Eye examinations are vital to your overall health, not just the health of your vision. A thorough eye examination at Optical Visit can determine whether you have any developing signs of underlying eye or health conditions and can help prevent the worsening of any such illnesses. Our New Rochelle eye doctor knows the importance of routine tests and screenings. These can shed light on conditions you may not know you even had, such as dry eye syndrome.

Dry eye syndrome is actually a fairly common eye ailment. It is a disturbance or disorder of the tear film. It occurs when tears are not properly produced by your tear ducts, thus failing to properly lubricate the surface of the eye. This can cause inflammation and can even make you more prone to developing ulcers or corneal abrasions which can get infected and even affect your overall vision. Permanent loss of vision due to dry eye is uncommon, but dry eye syndrome can lead to other conditions that affect the eye and its vision, as mentioned previously. This can affect the ocular surface of the eye and result in various symptoms and additional, extraneous conditions if left undiagnosed or untreated. In order to prevent any of these occurrences, as well as the general discomfort that comes with dry eye, it is important to have a yearly exam with our New Rochelle eye doctor. A thorough eye exam with Dr. Ellen Cotler, OD here at Optical Visit can help determine whether you have dry eye syndrome or any other underlying eye condition.

You should also consider making an appointment with Dr. Cotler here at Optical Visit if you develop any sudden signs or symptoms of dry eye. These can include light sensitivity, foreign body sensation, blurred vision, redness or pain in the eye, as well as the feeling of something scratchy or gritty underneath the eyelid and on the surface of the eyeball. Another symptom may be excessive tearing which results from massive amounts of irritation. A visit with our New Rochelle eye doctor can help provide you with the comprehensive eye care and advice you need, as well as alleviate you of any pain or discomfort you may be experiencing.

Are you considering using contact lenses for your daily vision correction? Contact lenses are an excellent option for many patients for several reasons. Contact lenses do not obstruct your vision in any way, they are easy to maintain, they are easily replaced, they do not cover up or hide your face, and there are a variety of types and brands for you to choose from. Our New Rochelle optometrist helps patients with their contact lenses here at Optical Visit all the time, and would love to do the same for you.

The first step to getting contact lenses is to visit our New Rochelle optometrist for a comprehensive eye exam and contact lens fitting. During the exam portion of your visit, we will carefully administer a series of tests in order to evaluate your eye health and to determine an accurate optical prescription for your lenses. Then, prior to the contact lens fitting, our New Rochelle optometrist will ask you some questions to get a better idea of which lenses are best suited for you. It is important to consider your lifestyle, hygienic habits, and other similar aspects about yourself when coming to a decision about the type of contact lens you would like to use. For example: do you think you may forget to store and clean your lenses each night? If so, you may want to consider using disposable lenses that you change each day. Do you think you may want to change your eye color? Then you can discuss color-changing lenses with our New Rochelle optometrist.

Medical considerations also need to be made when choosing contact lenses, such as if soft contact lenses or gas permeable lenses are more ideal for your needs, and the experts at Optical Visit can help you with that. When it comes down to the actual contact lens fitting, our New Rochelle optometrist will need to take several measurements, including your corneal curvature and your pupil and iris size, in order to provide you with lenses that are comfortably and accurately fitted to your eyes. We may suggest using trial lenses before ordering a full package of lenses to make sure that you are satisfied with your new lenses throughout your daily life.
