Contact Lens Exams

At Dr. Howard A. Sherman, Optometrist, we strive to meet all of your eye and vision care needs. Corrective lens evaluations and prescription management are provided by our optometrist in Highland Park. After a comprehensive eye and vision evaluation, Dr. Howard Sherman will discuss the variety of contact lens options with you to select the type that best fits your vision needs and lifestyle. If you suffer from dry eye, allergies, or recurring eye infections, speak with our staff to determine whether contact lenses are right for you.


Prior to prescribing contact lenses, Dr. Sherman determines what level of vision correction you require in your general eye examination. Refractive status (commonly known as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism depending on your eyes) is evaluated by measuring how the eyes focus when a series of different lenses are placed in front of them. An optometrist may use  a phoropter, lens bar or loose lenses to take these measurements. To schedule an appointment for a vision evaluation with your Highland Park optometrist, call 732-247-1167 today.

Corrective Lenses

After determining the level of refractive error, Dr. Sherman works with you to determine whether contact lenses or glasses are best for your lifestyle. If you suffer from certain conditions, such as dry eye or allergies, glasses may be the most comfortable initial corrective solution. Further testing and discussion may reveal how diet, nutrition punctal plugs or medications can resolve these conditions and increase your comfort and ability to wear contacts  Contact lenses are available in either soft or rigid gas permeable form. Contact lenses need to be changed daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, depending on what type of lens you select. Specialized contact lenses, such as bifocal contact lenses, are also available for patients with special eye conditions and preventive care. Call us at 732-247-1167 if you are interested in learning if contact lenses are a good fit for you.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "We use Anderson Optometry for all of our family’s vision needs. Recently, we had to have our youngest fitted for new glasses and he made the experience fun for her and informative for us. We know Dr. Anderson will always take good care of our family’s eye care and that’s why we wouldn’t go to anywhere else."

  • "Dr. Anderson and his staff are so patient and friendly. Dr. Anderson prescribed me glasses and I had the toughest time picking out frames. They didn’t rush, but instead made helpful suggestions and now I have an awesome pair of frames, not to mention the fact that I can see ten times better than before. You guys are the best!"
