Many patients over 40 wish to wear contact lenses but dislike the limitation of having to wear reading glasses or mono vision (one eye for distance and one for near). Technology improvements have finally given us a repertoire of contact lenses that will work for about 90% of patients. Just five years ago the success rate was only about 50%. Dr. Marra is fully educated on the "latest and greatest" to tailor the fit for each motivated individual.
Here are a few examples:
SynergEyes Contact Lenses are a breakthrough product that combines the superior optics of rigid gas permeable lenses with the comfort of soft lenses. Dr. Marra is among a select few trained in the fitting of these specialty lenses. They are especially good for comeal irregularity and bifocal prescriptions.
Triune RGP: This translating rigid lens design works like a spectacle lens with distinct reading power at the bottom portion of the lens. It is considerably thinner and more precise than previous designs. It works best on patients with astigmatism, high vision demands, and patients who have worn RGP lenses previously.
Disposable Soft Bifocal lenses were a true breakthrough product in terms of low cost, initial comfort, and practicality of fitting from trial set. For most patients we can demonstrate these soft lenses at the same time as your initial eye exam and dispense the same day. For some it requires some adaptation and small compromise of vision. It works best for those who like disposable soft lenses. Sometimes similar design deposit resistant soft lenses are best.
Your child should have a vision examination by no later than three or four years of age. Of course, children with any signs of eye problems should be examined immediately, regardless of age. Modern technology makes It possible for a Doctor of Optometry to examine a child who is too young to read, talk or answer questions. it is also Important to remember that an annual school vision screening DOES NOT constitute a thorough visual exam.
