Contact Lenses Information

Dr. Cykiert has been fitting contact lenses for about 20 years and has one of the largest contact lens practices in New York City. He has expertise in fitting all types of contact lenses: hard, gas permeable (semi-soft), soft, soft toric (astigmatic), one week disposable, two week disposable, and daily disposable contact lenses. For people in their 40's who need reading glasses or bifocals he also fits bifocal contact lenses.

Dr. Cykiert has great expertise in fitting patients who have been contact lens "failures" in the past and has a high success rate in getting them to wear contact lenses comfortably.

Since he is a corneal specialist, Dr. Cykiert also is an expert in fitting contact lenses for Keratoconus, a condition where the cornea warps causing very blurry and distorted vision.

Due to tremendous patient satisfaction, Dr. Cykiert has been fitting many patients with 'Acuvue', 'Surevue' and 'One Day Acuvue' contact lenses. These are very sharp and extremely comfortable soft lenses that are made by the Vistakon Division of Johnson & Johnson. They have the extra advantages of having a small "123" mark on them which makes it easy to tell when they are inside out, and also have built in Ultraviolet (UV) Light blocking which is very important since UV light is harmful to the eyes and is known to cause cataracts and other eye problems.

Many of Dr. Cykiert's contact lens patients eventually go on to have LASIK and Laser Vision Correction. Even though their contact lenses are comfortable and they see well, many people have decided to give up the "hassle" of their contact lenses and gain the additional freedom and convenience afforded by LASIK.
