Contact Lenses

From specialized fittings for contact lenses to a full selection of top brands, Sunsation Eyewear will take care of everything you need for your contact lenses. Our Brooklyn office is stocked with a wide range of contacts, including soft disposable lenses, toric, bifocal and multifocal, and tinted color lenses.

We supply conventional vial lenses, as well as monthly, weekly and daily disposables. If there’s something in particular that you’re looking for, just ask.

Dr. Ezra Cohen will be pleased to help you find the best contact lens solutions for your visual needs.

Our eye exams for contact lenses use testing procedures that are not always included in regular eye assessments. After verifying that your prescription is up-to-date, we’ll check for all of the specific measurements that you need for a proper contact lens fit. We pay special attention to any pre-existing conditions, in order to make sure that nothing interferes with your ability to wear contacts.

The shape of your eye, your visual health and your lifestyle requirements each play an important role in picking the best fitting lenses for you. While soft lenses are most familiar nowadays, gas permeable (GP) contact lenses are also a good option for some people. They have the advantages of high oxygen permeability and extreme durability, and they provide crystal-clear vision. After your initial fitting, you’ll try on some different lenses and you may even be able to take a few samples home before deciding which ones to purchase.

Many people are diagnosed with presbyopia as they age, but the idea of wearing bifocal eyeglasses doesn’t sit well with them. If you need bifocals and don’t want eyeglasses, don’t despair! Many bifocal and multi-focal contact lens options are available in our Brooklyn store.

Just because your eyes may be classified as a “hard fit” for contact lenses, that doesn’t mean it’s time to give up. With a bit of patience and our skill, conditions such as keratoconus and astigmatism do not prevent wearing contact lenses. Whether you need toric lenses, gas permeable contacts or multi-focals, we’re happy to work with you until the right fit is made.

No matter which lenses you end up purchasing, we’ll teach you the best ways to care for them.  Follow-up with Dr. Cohen and our Sunsation Eyewear team is important for your long-term experience wearing contacts. After your initial fitting, changes may be needed in the materials or size of your contacts. We will continue to check your eyes periodically to make sure that the lenses are in good condition and that no eye infections or other problems are detected.
