At Marino Eye Care, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by Dr. Marino. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Vanessa Marino will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle. If you suffer from dry eye, allergies, or recurring eye infections, call our office (305) 233-2040 to make an appointment for an evaluation with Dr. Marino to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.
Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Vanessa Marino determines what level of vision correction you require. Refractive error (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism depending on the error) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. Dr. Marino may use either a phoropter or an automated instrument to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with Dr. Marino, call (305) 233-2040 today.
After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Marino works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle.
Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form.
