Optometry

Optometry is a field of healthcare concerned with diseases, injuries and disorders of the eye.

Optometrists examine eyes for vision and health issues and can prescribe glasses to correct blurred sight. At AdvantageCare Physicians, our Optometrists can perform additional services, including:

  • Diagnose conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, conjunctivitis, and macular degeneration
  • Identify conditions affecting the eye such as diabetes or high blood pressure
  • Pre- and post-operative surgical care
  • Vision therapy
  • Low vision rehabilitation

Patients should see an Optometrist if their vision is deteriorating, have chronic dry eyes, itchiness, or redness, or feel pressure in their eye sockets. Our Optometrist can treat most eye related issues, such as:

  • Dry eye
  • Eye infection
  • Nearsightedness and farsightedness
  • Astigmatism

If needed, Optometrists work with our Ophthalmologists to manage serious eye conditions. Schedule an appointment online or call 646-680-4227.
