Nearsighted, Farsightedness & Astigmatism

If you are experiencing farsightedness, you might have noticed issues while you’re reading a book or looking at your computer screen. It’s possible that you have experienced blurred vision or struggled to see the information. Alternatively, nearsightedness could mean that you have experienced difficulty reading the plates on cars in front of you while driving or seeing things on the road ahead. If you have experienced issues like this we can provide eye exams to check for any conditions that might be causing you problems here. Our eye exams in Ridgewood, Queens, NY will provide you with the results you need without delay. 

If you are experiencing blurred vision, you could also be suffering from astigmatism. Here, light is scattered unevenly across the retina, the tissue in the back of the eye. This can cause blurred vision at both distance and near. Our eye doctors in Ridgewood, NY will diagnose this issue and provide the right solution. 

 

Presbyopia

It’s important to note that you can suffer from vision changes more as you age. Presbyopia is a condition associated with age that can make it difficult to focus on things that are close to you. This includes reading small print, such as a newspaper. It can also cause eye strain and blurry vision when using your computer, cell phone, and other digital devices such as tablets. Attempting to read with this condition can lead to you developing headaches. We can provide the right corrective eyeglasses or contact lenses to help you with this issue. 

 

Eye Discomfort And Injuries

There are countless physical issues that you might need to be evaluated for with our Ridgewood, NY eye doctor. For instance, you could be suffering from dry eyes. This may occur due to excessive computer use, decreased tear production, or with age. Eye drops can help with this condition.Additionally, you could be suffering from itchy eyes which can be a sign of eye allergies. Medications may also help resolve this issue.

 

If you've suffered an eye injury, such as a scratched cornea or a foreign material has become lodged in your eye - our eye doctor may provide you with the proper care and treatment as well. You could also be experiencing eyelid inflammation. It can be treated with a range of different medicines or by removing the particle. Again, these are issues we can solve when you use the services of a skilled eye doctor in Ridgewood, NY. 

 

Treating Eye Diseases And Conditions

As professional eye doctors in Ridgewood, Queens, NY, we can provide treatment to residents in Maspeth and Woodside who are suffering from eye diseases and conditions. For instance, you could have a cataract. A cataract is an age-related change to the internal lens of your eye. As we age, the lens becomes cloudy and can impair vision. Your vision may appear dimmer and duller in appearance, and you may experience blurry vision at all distances even with your glasses. Surgery may be necessary in such cases.

 

You could also be suffering from Macular Degeneration. Macular degeneration is a condition that affects the central portion of your vision. Early changes in the retina, the tissue in the back of the eye, can be detected with our specialized equipment and your eye doctor will discuss a plan of action if this is detected.

 

Certain eye conditions may occur for people with diabetes or high blood pressure. Retinopathy is a condition where bleeding from the small blood vessels occur in the back of the eye and can lead to vision loss. These changes can be detected by your eye doctor during a comprehensive eye examination.

 

There are other conditions that must be caught early to avoid damage to your eyesight as well. For instance, you could be suffering from glaucoma. Glaucoma is a condition in which high eye pressure leads to damage to the optic nerve. The damage to the optic nerve may lead to visual field loss, or peripheral vision loss. Early detection and treatment is necessary to protect the vision of those with glaucoma.
