Williamsbridge Ophthalmologist

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.

Intraocular Lens Implants 10469

If cataracts have become a hinderance to your daily routine and your ability to live a normal, independent, and productive life, it might be a good time to consider ReStor IOLs from Vision Center of New York. These intraocular lens implants from ReStor are a safe and highly effective solution for restoring not only your distance vision, but unlike some other IOLs, they also improve your near and intermediate vision, making them truly multifocal. Our Bay Plaza ophthalmologist is pleased to offer this fantastic option that will allow you to do all of the things you have been missing out on because of cataracts.

An intraocular lens is made of plastic or glass and is permanently implanted into your eye during cataract surgery by our Bay Plaza ophthalmologist. An IOL replaces your natural eye lens, which is removed during the course of surgery. Your ReStor IOL acts to give you back your ability to focus, which is not possible naturally once your lens has been taken out. It does this while reducing or even eliminating your need for eyeglasses or contact lenses.

If you’re wondering if IOLs are new, well yes and no. They have been around for decades, but with ReStor IOLs, you now can achieve the highest level possible of restored vision. All of the little things that you took for granted before your cataracts can once again bring joy to your life, reading, driving, using a computer, golfing, you name it. Our Bay Plaza ophthalmologist makes it a priority to provide you with the most up to date in technological advances to help you see at your absolute best. A clinical study concluded that about 80% of patients were able to see without any need for their glasses six months after receiving ReStor IOLs. An impressive 93% of patients said they would have ReStor intraocular lens implants done again.

Cataracts, caused by a protein buildup in your eyes, causes clouded vision that tends to worsen with time. Over half of cataract diagnoses are in people aged 65 and older. Symptoms such as difficulty driving at night, blurred or foggy vision, problems in perceiving colors, and double vision can indicate that your cataracts are in need of treatment. Call us and schedule an exam with our Bay Plaza ophthalmologist. You need not be subject to the limitations that cataracts can place on your life.
