Here at Vision Center of New York, we are here to help you see your best under any circumstances. Cataracts is a progressive disease that clouds and blurs your vision due to a continuing buildup of protein on the surface of your eye lenses. And while special eyeglasses or contact lenses do an effective job of correcting for the effects of early to mid stage cataracts, for most patients, the need for surgery done by our eye doctor in the Bronx will arrive.

You don’t have to worry, because cataract surgery is safe and typically done on an outpatient basis, taking less than an hour to complete. It is generally only considered when your cataracts have made it difficult or even impossible for you to see at the level you want and need to live your life productively and independently. For many people, this can be years after the initial diagnosis of cataracts. When it does happen, though, there is no reason to hesitate. Our eye doctor in the Bronx has the experience and expertise to make you feel 100% confident in the results. The procedure involves the complete removal of your eye lenses, as there is no way to remove cataracts from the lenses themselves. You will then be free of the visual obstructions that were causing you problems. However, your lenses are responsible for permitting you to focus, and so a substitute must be found. Fortunately, intraocular lens implants (IOLs) can be placed during the same procedure as your natural lenses are removed. And thanks to today’s multifocal IOLs, you will be able to see sharply and clearly at all distances. In many ways, it will feel as if you have brand new eyes.

Depend on our eye doctor in the Bronx for the heights in quality cataracts eye care. With cataract surgery, you will regain your ability to do all the things that you have been unable to, such as driving, engaging in your favorite outdoor activities, using a computer, and much more.

Are you simply tired of having to reach for your glasses the first thing in the morning in order to be able to see clearly? If so, you may have already begun to think about getting LASIK surgery. This type of laser treatment will allow you to be able to see clearly without eyeglasses or contact lenses. If you would like to meet with our Bronx eye surgeon regarding getting LASIK surgery, we hope you will contact us today at our Vision Center of New York.

At our vision practice, our Medical Director is Dr. Gary R. Fishman. We are very happy to be able to provide LASIK surgery for all of our qualified patients. In order for our patient to have LASIK surgery, they must first be pre-qualified for this procedure. This is because LASIK surgery may not be successful for every patient, or, it may even make certain patients’ vision worse. However, once a patient goes through the pre-qualification process, our Bronx eye surgeon will be able to safely perform the LASIK eye surgery.

LASIK surgery will reduce the patient’s need to wear glasses or contact lenses; in fact, many patients do not need to wear corrective lenses at all after the treatment is completed. LASIK surgery is approved by the FDA, and is a safe and extremely effective treatment for nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. During LASIK, a laser will be used to actually change the shape of the cornea. The cornea is the clear covering over the front of the eye. A tiny flap will be cut in the cornea with a laser, through which the surgery is performed. During your LASIK pre-evaluation, the thickness of your cornea will be measured to make sure it is thick enough to withstand this surgery. Once the flap in the cornea is cut, pulses from a laser will reshape the cornea so that the exact needed refraction will occur. If you would like to meet with our Bronx eye surgeon regarding this exciting laser surgery, contact our office today. Most patients do qualify for this surgery, and if they do not, they often qualify at a later time. To qualify, it is important that you are over 18 years of age and that you have not had any vision prescription changes over the past two years.
