Choosing the best fit
Dr Gallo & Associates offers complete contact lens examinations, fittings, and follow-up care.
Exciting advances in contact lens research enable more patients to enjoy the benefits of contact lens wear. Our practice carries a variety of contact lenses including frequent replacement, astigmatism-correcting, bifocal, rigid gas permeable, scleral lenses and ultra violet blocking. We carry a wide variety of trial lenses so we are able to accommodate you the day of your visit.
In addition, we expertly fit rigid contact lenses for keratoconus and high myopia.
If you have never worn contact lenses and are interested in having them fitted, our optometrists will be pleased to discuss options best suited for you. If you wear contact lenses, we would ask you to wear them on the day of your examination in order for the doctor to verify the fit of the lenses.
Contact lenses can provide you with clear and comfortable vision without glasses. They are ideal for sports, the outdoors, or anyone who enjoys freedom from their glasses. Get relief from those glasses that fog up on cold days.
The optometrists at Dr Gallo & Associates can offer contact lenses to suit your lifestyle. We implement the latest technology in contact lens material and diagnostic equipment to provide contact lenses with the best comfort and vision. Your eye health is important to us, so we take care to perform a thorough health examination of your eyes and fit you with contact lenses that fit the unique shape of your eyes. Our expert staff will train you on proper contact lens hygiene and care, after which you will get the opportunity to take them for a trial.
