Eye Exams in Newark, NJ

Regardless of your age or physical health, it’s important to have regular eye exams.

During a complete eye exam, your eye doctor will not only determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, but will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.

What Sets Dr. Feinstein's Practice Apart

Comprehensive Eye Exams

  • All comprehensive exams are truly comprehensive, not just an exam to measure a patient’s prescription.
  • Exams include glaucoma and cataract testing and dilation to check for eye diseases.

Technology

  • Visual Field Analyzer – This device measures peripheral vision which is how glaucoma is diagnosed and managed.
  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)- This device is the gold standard for evaluation of the back of the eye. Just like a CT scan can scan a brain, with the OCT we can now image the layers of the retina to check for diabetic changes in the eye and for macular degeneration that was previously unable to be seen.
  • Retinal Camera- This camera takes digital photographs of the inside of the eye. These pictures can be shown to the patient right on the Doctor’s computer.

Contact Lenses

  • Most patients don’t realize that contact lenses come in different sizes and shapes. Since all eyes aren’t the same, contact lenses must be fitted for the individual. One size does not fit all. All of our patients who come in for contact lenses try on sample lenses of one or more brands to assure that their contacts are comfortable before they order them.

Guiding Principle

  • Dr. Feinstein says, “Every patient I see, whether the visit is for a straightforward eye examination or a complicated glaucoma case gets my full attention while in the office. When I make a diagnostic decision or a recommendation for glasses or contact lenses, I always think, ‘What would I do if those were my eyes,’ and then I make my decision accordingly.”
