In addition to the comprehensive ophthalmology services provided at Dr. Levine’s office, our practice also features an optical shop with a wide array of eyeglass frames and contact lenses to suit every taste and budget. We offer frames from many elite designers, as well as stylish yet affordable alternatives. We also carry a full line of frames for children and teens.
Our convenient onsite location also eliminates the hassle of having to take your prescription to another location in order to fulfill your vision correction needs. In addition to eyeglasses and contact lenses, we also provide sunglasses, sports glasses, goggles and other forms of safety and athletic eyewear.
When visiting our optical shop, you will be seen by one of our experienced optometrists or opticians who will help you decide which type of glasses or contacts are best for you. Once you make your decision, our optical experts will fit you for your chosen frames or contacts to ensure that you receive the best possible results from your vision correction from a practice you trust. In line with our overall philosophy, we use the highest quality frames and lenses, and pay careful attention to every detail of your glasses and contact lens experience in our office.
OUR MISSION IS TO MAKE YOU HAPPY!
A contact lens is a thin disk which floats on the surface of the eye, providing vision correction. With advances in optical technology, almost everyone now can wear contact lenses, regardless of the type or extent of their vision problems.
Types of Contact Lenses
Toric Lenses: Toric contact lenses are designed to correct for astigmatism. For those patients with astigmatism, part of the cornea has an oblong shape, which can make it difficult to achieve clear vision with a typical soft contact lens. Toric lenses have two different powers of correction in order to maximize vision and accommodate the astigmatism. They are available in a variety of forms, including daily, weekly and monthly disposables, as well as with colored options.
Progressive Toric Lenses: Progressive toric contact lenses are a variant of toric lenses that not only correct astigmatism, but also vision problems due to presbyopia. Presbyopia is a natural change in the ability of our eyes to focus that occurs to most people as they age. Presbyopia causes small or close-up objects to appear blurry. Progressive toric lenses offer multiple powers of correction all in one lens to provide sharp vision at a range of distances to those with astigmatism.
Daily Disposable Lenses: Daily disposable contact lenses are intended to be thrown out and replaced after you've worn them for the day. They are even easier to maintain than regular soft contacts because they require no cleaning or disinfecting. Daily disposable lenses are also a very healthy option since any bacteria that forms on the lens during the course of the day is disposed of that night and a fresh, clean lens is used the following morning.
All contact lenses require a prescription.
