How to Prepare for Your Appointment

To schedule an appointment or for questions, contact us at 212-938-4001.


If you are a contact lens wearer, please bring your contact lens case, contact lens solutions, and any contact lens plungers that you may use to your appointments.

At this time, there is no scientific evidence that wearing contact lenses increases the risk of contracting COVID-19. Contact lens wear is safe as long as you follow good contact lens hygiene.

  1. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water for 20 sec. Then dry them thoroughly with a paper towel prior to handling contact lenses.
  2. If you are wearing daily disposable lenses, discard them daily after each use.
  3. Clean and replace your contact lenses and the case as recommended by your eye doctor.
  4. Do not sleep, shower, or swim in your lenses.
  5. Discontinue contact lens wear if you feel ill or have a pink eye.
