See the Benefits of Our Eye Exam in New York City, New York

No matter how you look at it, eye care is an expense. Yet that doesn’t mean it’s always worthwhile to chase after the lowest price for your eye exam! When it comes to the health of your eyesight, you need to be confident that your eye exam provides a precise vision prescription and accurate diagnoses. And the cheapest options cannot always promise this level of exactness. In contrast, a reasonably priced eye exam by our New York City eye doctor uses top skill and advanced technology – so you can depend upon the results.

Many eye diseases can be quickly and easily diagnosed during a comprehensive eye exam, pediatric eye exam and Contact lens eye exam. If you were diagnosed with an eye disease, such as Cataracts, Glaucoma, Macular degeneration, Diabetic retinopathy, or Dry eye, you may be overwhelmed by the diagnosis and confused about what happens next. Will you need medications or surgery – now or in the future? Is LASIK eye and vision surgery an option for you ? Our New York City eye doctor has prepared the following answers to your questions about eye disease.

Eye Exams with Maximum Value in New York City, New York

We know you may still be wondering if there are more benefits to getting an eye exam at your eye doctor instead of getting a cheaper eye exam at the closest retailer. Let’s look at the reasons:

    • 1. Personalized Eye Care When you visit our eye care clinic for an eye exam, our eye doctor will start your appointment with a series of questions about your medical history and lifestyle. If you have any visual complaints or questions, this is the time to speak up. We are here to listen and to address your concerns. This information is the basis for designing the best plan to care for your long-lasting vision. Opposed to cheaper, generic eye exams, our eye exams are not generic and standardized. Instead, we customize testing to meet your individual needs.
    • 2. Comprehensive Eye Evaluations Checking visual acuity is only the beginning of your eye exam; our New York City eye doctor will check much more! We will also assess functional vision skills, such as eye mobility, eye teaming, and focusing, and inner eye health. Depending upon your requirements, we may also use digital imagery to analyze your retina and optic nerve, as well as use tonometry to look for the signs of glaucoma.
    • 3. Cutting-edge Technologies Technology is always on the move, changing and improving, and we stay focused on the latest developments in optometric equipment. Our eye doctor is committed to furnishing our eye care center with the most modern technology, so you benefit from detailed diagnoses and progressive treatments. The equipment in our New York City eye care clinic includes OCT Scans and Digital Retinal Imaging, Daytona Optomap, and Visual Field Testing. These devices enable us to examine your eye tissues efficiently, safely, and painlessly – and you won’t need to wait for results because the high-resolution imaging is instant.
    • 4. Eye Care that Considers Your Overall Health Too We value both your vision and your general well-being. Our eye exam inspects much more than just your sight. That’s because eyes can also give a view of your general body health. Specific diseases, such as high cholesterol, diabetes, and high blood pressure, can be seen on your inner eye tissues before you notice any problems. When these dangerous health conditions are left untreated, they can cause damage to your eyes and the rest of your body. If we detect any of these signs, we’ll refer you to the most appropriate local medical care provider. Cheaper eye exams will not provide you with this level of compassionate and professional healthcare.

In sum, a cheaper eye exam is not always your best option!

Manhattan Vision Associates is thrilled to announce that our office is now open! Your health is important to us, and we want you to feel confident about returning for your next in-person appointment. With that being said, we have expanded safety measures, and, in many respects your patient experience will be more comfortable, modern, and efficient than ever before.

We made a few changes to protect you and our care team. For example:

Checking in Before You Arrive: We will have a streamlined check-in process. Before you arrive, forms and co-pays can be processed remotely. Where possible, you will skip the front desk, avoid unnecessary time in the waiting room and proceed directly to the technicians’ room.

Screening at Welcome Station: Upon arrival, patients will be provided with a mask if they are not wearing one. In addition to pre-screening for COVID-19 symptoms before you arrive, you will be screened upon your arrival, and temperature will be taken.

Staff and Patient Protection: Our care team follow CDC guidelines, always have the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) and wear it. We have also established screening and testing protocols for our care team.

Disinfection and Cleaning: Our location is repeatedly and thoroughly sanitized throughout each day. Exam rooms are cleaned extensively between patient visits.

Visitors: For your safety, and the safety of our patients and staff, there are limitations on visitors. We will continue to follow the NYS Department of Health guidelines. Our visitor policy is available on our website.

MVA is seeing patients by appointment only (including glasses or contact lenses pick-ups). Please call (212) 688-4277 or email jflores@mvaivr.com to schedule an appointment.

We will continue to focus on delivering eyecare at the highest safety standards. We remain dedicated to serving our patients and community. From all of us at Manhattan Vision Associates, thank you for trusting us with your eyecare.

Be well, stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
