be able to update your contact lenses and issue an updated contact lens prescription at this visit.
If the comprehensive eye exam is with one of our Ophthalmologists, you may need to return to see Dr. Russo or Dr. Landman for the contact lens update or contact lens refit appointment.
