Myopia Management- New contact lens designs are now available at Dr. Rubin's office to help manage the progression of Myopia.

Patients with conditions such as the irregular cornea, keratoconus, and dry eye disease benefit the most. Dr. Rubin has the training and diagnostic equipment such as corneal topography and optical coherence tomography (OCT) for a successful fit. Surprisingly, these lenses tend to be more comfortable for patients than expected.
