We offer exceptional service and quality products – whether you simply wish to change the color of your eyes, prefer not to wear glasses or cannot achieve your best vision even with glasses. We provide a wide range of lenses – including those for astigmatism, presbyopia (bifocal contacts) as well as those for irregular corneas. If necessary, we teach you how to insert and remove your lenses and provide a free trial pair with each fitting at no additional cost which you can wear for up to a month. This way you can be sure that our recommendations meet your needs and expectations perfectly. And we do it all affordably and conveniently.
LASIK surgery has become an increasingly popular and safe option to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses and contacts due to refractive error (farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism). Our staff works closely with some of the most experienced surgeons in CT and provides everything including determining your eligibility, preoperative care, postoperative care, scheduling and communication with your surgeon – all from the convenience of our New Haven location.
Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the U.S. and the world. It is often called the “sneak thief of sight” because people who suffer from it would have no idea that they have it – it causes no pain, redness or blurred vision. Unfortunately we sometimes see a patient who is long overdue for their annual eye exam who has suffered considerable damage from this insidious disease. Along with diabetic eye disease and dry eye it is one of the most commonly encountered eye diseases in our practice. Diagnosing and managing glaucoma can be very challenging. Our practice has the latest technologies to aid in our evaluation, and our doctors have managed numerous patients successfully over the years. There are a number of treatment options including drops, LASER and surgery. When glaucoma cannot be managed medically we work closely with excellent surgeons who can provide full scope care.
Unfortunately, diabetes has become an epidemic in the U.S and diabetic retinopathy – when diabetes affects the back of the eye responsible for vision – is one of the leading causes of blindness in our country. Fortunately, much can be done to prevent these changes and part of avoiding serious vision loss is early detection and, if necessary, treatment. Our staff of doctors is fully trained and experienced in detecting the absolute earliest ocular changes from diabetes and we have the latest technological tools at our disposal. We work closely with retinal specialists who treat diabetic retinopathy and are able to have our patients in need seen quickly to address any necessary treatment.
Cataract is one of the most common visually significant disorders in the US and around the world. Our doctors diagnose cataract in over a thousand patients a year. Cataract surgery is one of the most successful and life changing eye surgeries there is - and we love being part of your team. We work closely with the best surgeons in New Haven to make your experience smooth and successful – and all your post-operative care is conveniently done in our office.
Dry eye is an extremely prevalent disorder which can cause irritation, blurred vision, tearing and a “gritty” feeling. It is also a significant cause for contact lens failure, affects women more than men and is associated with numerous medications and general health conditions. It is often overlooked as the cause of discomfort and blurred vision. Fortunately there are a variety of treatments including drops and special plugs which are placed within the eyelid to maintain more tears for the eye. In addition to the examination of your eyes we have a special test that can help diagnose and specify the specific cause of dry eye and target the treatment. Our doctors have diagnosed and treated numerous cases of dry eye and are very comfortable and confident in its management.
