At Eye Express located in the Bronx, our doctors understand that everyone has unique eyes with unique needs, which is why we strive to offer not only the latest in eyewear products, but the very finest in contact lens selections. When you come to our Melrose optical store to receive a prescription for contact lenses, our doctors will take the time to go over all the contact lens brands and types. 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.
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!
