Edgewater dry eye treatment
When it comes to dry eyes, the good news is that the condition does not threaten your health in the long term, nor is it responsible for any permanent changes to your vision. The bad news is that it results in discomfort and temporary obstacles to your vision. At Cliffside Park Eye Associates, Edgewater dry eye treatment is one of the many valuable services we offer to our patients just like you.
Insufficient lubrication, either due to not enough tears or poor quality of tears, is the reason you develop dry eyes. Exposure to wind and smoke can make the situation worse. When you experience indications such as sensitivity to light, redness in your eyes, blurred vision, a burning or stinging feeling in your eyes, tired eyes, or an uncomfortable feeling when you wear your contacts, you could probably benefit from our Edgewater dry eye treatment. First must come an accurate diagnosis, which means an eye exam and possibly tests to determine the volume and quality of your tears. Sometimes, the answer when it comes to addressing the concern is as simple as the application of artificial tears, which are a type of eye drops designed to add back the necessary moisture to your eyes. You can get them over-the-counter, or for a stronger version, we can offer a prescription. In addition to our Edgewater dry eye treatment, you should try to avoid air-conditioned rooms as well as smoke (your own and that of others). Wear eyeglasses or sunglasses when you’re out on windy days. You may also want to get a humidifier for your home to add vital moisture to dry indoor air. If the above solutions do not achieve the desired outcome, surgery could be an option.

Edgewater eye specialist
Eye health often goes overlooked, but it should be included when you plan your annual exams and checkups. Everyone should see their local eye doctor once a year for a checkup, which can be helpful for a number of reasons. Not only are vision problems and eye diseases always a possibility, but other conditions like allergies, injuries and infections are, too. Here at Cliffside Park Eye Associates, our Edgewater eye specialist can help provide you with the comprehensive eye care you need to identify and treat an issue like an eye infection.
Eye infections can be quite uncomfortable, as well as unsightly. There are two main types of eye infections: keratitis and conjunctivitis. Keratitis is an infection and inflammation of the clear tissue over the eye, otherwise known as the cornea. The cornea is a bit like the lens of a camera, or operates as one for the eye. This sort of infection can occur if you suffer from an ulcer, a corneal scratch, or some other sort of eye injury which can then get infected a bit like a open wound. With this condition, you are likely to experience eye redness, pain, and blurred or decreased vision. To avoid loss of eyesight, you should have this condition seen right away, and our Edgewater eye specialist here at Cliffside Park Eye Associates can do just that. Additionally, we can also identify and treat other infections like conjunctivitis as well. Conjunctivitis is more commonly known as pinkeye, and often shows as such when it develops. The eye can redden or appear pink as the name suggests, it can swell, become itchy and produce discharge. Allergic conjunctivitis can be treated with antihistamines and bacterial conjunctivitis can be treated with antibiotic eye drops.
If you feel that you may have an eye infection, call or visit us here at Cliffside Park Eye Associates as soon as you can to set up an appointment with our Edgewater eye specialist and get the care you need.

Edgewater eye exam
A yearly eye exam is highly recommended for all adults. Not only will you have your vision tested to determine if you need new or updated corrective lenses, but you will also be screened for common eye diseases; ones which don’t have any obvious symptoms until they reach an advanced stage. In addition, though, our Edgewater eye exam can detect early signs of diseases not related to your eyes. At Cliffside Park Eye Associates, your ocular health is our top priority, and we can also promote your overall health.
How is your vision right now? Unless you’re sure that it’s excellent, you might be able to benefit from eyeglasses or contact lenses. Certainly, sub par vision should be corrected, but even if your vision is okay, with the results of our Edgewater eye exam, your vision can be improved to be much better than that. You already wear corrective lenses? Maybe you could use an adjustment to the prescription to account for changes to your vision since you got them. Glaucoma and cataracts are two of the eye diseases that you should be tested for once per year. They can affect you regardless of your age or other circumstances. If diabetic retinopathy or macular degeneration are applicable to your situation, you will also be tested for them. Remember, early detection is closely associated with the best outcomes, and with common eye diseases, waiting until you experience symptoms means waiting until there has already been damage to your eyes or loss of vision. Our Edgewater eye exam can also indicate the first signs of diabetes and high cholesterol, speaking of early detection. Discovering that information in a timely manner will allow you to seek out treatment and management options before you suffer any harm.
When you consider all of the good reasons, this is the ideal time to call our office and book an appointment to come in for an eye examination.
If you have been diagnosed with glaucoma, or are concerned that you may develop the eye disease, you should definitely contact our vision practice, Cliffside Park Eye Associates, so that you can be seen by our optometrist for glaucoma screening and eye care. Our two expert doctors who can screen you for Edgewater glaucoma, and if necessary manager the condition are, Dr. Van Vinciguerra and Dr. Wae Shin.
During our comprehensive eye exams, our eye doctor can test your eyes to see if you are developing Edgewater glaucoma. As part of our exam, our doctor will use a special optometric instrument which will determine what your intraocular pressure is. If this pressure is high, it may be an indicator that you have glaucoma, and that you will need additional tests for definitive diagnosis. If you do indeed have Edgewater glaucoma, and it is diagnosed in the early stages, our optometrist will be able to provide you with complete glaucoma eye care. You will only need to use medicated eye drops daily in order to keep your eye pressure low. This should be enough to keep the glaucoma at bay, and you will not need to lose any vision at all to this serious eye disease. Instead, you will only need to continue taking the eye drops on a daily basis and to visit our optometrist on a periodic basis for glaucoma management. If at any point it is determined that the glaucoma is advancing, our optometrist will be able to refer you to an ophthalmologist in the area who will be able to provide you with advanced glaucoma care. This can include laser surgery which can be extremely successful in keeping the glaucoma from proceeding. The most important thing with glaucoma is that you are diagnosed as soon as possible in order to keep the disease from affecting your optic nerve.
