Physical Health of the Eyes

Laser Vision Specialists serving Toms River, Brick, Barnegat & Manalapan Township, New Jersey

At Susskind & Almallah Eye Associates, the physical health of your eyes is extremely important to us. Vision is the manner in which most of us make our first sensory perceptions of the things around us- our sight can extend far beyond our reach of touch, sense of smell, and range of hearing. Because of that, it is important to maintain the physical health of your eyes and make routine visits to have your eyes examined.
Eye Conditions
Eyes can exhibit a wide variety of symptoms that can indicate a possible problem with their physical health. Some symptoms, such as itchiness, may just be an indicator of allergies, however other symptoms should be treated as warning signs and you should consult with an eye physician right away. Common indicators of poor physical health of your eyes are:

  • Swelling
  • Burning
  • Trauma
  • Pain
  • Blurred Vision
  • Spots/Halos

If you do experience any of these symptoms come in and talk with us as soon as possible. Make sure you make a note of how long the symptoms have been persisting and if you have any ideas of what may be causing them. Once in our office we'll check for a variety of conditions including:

Many of these conditions are treatable/curable if they are caught early on. That is why the most important thing you can do to prevent these conditions is to get your eyes routinely checked, at least once a year. If you do exhibit any symptoms or have had any trauma in between check-ups, it is always better to be safe than sorry and come in and have us check your eyes out.
