Optometrist Garden City

Optometrist Garden City is what we are known for locally. The science behind how our eyes work has always fascinated Dr. Gail Correale. We have the best Optometrist Garden City has to offer. From the time she first donned a pair of prescription eyeglasses at the age of 10, Dr. Correale knew she would someday be an Optometrist. In 2011 she relocated her office to a large professional suite in Westbury,

Making Progress There she continues to provide exceptional eye care from comprehensive eye exams using the latest available technology to expert contact lens fittings to Lasik consults, pre ops, post ops and much more. Her office boasts an atmosphere that is both professional and welcoming. Best Optometrist Garden City

Want to know breif history about Contact Lenses?

Various Institutions such as Wills Eye Hospital Contact Lens Department, Schei Eye Institute and the Pennsylvania College of Optometry joined in research with this specially designed lens.  It was found that not only can there be control of the corneas of patients with corneal disease and abnormalities, but also improve those surfaces.  This U.S. Patent was approved in 1986, #4,601,556.  This lens is used worldwide. 
With the advent of improved soft contact lenses and new, better, more oxygen transmissible, stable lenses we now have millions of contact lens patients turning to this modality as a means of correction for visual disparities of all kinds.  However, as scientific research evolved in the late 1970's, surgical procedures were introduced to the world by Drs. Baraquer of Bogota, Columbia, Sato from Japan, T.J. Lans from the Netherlands and later by Feodorof of the Soviet Union.  These procedures, using incisions known as radial keratotomy, were developed with the goal of surgically correcting myopia.  Myopia is either an elongated globe or an elongated globe plus an elongated cornea.  When successful, the procedure greatly reduces the effective power of the eye and successfully treated patients no longer required eyeglasses or contact lenses.  These procedures were eventually found to be unpredictable, and those patients with poor results could no longer wear normal soft contact lenses of any kind.  This was because a soft contact lens would conform to the shape of their cornea, producing the same visual effect as with no lens on at all.

This design was presented at the International Medical Contact Lens Symposium in Toronto Canada in 1994,   the European Contact Lens Society of Ophthalmic Medicine in Venice, Italy in 2003, and the European Contact Lens Society of Ophthalmic Medicine in Budapest, Hungary in 2004.  The NRK design has led to more comfort and better vision with the least amount of  risk and complication to the patient's post surgical cornea.  It is also the first FDA approved design for the reduction of myopia without surgery. 

Conclusion Today, the world is researching different contact lens materials, and designs that will promote more comfort and better vision.  This search for safer lenses and better designs will always exist.  However, as we look to the future in ophthalmic sciences we may find that with advanced surgical procedures both eyeglasses and contact lenses as we know them will be used less and less.  Gas permeable lenses of special designs will be used as a medical treatment for patients with diseases and abnormalities of the cornea.  Various types of surgery for correction of common refractive errors is indeed a reality.  But even that will be challenged, as perhaps solutions to present issues in ophthalmic science and visual correction may not be resolved with optical devices or surgery, but rather through genetic restructuring in the future.
