ONE DAY DISPOSABLE CONTACT LENSES
One day lenses are absolutely the healthiest and best way of wearing contact lenses. No fuss no mess, just take the off and throw them away. Always fresh, always clean and always new. There is no better way to pamper yourself with the benefit of one day disposables. For infrequent contact lens wearers one day contact lenses may be the least expensive and healthiest way of wearing contacts.
TWO WEEK DISPOSABLE CONTACT LENSES
Two week lenses seem to be our patients choice of wearing contacts lenses. Two week lenses are removed every night and are replaced every 14 calendar days. These lenses offer a safe, healthy and economical way to wear disposable contacts. Two week lenses are most economical when purchased in a one year supply.
MONTHLY DISPOSABLE CONTACT LENSES
Monthly lenses are also an option for wearing contact lenses. Like all types of lenses, when worn properly monthly lenses can provide a safe and economical way to wear contact lenses.
Sleeping in contact lenses
Some patients ask about being able to sleep with contacts lenses on their eyes. While we do not always recommend sleeping with lenses there are just times when our patients lifestyle demands it. There are many brands of contact lenses and you cannot just sleep with any of them. If sleeping with your contact lenses is a must for you, the eye doctors at Steinway Eye Care are where you need to be. We will carefully explain your responsibilities for sleeping with contacts and we will help you choose the best contacts for your eyes.

Paragon CRT available with our astoria eye doctor
Now you can be free of daytime contact lenses or glasses and enjoy great vision during your daily activities without undergoing surgery! Recent clinical research combined with the latest corneal surface mapping technology, computerized manufacturing and space age oxygen-breathing materials have brought new science to corneal reshaping.
Corneal Refractive Therapy(CRT) is a non-surgical process clinically developed to reshape the cornea while you sleep. The result is the temporary correction of myopia with or without moderate astigmatism.
Similar in appearance to standard contact lenses, Paragon CRT therapeutic lenses gently reshape the corneal surface during sleep to provide clear, natural vision when the lenses are removed upon waking.
Because Paragon CRT offers freedom from glasses and the hassle of wearing contact lenses during the day, this leading-edge technology can enhance the lifestyle of those requiring vision correction. Active individuals can freely participate in sports without the interference of glasses or bothersome contacts. Eye irritation and dryness, sometimes associated with contact lens wear due to outside dust and pollutants, are also eliminated.
