Your Long Island Specialty Contact Lens Center

If you have Keratoconus, severe dry eyes, or irregular astigmatism from eye surgery or an eye injury, you may have difficulty wearing contact lenses.

Our optometrist Dr. Shane Galan offers patients from Nassau County Long Island, specialized contact lenses including Scleral lenses and specialty contacts for dry eyes. Using the latest technology, techniques, and contact lenses Dr. Galan is able to provide comfortable contacts for even the most complex cases.

CONTACT LENSES FOR DRY EYES


We specialize in contact lenses for patients who experience discomfort and dry eyes from contact lenses. Depending on the reason for your discomfort our Optometrist Dr. Galan will recommend one of two options for dry eyes. The first option is daily disposables such as Dailies Total 1 which prevent irritating deposit build up, are ultra breathable, and integrate hydrating components into the design. The second option is Sceral Lenses, which retain moisture due to their unique design and reservoir.

MULTIFOCAL CONTACT LENSES


Multifocal contact lenses are a great option for patients with Presbyopia. Presbyopia is an element of aging usually occurring in the late 40’s which makes seeing close difficult. We tend to associate Presbyopia with reading glasses, however multifocal contacts offer a built in solution which utilizes different powers in different parts of the lens to allow you to effortlessly switch back and forth from close, medium, and far tasks. Multifocal contacts are available in soft and rigid gas permeable options.

ALL THE LATEST CONTACTS


Our contact lens center offers patients a wide variety of contact lenses for your needs. Toric, RGP, GP, OrthoK, Hybrid, Piggy back and more options are available. After your contact lens eye exam Dr. Galan will talk with you about the options that are best suited for your particular needs. Depending on the situation there may be more than one option that is a good fit and Dr. Galan will explain the benefits and weaknesses of each option. Elements to consider are comfort, breath-ability, clarity of vision, ease of use, and ease of care.

Keratoconus

Keratoconus


Keratoconus is a condition that can develop in the pre-teen years when the cornea starts to change its shape. Associated with these changes are extreme sensitivity to light or glare, blurry vision (like being unable to view the blackboard), and sudden decreases in vision. To get a better picture of Keratoconus, imagine that the top white surface of an eye having lots of ridges and bumps that would prevent a regular contact lens to rest on and adhere to the eye surface. These surface variations are unique to each individual, where some may be able to get by with contacts or glasses, while for others, hard lenses or scleral lenses are the preferred alternative.

Because of the irregular shape of the cornea, it is extremely important that a person with Keratoconus has accurate measurements including both a 3D map of the corneal and the thickness.

The Challenge Of Keratoconus


The real challenge for patients with Keratoconus isn’t from a lack of alternatives but the constant change in prescriptions nearly every year. In certain cases of Keratoconus, the changes become so extreme that people turn to Corneal transplants.

For those living with Keratoconus, finding a knowledgeable and reliable optometrist with the latest technology is essential, especially since there are solutions for visual comfort that may come up short. Dr. Shane Galan at Diamond Vision has been fitting scleral lenses for Keratoconus patients, providing the desired comfort and clarity that’s not found anywhere else. People often visit Dr. Galan for a second opinion about their Keratoconus or irregular corneas just to be sure that their current prescription is accurate.

Options For Patients With Keratoconus


While hybrid contact lenses supply better quality of vision for irregular shaped eyes, the hard components used may not provide comfort for some. Patients could turn to scleral lenses, which are large gas permeable contact lenses that cover the entire corneal surface of the eye, ensuring greater comfort.

Fortunately, at Diamond Vision, Dr. Galan provides a variety of specialty contact lens treatments that can be custom tailored for nearly any case of Keratoconus, irregular shaped corneas, or extreme astigmatisms. Through years of experience and a knowledgeable, caring staff, there’s no other optometry practice that has the commitment to expertise, patient care, and consistent, successful outcomes. To receive the best fit possible for your eyes, schedule a consultation with us today.

OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT US

Absolutely would highly be recommend this business.

Just a quick review. The staff are all friendly and professional as is Dr. Galan. Had an issue with one lens and brought back the glasses, absolutely no hesitation they took back the glasses, and made it all right! Was also able to get the better lens and cannot believe how sharp my vision is now. Absolutely would highly be recommend this business.

eye exam

I highly recommend for anyone who wants a thorough exam and to be fit for contacts or glasses correctly.

I was having trouble with my contacts and went to my ophthalmologist and was told there is nothing wrong with my vision, my eyes or my contacts. After seeing Dr. Galan, he was able to diagnose my issue very quickly. It was actually a simple problem solved within a couple weeks and now I ordered new contact lenses by him and I am thrilled. He took the time to hear my problems. He took the time to figure the issue out. He also took the time to set me up with several trial Lenses for a few weeks for me to see which ones I liked the most. I was most appreciative to his attentiveness and to his staff. I highly recommend for anyone who wants a thorough exam and to be fit for contacts or glasses correctly.

You walk in the door and are welcomed like you are at a friends home, and you are

We have been patients of Dr Galan for 3 years. We have tried the chain stores, quite honestly I never knew there was such a professional available. The Doctor has equipment to test every part of the eye for health. He tests and then explains the situations he has seen, if anything is not as it should be he will find it. His office staff is also beyond stellar. You walk in the door and are welcomed like you are at a friends home, and you are. The receptionist, the consultants are happy to answer any questions you may have forgotten to ask, they get the answer right away. When the exam is done you are introduced to Mindy, who in MY OPINION is a lady most knowledgeable regarding choosing a frame, (in your price range), that looks nice on you and you can ask all the questions you need, she has a heart of gold and patience. A real true customer service Eye Professional. She is indeed a professional, can answer questions chain store people cannot and will not answer, she is not just someone who is there to show you glasses, she knows your needs and is enormously helpful. I break my glasses on the average of once a month, I visit Mindy quite often. With a sincere smile and a “happy to see you” she goes to work on undoing the damage I have done. I recommend this practice and all the associates who gladly serve you. My husband needed special glasses for bike riding (long distance). He was a little late in ordering them. Mindy went out of her way. jumping thru hoops to get them for him before he left.If you are in need of a Eye Doctor of excellence, surrounded by a staff of caring people who are available to you any time, please try Dr Galan. We thank him sincerely for all he has done for us in making us comfortable with the right eye glasses. With appreciation galore

Never will you find a better home for your optical care.

This was a previous post I had written about Dr. Shane Galan and his outstanding staff at Diamond Vision Rockville Centre: “A phenomenal experience (as always). Dr. Galan and his amazing staff are the quintessence of friendliness, knowledge-ability and professionalism. If you’re looking for the best optical care with an amazing staff who go above and beyond to make you comfortable, do not hesitate to make your appointment with Dr. Galan.” I still feel the same way about this wonderful practice if not more so as the years go on. Never will you find a better home for your optical care.

Wish all doctors were like him!

Dr Galan is the best! Been seeing him since I was a kid and plan to have my kids see him as well. I actually first started seeing Dr Galan back when his office was located in queens many years ago. Then when the practice moved to Long Island, he was so amazing I didn’t mind the 30 minute drive for my appointments. He is incredibly thorough, friendly, funny, and helpful. Wish all doctors were like him!

I have been going to Diamond Vision for over 10 years. Dr. Galan is friendly, personable, knowledgeable and honest. He is extremely thorough and takes his time. You never feel rushed. He welcomes questions and will explain his answers in easy to understand terms. My children also see Dr. Galan as I would not trust another eye doctor. He is great with kids. Very patient and kind. His staff are friendly and greet patients with a warm welcome. Dr. Galan and his staff are always willing to help and have your best interest at heart. Dr. Galan is the best eye doctor and reason enough to go to Diamond Vision.

If you have a problem with Keratoconus I highly recommend you call Dr. Galan

Keratoconus – Dr. Galan was referred to me by another Dr at OCLI. It was the best referral I’ve ever been given. He took the time to explain the problem and the process. He explained a plan of action to address my condition and followed thought with it. Dr. Galan is a very patient, caring and attentive person. He took complete care of everything and I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor. If you have a problem with Keratoconus I highly recommend you call Dr. Galan for a consultation and be patient. He will make sure you are satisfied before leaving his office. Thank you Dr. Galan, YOUR the BEST.

Throughout this process, I always felt that Dr. Galan would work with me until a solution was found.

I found Diamond Vision because they accept my vision insurance, VSP. From my very first visit, I have been extremely happy with the quality of the care I’ve received from them. Dr. Galan is friendly, kind, and a very good doctor. The office staff is very efficient and pleasant. The office is clean and comfortable. There are many many frames to choose from. Mindy’s help is invaluable in creating the look you are looking for.The main purpose of my first visit was to obtain progressive lenses – I need both distance and reading correction for my eyes. Dr. Galan created several different lens combinations, hoping to find one that would work for me. As it turns out, I am one of the few people I know for whom progressive lenses do not work; I was unable to get used to them. When it became clear that progressives were not going to work, Dr. Galan made bifocals for me and they are perfect. Throughout this process, I always felt that Dr. Galan would work with me until a solution was found. He was gracious and professional.A recent visit for my yearly exam was a very positive experience as well. I recommend Diamond Vision very highly and without reservation.

Eye exam, optometrist

Definitely will be recommending to my family and friends.

I don’t normally write reviews but you have to give credit where it’s due. The staff were so helpful and friendly, the price excellent and Dr.Galan definitely goes above and beyond to make sure you get the quality care that you deserve.Definitely will be recommending to my family and friends.

Ortho Keratology review

Simply the best! I have been going to Dr. Galan for several years and when my son started having vision problems at 5 years old, I started bringing him there also. At 11His eyes and prescription started to get worse. Dr. Galan suggested a new eye care therapy that might help him. It is called Ortho Keratology. My son wears a special pair of contact lenses overnight, while he sleeps and his vision is perfect when he wakes and removes the contacts. It took a bit to get used to but, his prescription has slowed down and he has more confidence and is a lot happier without wearing the glasses every day, only once a week to rest his eyes. Amazing! Thanks to Dr. Galan and his awesome staff of Mindy, Denise, Gwen and Donna. They work with you on everything. Feels like family. Great, Great eye and people care.

My entire family has been going here for years. Very knowledgeable, superior service and great selection.

Anyone who is looking for a true expert in contact lens, should seek out Dr. Galan.

I normally do not write reviews on google, but I am making an exception. I was a former patient of Dr. Feldman for many years and was very concerned that when he retired I would not find another Doctor with the same level of service and expertise. I was wrong. I have been seeing Dr. Galan for a year and a half and I could not be happier. He is extremely knowledgeable about contact lenses. He takes the time to insure that he is completely satisfied with your vision and comfort . You are never rushed and any questions that I have are answered in full detail . His staff,especially Denise is an asset to the practice.Anyone who is looking for a true expert in contact lens, should seek out Dr. Galan.

This is best eye dr I have seen in my life.

Dr. Galan walked into the treatment room with happy face and introduced him self to me. Which made me feel lot better. At that moment I know that he is a friendly dr. He was able to understand my issue and able to help me. This is best eye dr I have seen in my life.

I am formally a patient of dr. Feldman whose practice merged with Dr Galan. The service continues to be wonderful with a great staff and great attention to my eyes. I travel all the way from New York City just to see this doctor.

This is the Best practice on L.I.

I have been a patient of Dr. Galan for years. After advising him that I wanted to try contact lenses again, he set out to find the right lens for my condition, keratoconus. Dr. Galan researched the options available to me and found a comfortable, soft lens that was specifically designed for keratoconus. The lenses are amazing, comfort and vision is unbelievable!! I am grateful to Dr. Galan for taking the time and effort to get the perfect fit. Whether you wear contacts, glasses or are considering either, Diamond Vision is where you should go! Read all the posts, there’s one constant, Dr. Galan is an incredibly knowledgeable eye doctor who is all about your comfort and gives his patients the time they need. The staff is amazing as well. They’re professional, talented and very nice! This is the Best practice on L.I.

There is no one else I would trust my eye care to

I first met Shane Galan right after he purchased this practice. I was impressed with him that first day, and have only become more comfortable and reliant upon him since. His knowledge is complete, and no question goes unanswered. He goes beyond the norm (for a doctor of any kind today) to make sure I understand what he’s saying and why. There is no one else I would trust my eye care to.Thank you Shane for your wonderful care!

I would HIGHLY recommend Dr Galan and his team for both children and adults. EXCELLENT!

My 8 year old daughter and I recently visited Dr. Galan for the first time. I found the entire staff to be very nice — and they made my daughter feel very much at ease for her first visit. Dr. Galan was very nice, attentive to our questions and took the time to explain everything to both of us. There is a broad selection of eyeglasses and I found a pair that I liked very quickly. Overall, it was a very positive visit for both of us with wonderful customer service. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr Galan and his team for both children and adults. EXCELLENT!

Eye exam, optometrist

He’s the best!

There are probably a thousand optometrists in Manhattan but I drive an hour out to Rockville Centre to see Dr. Galan because of his extraordinary expertise in fitting contact lenses. He’s also a very kind, thoughtful, and patient doctor; and the people who work with him are equally wonderful. (Mindy always finds the perfect glasses for my face and for my friends’ faces, and Denise is so warm and helpful.) I never wanted contact lenses because I was so scared about putting something in my eyes, but when my close-up and distance visions started getting bad, I didn’t want to care three pairs of glasses, and a good friend recommended Dr. Galan. He tried out dozens of lenses until he found the right one for each eye and taught me how to put them in and take them out. He also discovered my cataracts and is monitoring them and changing my prescription to help me avoid surgery. He’s the best!

Eye exam, optometrist

Would recommend to anyone!!

Dr. Galan is the best! He’s very friendly and the staff there is the best. Would recommend to anyone!!

has my business and loyalty

Service is excellent. Dr. Feldman was my Dr-(hope he’s doing well) but now Dr. Galan. Main reason I love going is because DENISE is just such a pleasure to deal with. She makes it so EASY – orders my lenses, mails them out, whatever I need- Denise always makes it happen. I’m so glad she is there – I was skeptical at first but she made me a believer and now has my business and loyalty. Thank you Denise!!!

Eye exam, optometrist

excellent service and advice

Dr. Galan has been my optometrist for the past six years and he’s given me excellent service and advice. He switched me over to daily contacts versus two-week contacts to improve on reducing risk of infection. One time, when I had a concern that a contact was lost in my eye, he was available to see me immediately. Highly recommended.

Eye exam, optometrist

always goes the extra mile to be helpful

I’ve been a client for a long time. Dr. Galan not only continues to be a wonderful eye doctor but always goes the extra mile to be helpful when extra care is needed.

Eye exam, optometrist

As the saying goes, you have tried the rest, now you have found the BEST

We have been patients of Dr Galan for many years, we have always been more than delighted with our experience. Yesterday, I stopped in to get an appointment to discuss the progressive prescription I recently got. I did not think I was using them correctly. Without an appointment Dr Galan saw me, retested, and said he would have the lens remade if I agreed, which I did, and if they still were not right he would change them to reading glasses, which I have had success with. Just imagine, a Doctor that will see you without an appointment (not even in the ER), just imagine this TERRIFIC service at no extra charge. Where on Long Island do you find quality, professional knowledge, willing to go the extra mile? The office staff (all of them) are polite and most friendly. When the Doctor is finished with his exam Mindy sits with you for as long as it takes to show you a frame (if one is needed) that you are happy with, She measures to be sure all will be made correctly. Mindy is one of the kindest, hard working, knowledgeable ladies I have ever met. Diamond Vision is not just to examine, get you glasses and good bye. They are there to be sure what they deliver is eyecare that is great for you, and they stand behind everything. My husband and I are absolutely delighted with the family atmosphere of service that is given. I am a professional at losing, bending, scratching thru carelessness. Mindy will work with a frame that I have twisted, lost an arm, no kidding. I have never felt embarrassed as I have in other places, so glad we discovered Diamond Vision. On a personal level, the office was familiar with my dog (who I loved). When she left us I had 2 pair of glasses that needed the ICU, Mindy fixed them for me and she was so very compassionate about the dog, as were the reception ladies. I have never felt so appreciated as a client, so welcomed when I walk in, sometimes I walk in just to say hello. I will never leave this practice. As the saying goes, you have tried the rest, now you have found the BEST. Thanks to all –Dr Galan, Mindy, Gwen, my apologies for the names I have forgotten. Karen and Fred Erskine

He is committed to his patients.

Dr. Shane Galan is a consummate professional and sensitive to his patient’s needs. He listens before the diagnosis. I have been to a number of eye doctors in the past. Dr. Galan is by far the best. In my specific case, he was the only eye doctor that chose to treat my condition. It is an unusual one that other other eye Doctors did not want to take the time to treat since it requires regular treatment and time.I am completely satisfied with my treatment by Dr Galan. He is committed to his patients.

He offers trial pairs of contacts and does not pressure the client to spend buckets of money, but to choose what they feel is the best fit. The office is neat and tidy. The staff there is also very helpful from picking out a pair of glasses to ordering contact lenses.

ONLY Optometrist who made it possible for me to get my advanced Color Vision Test

Dr. Shane Gallan/ Diamond Vision was the ONLY Optometrist who made it possible for me to get my advanced Color Vision Test required for my job with the Federal Government, I called out atleast 45 doctors in and around NYC & Long Island and no one seemed to help or know about the tests I was looking for i.e: Farnsworth and Lanthony D-15 which cost out of pocket for me but I was losing hope about being able to take one where I live, I was being consulted to go all the way to Maryland which seemed insane considering I lived in a major city like New York and no one conducted these tests! I would recommend his services to anyone who needs a advanced eye testing or vision clearance for Private or Government/ Military jobs!!!! Thanks a lot to his amazing staff members Diane and Mindy who constantly followed up with my case and appointment, I am truly grateful to them all!!

I always feel like a valued patient at Diamond Vision.

My husband and I are always pleased with our visits to Diamond Vision. Dr. Galan makes us feel comfortable, addresses our questions and concerns. and is very knowledgeable and personable. My last visit there was to purchase a pair of polarized sunglasses that Dr. Galan had recommended,, since I am fair skinned and light eyed. Mindy had ordered a pair for me that were out of stock, and when they came in she was very helpful while I tried them on and compared them to others they had in the store. I never felt rushed, and was able to leave that day knowing I had taken the time to make the right choice. I always feel like a valued patient at Diamond Vision.

Made reading easy again, despite the happy tears that flowed from my eyes.

I went to Dr. Galan to see if he could do anything for my low vision problems. My sister, an eye doctor, reached out on my behalf to her national network and Dr. Galan wrote a sweet note offering to help me as much as possible. Frustrated from not being able to do my regular tasks and exasperated that reading was incredibly difficult, I saw Dr. Galan. His energetic disposition, optimism, and relentless encouragement to keep trying different options which most improved my vision, was totally refreshing! Ultimately, I chose to purchase a big magnifying apparatus which made reading easy again, despite the happy tears that flowed from my eyes.

I had a great experience at Dr. Galan’s office. It was incredibly easy to setup my appointment and the times are very accommodating. When I arrived I had some quick paperwork to fill out, then saw the technician very quickly. Afterwards the Doctor came in, walked me through all the steps of the examination and answered all my questions thoroughly. I was able to pick out glasses I really liked that were covered under my plan with no issues and received them in 1 week. Overall, I highly recommend this doctor.

I DEF. RECOMMEND TRYING THEM FIRST

I decided to make Diamond Vision my first stop since they had the most Google reviews compared to their competition in a 2-mile radius. As soon as I came in; I was greeted by their staff and a Sales Consultant was assigned to me right away. The Sales person was very nice and patient. She definitely helped me a lot by narrowing down the best pair of glasses for me; She made this process so easy. All the other staff in the office were very quiet and professional.Their merchandise is great, and they have a big selection. IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME COMING TO THIS ESTABLISHMENT, I DEF. RECOMMEND TRYING THEM FIRST. Just make sure to know how much your insurance will cover before you start looking at frames since you don’t want to pay too much out of pocket.

Eye exam, optometrist

My kids and I love Dr. Galan. My children feel very comfortable and the location is very convenient to us. They cater to all of our eye care needs.

The lenses that Dr. Galan has me in right now are incredible

I’m extremely happy to have found Diamond Vision. My wife has moved into the world of needing progressives and they were awesome working with her. I have KC and the lenses that Dr. Galan has me in right now are incredible. I’ve been through many doctors in my past because of my kerataconus and its difficult to find someone who can fit for it and Shane Galan did an awesome job. I don’t like changing doctors and I’ve found the doctor that my family will stick with for a very long time.

Eye exam, optometrist

I recommend anyone that needs treatment

I never used to get my eyes checked. The quality of the service at Diamond Vision keeps me coming back. Dr. Galan is passionate about what he does and treats each patient with respect and care as if they were family. I recommend anyone that needs treatment for their eyes to go see Dr. Galan ASAP!

The latest in contact lens technology

This eye doctor is great. I’ve been wearing contacts for 30+ years and he changed my whole experience in one visit! After performing a “routine” exam, Dr. Galan presented me with new options using the latest in contact lens technology. He continued to work with me to “fine tune” my vision in ways I couldn’t previously imagine. Though he can’t stop the aging process, he certainly knows how to correct for it. Oh, did I mention he’s a great guy?

Eye exam, optometrist

He changed my life and I am forever grateful to him for that!!!

The minute you meet Dr. Galan, you immediately love him. He is extremely personable and warm and makes sure his patients are comfortable and at ease. The showroom is cool, the selection is awesome and his staff is equally friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Galan is on the cutting edge of technology for contact lenses and fitted me with soft lenses for those with keratoconus. He studied the curvature of my eyes, took measurements and I walked out of his office with contacts 10 days later. My vision is amazing, the comfort is unbelievable and I couldn’t be happier!! Here’s the bottom line, Dr. Galan is a very talented and thorough eye doctor who’s incredibly focused on achieving his patient’s total satisfaction. He changed my life and I am forever grateful to him for that!!!

Eye exam, optometrist

I would highly recommend this office.

Dr. Gaian and the staff were very professional and friendly from the time we made the appointment till its completion we were made to feel comfortable and informed. I would highly recommend this office.

Beautiful selection of frames to choose from.

My kids and I have been visiting Dr Galan for our eye care for about five years now. No long waits for appointments, and they have Saturday hours. You are seen quickly upon arrival and the staff is very friendly. My kids are covered under both my and my husband’s vision plan. They prefer Dr Galan for their eye exam. I often wonder why some people wear ugly frames, they have a beautiful selection of frames to choose from.

Eye exam, optometrist

Driven to provide high quality care

Great experience. Wonderful people. Dr. Galan is awesome! Highly recommended!!!My family has been coming to Dr. Galan for several years now. It’s great to see that as the office has grown, the attention to detail and customer experience has not changed. When I wasn’t 100% satisfied with my glasses, he insisted we change them. No hesitation. That is dedication. He really cares.We have worked together to ensure best experience with contacts, glasses and prescription sunglasses too. Dr. Galan and staff are clearly driven to provide high quality care and know the right questions to ask to deliver.

Eye exam, optometrist

Every visit is a great experience.

Dr. Galan is a fantastic optometrist. He is friendly, knowledgeable and always takes the time to thoroughly explain the various tests and their purpose.

If you need a really good optometrist you will not be disappointed

You would think that going to the eye doctor would be pretty straight forward, but I’ve been going to different optometrist since the 7th grade and it’s never been such a pleasure as it was here! I called about seven different places trying to get an appointment after 6pm, since I work 9-5, and this was the only place that had no problem with a last minute request and late appt. The receptionist was also really pleasant. I work in hospitality and am usually really critical of customer service. Doctor Shane was first rate! He explained everything to me, was pleasant and professional. You can tell he truly loves what he does.He let me take two different contact brands home to try out which one I preferred and made sure that my insurance info was correct so that I would get the full benefit amount. I didn’t look at the selection of eye glasses bc I was there for contacts so I can’t speak about that. But if you need a really good optometrist you will not be disappointed with this place!

My husband and I went to Diamond Vision last week for eye exams and both had a really great experience. Dr. Galan is knowledgable, professional and thorough, and took the time to explain things. In addition, he has a friendly and upbeat personality and made us feel welcome and valued as patients. The office was clean and comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Galan and Diamond Vision in Rockville Centre!

I’m forever a patient.

Dr Galan and his entire staff were so friendly and professional to both me and my entire family. His place is modern in equipment and top styles of frames but a throwback to a time when doctors cared about their patients. Loved the selection of top stylish frames and my daughter was sized and taught properly on contact lens care- very important. Was a great experience- and I’m forever a patient.

Eye exam, optometrist

I drive an hour out to Rockville Centre to see Dr. Galan

There are probably a thousand optometrists in Manhattan but I drive an hour out to Rockville Centre to see Dr. Galan because of his extraordinary expertise in fitting contact lenses. He’s also a very kind, thoughtful, and patient doctor; and the people who work with him are equally wonderful. (Mindy always finds the perfect glasses for my face and for my friends’ faces, and Denise is so warm and helpful.) I never wanted contact lenses because I was so scared about putting something in my eyes, but when my close-up and distance visions started getting bad, I didn’t want to care three pairs of glasses, and a good friend recommended Dr. Galan. He tried out dozens of lenses until he found the right one for each eye and taught me how to put them in and take them out. He also discovered my cataracts and is monitoring them and changing my prescription to help me avoid surgery. He’s the best!

Eye exam, optometrist

you guys are stellar!

I’ve been coming to Dr. Shane Galan’s office for over 5 years and him and the staff are always so friendly and helpful. I never have to wait for more than 5 minutes to meet with the Doctor. He is honest and always offers the best solutions to my eye problems. Thank you Diamond Vision, you guys are stellar!

Eye exam, optometrist

I even travel from queens to see him

I’ve been seeing Dr. Galan for my eye exams for over 15 years. He is always very knowledgeable and thorough. His contact lens prices are reasonable. Recently I lost a pair of disposible lenses on a trip upstate and Dr Galan shipped me a replacement pair within a day. I even travel from queens to see him because I know he will always be honest with me about my eye care needs.

the latest in contact lens technology zen lens scleral lenses fitted by our eye doctor in Nassau County Long Island

Zen lens scleral lens contacts in long island NY

We are proud to offer Zenlens™ scleral lenses in our Rockville Centre Long Island practice. Scleral lenses in general have made massive inroads into the contact lens market as they offer some very important benefits over traditional contact lens technology. Scleral lenses vault over the eye and sit on the white part, or the sclera of the eye. This design is superior for three reasons.

  1. The vault design means that patients with irregular shaped corneas from Keratoconus, corneal scarring, or post surgery have an option that both corrects vision more effectively and increases comfort.
  2. The vault design is a drastic improvement for patients with dry eyes, as the vault creates a reservoir for tears to naturally maintain lubrication.
  3. Scleral lenses large design minimizes movement which means less irritation from movement in the eye and sharper vision.
