Optical and Contacts

Visit Our Optical Shop

At East Coast Eye, we offer a comprehensive range of optical solutions to cater to your individual needs. Our experienced team is dedicated to helping you achieve clear and comfortable vision.

Glasses

At our optical shop, you have the assurance that we’ll fill your prescriptions accurately. You also have the full backing of our physicians in case you have any difficulty adjusting to a prescription change. This is one of many ways we separate ourselves from some of the local competition. Our glasses come with a 1-year unconditional warranty against breakage of frames and lenses (but not against loss), and we offer our patients free adjustments on their eyeglass frames even if they purchased them elsewhere. For your convenience, you may select new glasses or drop off existing glasses for adjustment at one office and pick them up at another. Our employees can courier orders from one location to another upon request.

Contacts

Contact lenses are another focus of ours here at the KBT Optical Shop. Our doctors will evaluate and find the best possible fit for our patients. At that point, we will educate and supply our patients with the highest level of care to ensure they are in the newest and best possible contact lens products. We offer all brands and keep our pricing competitive. We offer free trials when necessary and can ship orders directly to patients’ homes. Be sure to let our doctors know if contact lenses are something you may be interested in. We also take outside prescriptions for contact lenses and eyeglasses as long as they are valid.

Eye Prescriptions Made Easy

In addition to providing comprehensive eye examinations, we have an established optical shop at each of our three office locations. Our Ocean Township office houses our optical laboratory, where we maintain a large inventory of lenses ready for cutting, edging, and installing into your frames, as well as complete pair purchases. From single vision and flat top bifocals to the newest in progressive addition lenses, we offer all types of optical lenses. Coatings and treatments, such as ultra-violet protective tints, scratch-resistant coatings, blue light protective coatings, anti-glare coatings, Transitions®, high refractive index, and high-impact resistant polycarbonate safety lenses, are available as well. There is a wide array of frame options at all three of our locations, ranging from cost-conscious budget brands to the newest trends in the designer world of frames.

We also service all age ranges, starting with infants and extending to seniors. Repair services are also available without an appointment. We just request you call before arrival. In an effort to satisfy all patients, we do offer the option to have an updated prescription lens placed into your own existing frames after they’ve been inspected by one of our trained employees. We invite you to ask about our complete eyeglass discount packages, as we have pricing to fit everyone’s budget.

Still Have Questions?

If you have any further questions about glasses or contact lenses you can simply call us and speak with a doctor. Or you can come in for a free consultation.

What Is Myopia?

June 3, 2024

Myopia, or nearsightedness, occurs when light does not focus correctly onto the retina due to the eye’s length being longer than normal. This causes blurry...

Recommendations for Wearing Contact Lenses

To ensure that your contact lenses do not cause you any problems, we suggest that you follow the guidelines below:

  • If a lens is uncomfortable, do not leave it in your eye. Try cleaning, re-wetting, and reinserting it. If the usual maneuvers don’t help, see your eye doctor.
  • If your eye (or both eyes) remains uncomfortable, irritating, painful, or red even after removing the lens, have your eye examined. It may be scratched or infected.
  • While the use of “multipurpose” solutions is both popular and convenient, some lens-wearers develop allergies or toxic reactions to them. This problem is much more common when you switch from one brand to another. We strongly advise finding a brand that works well and does not create any problems. Continue using that same brand, even if a competitive brand is available at a lower price.
  • If your tolerance of contacts becomes progressively worse, you may be developing an allergic reaction. Remove your contact and have your eyes examined.
  • Never sleep in your lenses, even if they are “approved” for extended wear. Remove them and disinfect them each day (unless you have daily disposable lenses which should be thrown out daily).
  • Keep a copy of your contact lens prescription, including the manufacturer, model, size, power, and base curve. If you need a replacement and have this information, a new lens can be obtained quickly. Without this information, refitting might be needed.
  • Finally, if you are fully dependent on contact lens correction, have an up-to-date pair of glasses as a backup. Wear them regularly (such as in the evening after removing the contacts) so that you can still function with them if you are in a situation where you cannot wear contacts or don’t have any.
