Treatment for Dry Eyes GreenwichGENERAL EYE CARE AND CORRECTIVE SURGICAL PROCEDURES:

Adult and Pediatric Eye Exams
Your eyes are your windows to the world and require regular medical attention. Yet, many people visit the ophthalmologist only when they think something is wrong. If you are one of them, you may be putting your eye health at risk. Nearly 35% of adults live with visual impairment without realizing it, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.

That’s why we recommend an annual eye examination by a top eye doctor for adults and children. Not only can we correct any current eyesight problems, we also look for signs of conditions that may threaten your vision in the future.

As part of our exam, we will evaluate a patient’s:

  • Visual acuity (ability to see detail)
  • Need for eyeglasses or contact lenses (refraction)
  • Coordination of eye muscles
  • Pupil response to light
  • Side (peripheral) vision
  • Glaucoma risk
  • Eyelid health and function
  • The interior and back of the eye
  • Evaluate the lens for cataracts
  • Examine the retina for age-related macular degeneration

Diabetic Eye Doctor RyeEyeglass and Contact Lens Exams
Each pair of eyes is unique. That’s why we expertly contour corrective lenses to suit your eyes alone. For eyeglass wearers, we have an extensive selection of designer and classic eyeglass frames to suit your face and lifestyle. We will fit the frames and position your lenses correctly and comfortably in front of your eyes. If you wear progressive or bifocal lenses, we will align the lenses with your natural line of sight while reading, working at a computer, or driving.

If you prefer to wear contact lenses, we will help you choose the most comfortable lens for your eye. We offer soft spherical, soft toric lenses for astigmatism, one-day disposable, colors for light and dark eyes, monovision correction, gas permeable, bifocal, multifocal, progressive and specialty lenses.

Diabetic Retinopathy Evaluation and Treatment
In the United States, diabetes is the most common cause of blindness in people younger than 65 years of age. Because people who have diabetic retinopathy often don’t notice changes in their vision in the disease’s early stages, annual eye exams are an essential part of diabetes care. If you have diabetes and notice any change in your eyesight, schedule an appointment with a diabetic eye doctor immediately. We will help prevent further deterioration and determine how to treat your symptoms.

Treatment for Dry Eyes NYGlaucoma Evaluation and Glaucoma Treatment
Glaucoma, a disease of the optic nerve, is a leading cause of blindness in the United States. An estimated 2.3 million Americans aged 40 and over have glaucoma, which occurs when fluid pressure builds up in the eye and damages optic nerve fibers. Glaucoma develops slowly and without early symptoms. Only regular eye examinations can detect it in time to treat it and prevent loss of sight.

Our comprehensive glaucoma screening includes:

  • The latest technology and computer-guided imaging to monitor the optic nerve and diagnose the progression of glaucoma
  • Measurement of intraocular eye pressure (IOP). Elevated IOP is considered a major risk factor for the development of glaucoma
  • Evaluation of a patient’s visual field

If we find that you are at risk or have already developed glaucoma, we will work with you to find the right therapy to decrease intraocular pressure and prevent further damage to the optic nerve. These may include eye drops, medication, laser glaucoma treatment to open the drainage angle and reduce intraocular pressure, or surgery to create a new passage for fluid drainage. Surgery is usually reserved for cases that cannot be controlled by medication or after appropriate laser treatment.

Macular Degeneration Treatment
Macular degeneration is damage or breakdown of the macula – the small area at the back of the eye that allows us to see fine details clearly. When the macula doesn’t function correctly, we experience blurriness or darkness in the center of our field of vision. Macular degeneration affects both distance and close vision, and can make some activities like threading a needle or reading difficult or impossible.

More than 2 million Americans age 50 or older have advanced macular degeneration, which is frequently associated with diabetes. When detected early on, treatment is available and may include laser eye surgery, angiogenesis inhibitors, laser photocoagulation, implantable miniature telescope, and vitamin and mineral therapy.

At Rye Eye, we offer sound advice to help you monitor your macular degeneration. We will give you the tools to help you monitor any early changes in your macular degeneration and offer advice on nutritional and lifestyle changes to help.

Diabetic Eye Doctor Stamford CTCataract Detection and Laser Cataract Surgery
Over the past twenty years, we’ve performed over 5,000 cataract surgeries. Nearly 22 million Americans develop cataracts — the clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye. The clouding prevents rays of light from passing through the lens to reach the retina to produce a sharp image. The result is blurred vision.

Cataracts do not need to be removed until vision loss interferes with daily activities. Rye Eye will help you decide if or when to consider cataract surgery. If surgery is necessary, our experienced ocular surgeons will perform the procedure.

Laser Eye Surgery & LASIK Surgery
Rye Eye has been helping patients reduce their need for glasses or contact lenses through laser eye surgery. The LASIK surgery procedure (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis), one of the most common techniques, reshapes the cornea to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. We offer both Blade-Free LASIK and Custom LASIK.

After surgery, most patients report significant improvement by the next morning.

Treatment for Dry Eyes and Constantly Tearing Eyes
Some people do not produce enough tears to keep their eyes comfortable. This is known as dry eye. Many people are not aware that they have dry eye, which can cause eye irritation, excess tearing, and eye mucus. We can detect if you have this condition and discuss different ways to treat it.
