If you wake up with your eyes pink and irritated, you may have conjunctivitis. In this case, it is very important to make an appointment to visit our Cliffside Park Eye Associates practice. Here, our Cliffside Park eye doctor, Dr. Van Vinciguerra, can examine your eyes and let you know the reason for your red eye problem, and provide you with appropriate treatment.

Pinkeye is also referred to his conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis is when there is an inflammation or infection of the clear membrane that lines your eye and eyelid. When the small blood vessels in these areas become inflamed, they are much more visible and can cause the white areas of your eyes to appear red or pink. Conjunctivitis can be caused by either a bacterial or viral infection. It can also be caused by an allergy that is affecting one or both eyes. Pink eye can be a very irritating situation and there are treatments that our Cliffside Park eye doctor can provide that will help to ease the discomfort. Conjunctivitis can also be very contagious and early diagnosis and treatment can help keep the eye disease from spreading to someone else. Signs of conjunctivitis can include: redness; itchiness; a discharge that forms during the night that can keep your eyes from opening in the morning; or excessive tearing. You should contact our eye doctor at the earliest signs of conjunctivitis. He can help by making a definitive diagnosis, by providing treatment, and by ruling out any other serious vision problems which can actually cause similar symptoms. If you wear contact lenses, you will not want to wear them for as long as you have the symptoms. It could be that the eye infection is related to your contact lens use, or bacteria from the eye infection can actually be transferred to your contact lenses. You will want to have immediate attention from our eye doctor if you experience any eye pain, eye sensitivity, or blurred vision.

Glaucoma eye care in Edgewater

Edgewater glaucoma

Edgewater glaucoma

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.
