Need an Eye Exam for Contact Lenses in Mt. Airy?

Mt. Airy Medical Eye Center has the largest assortment of contact lenses available that you can't find anywhere else, not even online. This is due to Dr. Boaz Schwartz's years of expertise in creating custom-fit solutions for contact lens patients across Maryland as well the entire east coast.

What makes Dr. Schwartz any different to another eye care provider?

Aside from our wide selection of contact lenses, Dr. Schwartz handles every patient with the utmost care, skill, and direction to ensure your eyesight is properly corrected with the best contact lens fit. In addition to providing adults with soft contact lenses (disposable, bifocals, colored lenses, torics, etc.), Dr. Schwartz offers families the latest technology called Orthokeratology (Ortho-k).

Unlike a contact lens, Ortho-k gently reshapes the cornea through customized, state-of-the-art molds (or lenses) overnight. This process will allow you to enjoy the day without the need for glasses or contact lenses. Possibly the best benefit is for children, as orthokeratology has been consistently proven to control myopia (nearsightedness). 

The following is a list of some of the SPECIALTY CONTACT LENSES that Dr. Schwartz uses routinely at his office:

SCLERAL CONTACT LENSES

Scleral lenses are mainly used for the management of KERATOCONUS, POST CORNEAL TRANSPLANT, POST REFRACTIVE SURGERY and for severe DRY EYE PATIENTS.

 

WAVE DESIGNED GAS PERMEABLE CONTACT LENSES

By using the patient's corneal image as a digital imprint, Dr. Schwartz uses the wave software to design a lens that will complement the patients own unique corneal contours perfectly. MULTIFOCAL, HIGH ASTIGMATISM, BIFOCAL and other CORNEAL IRREGULARITIES can be fitted successfully using this incredible WAVE SOFTWARE.

 

HYBRID CONTACT LENSES

These amazing lenses provide the benefit of gas permeable lenses optics with the comfort of a soft contact lens.

 

SPECIALTY SOFT CONTACT LENSES

For HIGH ASTIGMATISM, MULTIFOCAL, and even KERATOCONUS and other IRREGULAR CORNEAS.

 

CORNEAL SCLERAL CONTACT LENSES

These large diameter GAS PERMEABLE CONTACT LENSES can correct for large amounts of NEARSIGHTEDNESS, ASTIGMATISM, and MULTIFOCAL.

Dr. Schwartz is the provider for Orthokeratology in Mt. Airy, MD. By providing your children the opportunity to stop their eyesight from worsening, they will be 2-3 times LESS likely to develop Cataracts, Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, and other eye diseases.

Regardless of your contact lens choice, we teach all of our patients about proper contact lens care and also possible consequences if proper care is not taken. We continue with long-term follow-ups to monitor the condition of your lenses and to ensure that proper hygiene is being maintained.

  • We carry all of the top contact lens brands!
  • Daily disposables allow contact lens wearers the ability to simply throw away each day's pair of contacts before bed, and open a brand new pair the very next day to enjoy the benefits and comfort of clean, clear, crisp contact lenses.

  • A routine exam won’t provide some of the measurements and testing that are required to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lens wear, and to generate your contact lens Rx.
  • Fortunately for those who don’t like the look, feel or inconvenience of reading glasses, there is another option. Bifocal and multifocal lenses are also available in contact lenses in both soft and Rigid Gas Permeable (RGP) varieties.
  • These rigid lenses aren’t as popular or well-known as soft lenses, but they offer the advantages of durability, crisp vision and high oxygen permeability.
  • Challenges such as astigmatism, presbyopia, keratoconus and dry eyes needn’t be a barrier to contact lens wear, but they do require more time and patience.
  • “I can’t wear soft contacts; I have astigmatism.” This once-true statement is now simply a myth.
