Ensuring crisp and clear vision is only one part of first-rate eye care. In addition to testing visual acuity, our eye doctor focuses on the comprehensive and long-term health of your eyes and vision. Using the latest in optometric technology such as digital imaging, in our Manhattan office, we will inspect your eyes thoroughly with a comprehensive eye and vision assessment. Our optometric experts stay up to date with the rapid progress of medicine and technology, so you benefit from precise diagnoses and optimal treatments. Many common eye diseases, such as macular degeneration, cataracts and glaucoma, do not present symptoms until a late stage. For early detection and effective medical treatment of eye disease, visit our highly qualified and skilled eye doctor regularly for a comprehensive eye exam.
At our optical we carry a large collection of designer frames, eyeglasses & contact lenses for all your vision needs.

Q: How do I know if I have Dry Eye?
A: Dry eye can cause quite a few symptoms, anything from the eyes actually feeling dry to the eyes watering often, or having a burning, itchy, or irritated feeling. One of the most common symptoms is the eyes feeling gritty or like something is in your eye. Most people will often experience blurred vision since the tears, which comprise the outermost surface of the eye, are unstable.

Q: What are some of the symptoms of Dry Eye?
A: There are numerous symptoms of dry eye disease, but the most common ones include excess tearing, lack of tearing, burning, redness, foreign body sensation, intermittently blurred vision, and an inability to tolerate contact lenses. If you have any of the above symptoms, and want a professional diagnosis, please make an appointment here.

Q: What are some of the warning signs of Dry Eye? How is it best detected?
A: Warning signs can accumulate quite gradually over many years. Not uncommonly among contact lens wearers, they may incorrectly assume the lenses are old and need to be replaced. Other times the eyes water a bit more, or burn, or itch. Many, many cases are sub-clinical – they can only be diagnosed with the use of microscopic detection and special equipment!
We look at tear quality, tear meniscus, and gland structure. Research has pointed towards the testing of tear osmolarity as a reliable indicator of
the disease in terms of pre-treatment and post-treatment situations.
