Just as it is important to choose quality eyeglass lenses that work best with your optical needs, so too is it important to receive contact lenses that provide superb vision correction. At Eye Express, we handle only the finest quality, FDA approved contact lenses, including the latest in TORIC or astigmatism and multifocal lenses.

Melrose Contact Lens Exam

Melrose Contact Lens Exam

Just like eyeglasses, contact lenses require a prescription, so it is important that you visit Dr. Vilinsky at Eye Express to receive a full eye exam plus a contact lens exam and fitting. Contact lenses must fit to the shape and curvature of your eyes so that they lay comfortably and do not cause eyelid or corneal irritation. After determining your measurement and prescription, our Melrose eye doctor will speak with you about your contact lens options. If you have astigmatism, we may recommend you try TORIC contact lenses. If you have a desire to alter the color of your eyes as well as correct your vision, we’ll show you our display of colored disposable contact lenses. Our contact lens staff are able to answer many of your questions and are available for ongoing contact lens instruction and training.

It takes time for most people to become accustomed to wearing contact lenses. While soft contact lenses have a short adaptation period, rigid gas-permeable lenses take a little while longer to get used to wearing. When you come to Eye Express, our opticians can show you easy insertion techniques as well as proper nightly care and storage. Visit Eye Express for a contact lens exam and fitting today!

Melrose Glaucoma Testing

Melrose Glaucoma Testing

With early diagnosis and proper medical treatment by your Melrose eye doctor at Eye Express, glaucoma can be controlled. Though there is no cure at the present time, glaucoma can be treated with medication to protect you from permanent optic nerve damage. Once detected by Dr. Alan Vilinsky during your routine eye examination at Eye Express in Melrose, glaucoma will require long-term and ongoing care. Dr. Vilinsky will customize a treatment plan that will carefully control your eye pressure.

Glaucoma is typically treated with the use of medications that help the fluid drain better or decrease the amount of fluid made by the eye. Glaucoma medications have been proven to safely control eye pressure for many years. However, there are additional treatments, including eye surgery. In cases of chronic glaucoma, surgery is considered when the maximum amount of medicines is not controlling your eye pressure.

If you’d like to learn more about glaucoma and the various treatment options offered at Eye Express, please schedule an appointment with our eye doctor today!
