Eye doctors do more than test your vision. They also treat a variety of conditions that impact your vision and the structure of the eye. Lawrence S. Forgacs, O.D. provides treatment for eye conditions of all types. Our optometrist in Midtown Manhattan can help you get the treatment you need for your eye conditions.
Glaucoma is one of the most common eye diseases, and unfortunately, it can have permanent side effects. Our eye doctor can diagnose glaucoma and help you consider treatment plans, including eye drops or surgery.
Dry Eye Syndrome
Dry eye syndrome is uncomfortable and can prevent you from wearing contact lenses. If you have dry eyes, you may struggle to lubricate your eyes even with drops. Our optometrist can help you determine the cause of your condition and take steps to prevent the symptoms from worsening.
Keratoconus is an eye disease that affects the cornea. This condition often causes the cornea to thin and bulge. Unfortunately, this condition may cause blurry vision, sensitivity to light, and difficulty seeing at all. Treatment usually involves glasses, specialty contact lenses, and sometimes a cornea transplant.
If your cornea was damaged, either by disease or injury, you may have a graft. You will need additional care after this treatment. We can manage your recovery process and provide guidance on maintaining good eye health and vision.
Hard-to-Fit Contact Lenses
Standard contact lenses are not the best fit for everybody. You may find that your eyes do not take easily to contact lenses, or perhaps a previous surgery you had makes contact lenses more difficult to wear. Whether you have dry eyes or simply experience discomfort when wearing lenses, you might benefit from using hard-to-fit contact lenses.
Cataracts, a condition that causes the clouding of the lens, are often diagnosed early with regular vision care. We can diagnose cataracts early on before symptoms set in.
Emergency Eye Care
If you experience physical trauma or a foreign body in your eye, we’re here for emergency eye care. Our optometrist will work with you to diagnose your condition and ensure you are provided the necessary treatment.
