Madeline L. Romeu, OD, FAAO, of Dr. Romeu Eye Associates in West New York, NJ, finds great satisfaction in her specialty of contact lenses. She is able to address difficult cases, such as keratoconus, Ortho K, and distorted corneas, and make positive changes in the lives of patients whose vision has been compromised. Having her son as an associate in the practice frees her up from everyday exams to concentrate on this specialty.

EQUIP FOR DIAGNOSIS. A topographer and an OCT with an anterior segment portion are required.
CHARGE APPROPRIATELY. You spend more time with challenging cases; charge more for it.
