Many people have vision needs. Conditions that affect eyesight like nearsightedness and farsightedness are quite common and many people need to wear prescription lenses in order to see clearly every day. Here at Brook Plaza Ophthalmology we can provide you with everything you need. Our Sheepshead Bay eye store has a wealth of frames to choose from, whether you are on a budget or are in the market for designer eyewear. To update your prescription and find the perfect pair of glasses, just visit our optical store.

People of all ages should have their vision tested regularly. Issues with vision can occur gradually, and oftentimes the change is so minute and over such a long period of time that people don’t notice their prescription needs have changed until it is drastic. Often, even making the slightest adjustment to your prescription lenses can make a huge difference. Annual exams keep track of changes like these and offer you the opportunity to update your lenses and get new frames so you can see more clearly. Some side effects you may end up suffering from if your prescription is outdated include blurry vision, headaches, and eyestrain, which can make you feel uncomfortable, dizzy, and leave you squinting constantly. Here at Brook Plaza Ophthalmology we can provide you with a full vision exam and screening. From there, we can show you what designer frames and affordable options we have here in stock at our Sheepshead Bay eye store. One of our opticians can show you all of our options for lenses, coatings, frames, contact lenses and much more.

Diabetes and your eyes in Sheepshead Bay

Your eyes are prone to various common eye diseases, some of which are a concern regardless of your general health status, such as glaucoma and cataracts. However, if you have diabetes (type one or two), it can have an effect on your eyes, in the form of diabetic retinopathy. Here at Brook Plaza Ophthalmology, our eye specialist in Sheepshead Bay priority is to protect you from the worst consequences of this disease, through early detection and management.

Your blood sugar levels can fluctuate, sometimes wildly, due to diabetes. If you have had it for a long time, your chance of developing diabetic retinopathy will be higher, since the odds go up with each year you are diabetic. However, that does not mean you are sure to suffer from diabetic retinopathy. What is certain, however, is that this eye disease forms and progresses through its early stages without providing you any noticeable warning signs. As a result, you can wind up experiencing loss of vision, or damage to your ocular blood vessels. Yes, that damage can possibly be repaired with surgery, but obviously it would be far better to avoid that chance entirely. That is why our eye specialist in Sheepshead Bay recommends that you come in at least once per year for a comprehensive eye exam. In addition to the other benefits of doing so, such as determining if you need new or updated prescription lenses to correct your vision, and screening you for glaucoma and cataracts, our eye specialist in Sheepshead Bay will also test you for the effects of diabetes on your eyes. Early detection can prevent complications, but you should be aware of symptoms such as floaters (spots in your field of vision), blurry vision, problems with perception of colors, and any vision loss at all.
