Dry Eye Disease Williamsbridge

Here at Vision Center of New York, one of the most common reasons that patients seek treatment from our Williamsbridge ophthalmologist is because they are experiencing dry eye symptoms. Some symptoms typically associated with dry eye syndrome include: constant eye dryness, itchy eyes, red eyes, burning in the eyes, frequent tearing, and more. There are two main reasons why dry eye syndrome develops. The first is that your eyes simply are not producing a sufficient amount of tears. The second is that the quality of your tears is not striking the correct balance. These two main causes can also be caused by external factors, such as especially dry or windy weather conditions in your surroundings, long-term use of contact lenses, not blinking enough, working with computer screens all day, and more.

If you are experiencing dry eye symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with our Williamsbridge ophthalmologist as soon as possible so that we can work with you to reveal the cause of your symptoms, and from there work to treat it. There are both surgical and non-surgical treatments available for dry eye syndrome. Perhaps the most common treatment for dry eye syndrome is the use of eye drops, whether they are prescription or not. Surgical procedures that change the functioning of your tear ducts can be recommended for more severe and chronic cases of dry eye syndrome. The first step to treatment is to visit us at Vision Center of New York so that we can evaluate your symptoms and find the treatment that will give you the most relief.

Williamsbridge Eye Surgeon

Cataract Surgeon Williamsbridge

The most common form of cataract surgery with our Williamsbridge eye surgeon today involves a process called phacoemulsification. With the use of an operating microscope, a very small incision will be made in the surface of your eye in, or near, your cornea. A thin ultrasound probe will be inserted into your eye and uses ultrasonic vibrations to dissolve (phacoemulsify) your clouded lens. These tiny fragmented pieces are then suctioned out through the same ultrasound probe. Once the cataract is removed, an artificial lens is placed into the thin capsule-shaped bag that the cataract occupied previously. This lens is necessary in order to help your eye focus after surgery.

This groundbreaking procedure is used to break up your cataract with cutting-edge ultrasound technology. According to the National Institutes of Health, most cataracts are related to aging, and by the age of 80, more than half of Americans either have a cataract or have had cataract surgery. This new ultrasound laser technology creates less energy time inside your eye, less inflammation inside the eye, and it limits the amount of complications that can happen. Our Williamsbridge eye surgeon feels the main advantage of the laser technology, over current cataract surgery techniques, is the precision and added safety. Less ultrasound is needed when the cataract is softened by the laser first. In addition, the laser does a very precise job, and our expectation at Vision Center of New York, is that over time, the outcomes of the cataract surgeries will be better sustained.

After cataract surgery, you can expect your vision to begin improving within a few days. Your vision may be blurry at first as your eye heals and adjusts. We will want you to see our Williamsbridge eye surgeon a day or two after your surgery, again the week after, and then after about a month, so we can monitor your healing process. Eyedrops may be prescribed, or other medication, to prevent infection, reduce inflammation and control eye pressure. After a couple of days, most of your discomfort should disappear. Quite often, total healing occurs within eight weeks.
