Brooklyn Eye Surgery

The lenses inside your eyes are normally clear. However, sometimes areas of the lenses in your eyes can become cloudy. These cloudy areas of the lenses inside your eyes are called cataracts. Cataracts can develop in one eye or in both and as they develop, you might not even notice them. However, in time, cataracts can and will affect your vision. The clouded vision caused by cataracts can make it very difficult to do everyday activities such as reading and driving. Once the condition begins to interfere with your ability to perform these tasks, surgery might be necessary. It is very important that you go to an experienced ophthalmologist if you suspect that you have cataracts.

Low Vision Brooklyn

Low Vision Brooklyn

As your eyes naturally age, they become susceptible to sight-threatening eye diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. As a result of these eye conditions, people may suffer loss of their peripheral vision or central vision, which may result in them experiencing low vision. Low vision is an impairment to vision that cannot be adequately corrected with medical, surgical, therapy, conventional eyewear or contact lenses. Low vision significantly impairs the functioning and independence of the patient, but does not mean total loss of vision or complete blindness. In fact, our Brooklyn low vision doctor find that many people with low vision still have some potentially useful vision. However, these visual difficulties and visual impairments reduce their corrected vision to a level worse than 20/60, which makes everyday activities extremely difficult.

The goal of the low vision services and devices from Brook Plaza Ophthalmolgy is to enable low vision patients to improve their ability to use their remaining vision in order to maintain independence and a general standard of living. Some devices that may help low vision patients maintain their current lifestyle include adjustable light, magnifying devices, closed-circuit television, electronic reading machines, large-print publications, computer systems with voice-recognition, and telescopes.

Vision loss and low vision has several warning signs. Are you having difficulty recognizing faces and fine details? Do lights seem dimmer than normal? Are you finding it hard to tell the difference between certain colors? If you’re experiencing some of the above changes in your vision, it is recommended that you visit Brook Plaza Ophthalmology. Receiving regular eye exams with a licensed Brooklyn ophthalmologist is to detect changes in your vision before they start interfering with your life.
