Millions of Americans suffer from blurred or distorted vision as a result of cataracts. At Susskind & Almallah Eye Associates, we offer patients a variety of premium intraocular lenses (IOL) to replace the clouded lens caused by cataracts.
Patients with glaucoma suffer with high pressure in the structure of the eye that can damage the optic nerve and lead to blindness when left untreated. Dr. Almallah is one of the first ophthalmologists in the New Jersey area to use advanced treatment options, such as canaloplasty and the Xen Gel implant to reduce eye pressure in glaucoma patients.
For patients with diabetes, it is important to know that your eyes are commonly affected by the disease. You can experience symptoms such as styes, double vision, and may develop cataracts or diabetic retinopathy. Keeping your ophthalmologist informed about your symptoms and changes in your medication can help us take the right steps to keep your eyes healthy as you manage living with diabetes.
Dry eyes can lead to symptoms such as stinging, burning, or itching, and may cause irritation for contact lens wearers. We can diagnose dry eyes with an examination and help you find relief with the right treatment.
Floaters are small dots or circles that develop in your vision as you age. They are caused when vitreous gel shrinks and pulls away from the retina. They are generally nothing to be concerned about, however sudden increases in the floaters in your vision could be a sign of something more serious. If you are experiencing many new floaters, please schedule an appointment to have your vision checked.
Myopia is commonly known as nearsightedness, the inability to focus on objects at a distance. It is often treated with LASIK surgery, but it can also be corrected with Versyse™ Lens, a contact-like lens implant, for those patients with high degrees of myopia.
Macular degeneration is the breakdown of the macula, the point on the retina on which light rays meet as they are focused on the retina. This breakdown often comes with age and can cause impairment for reading or close-up vision focus. Treatments can include medication and laser surgery.
Patients over 40 commonly experience presbyopia, the hardening of your lens as you age, which makes it more difficult to focus on objects close up. Treatments for presbyopia include bifocals, progressive lenses, reading glasses, and multifocal contacts. For some patients intraocular lens (IOL) replacement is also an option.
As you age, facial wrinkles start to appear with greater frequency. At Susskind & Almallah Eye Associates we want you to see your best and look your best. We offer patients surgical and non-surgical options for rejuvenation of your facial appearance. Eyelid surgery or injectables, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, may be the right option to achieve a more youthful appearance.
