At Metro Optics we carry a wide variety of contact lenses and can perform contact lens tests as well as vision tests. Our optical stores are stocked with the latest in eyewear, frames and and contact lenses for our patients needs. This includes soft contact lenses, which are a popular type of contact lens because of their comfort. Our optical store Throggs Neck also stocks hard contact lenses, also known as gas permeable lenses.
Our contact lenses come in many different types such as disposable and extended wear. We carry brands that are comfortable for those with astigmatism as well as hard or soft contact lenses. Our most commonly prescribed soft contact lenses have a wide range of versatility. Thanks to strides in optical technology, soft contacts can now be prescribed for those with astigmatism as well. Our daily wear contacts can be worn for up to 12 hours but must be removed at the end of each day and cleaned. Our optical store Throggs neck carries a wide range of designer and budget frames, bifocal and multifocal lenses. Bifocal lenses are used for patients who need two powers in one frame.
If you wear glasses or contact lenses, and are starting to get headaches, it’s a good idea to have your prescription checked. An eyeglass prescription should be checked yearly just to make sure that there have been no vision changes. Even if you wear contacts, a yearly exam is a good idea at our optical store Throggs Neck. Contact lens prescriptions last for longer than a year and do not need regular updating like eyeglass prescriptions do. The eyes can change over time, however. All of our patients are treated to our top notch service and equipment, while they wait in a relaxing and friendly waiting room.
