Are you looking for an expert eye doctor who can provide your child with comprehensive pediatric eye exams? If so, you will want to come to Throggs Neck Optical, where our Pelham Bay pediatric optometrist, Dr. William Guerrero or Dr. Martin Sabesan, can provide your child with expert optometry care.
There are many common pediatric vision problems which your child may experience. Unfortunately, the vision screening children receive at school will only screen for some refractive errors. This is why you will want your child to see our Pelham Bay pediatric optometrist for an eye exam. Amblyopia, also known as “lazy eye” is a common pediatric eye problem that affects about 4 million people in the United States. It occurs when one eye is used less than the other eye, and the brain begins to ignore all vision signals from the weaker eye. It used to be believed that this condition cannot be corrected unless it was detected and treated before age 6. However, today many eye doctors no longer believe this is the case, and feel that even adults can improve their eyesight using vision therapy. Treatment for amblyopia will depend on the extent of the condition, the patient’s age, and other factors. Sometimes a child’s eye may be patched for several hours a day in order to encourage the brain to once again pay attention to visual signals sent by the weaker eye. Strabismus is another common childhood vision problem. When a child has strabismus, both eyes do not necessarily focus in the same direction at the same time. This condition can be corrected with vision therapy, or sometimes with prescription eyeglasses. Congenital cataracts are a serious vision problem which can also be detected during a pediatric eye exam. Should these be discovered, the child will be referred to a pediatric ophthalmologist for care. Nearsightedness is also a common refractive error that children experience that can be easily corrected with eyeglasses or other treatment.
Everyone wants to see better, and it’s simple enough to get the ideal pair of prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses here at Throggs Neck Optical. But there’s more to what we offer, and that includes our eye health exams. If your ocular well-being is not given its due attention, you cannot enjoy improved vision regardless of your corrective eyewear. That’s why our eye doctor in the Bronx recommends that you come in annually for a visit.
There are a variety of potential threats to your eye health, including infections like conjunctivitis (pink eye). But that’s the type of concern for which you will have obvious symptoms. And with prompt care, there is no reason to think that you will suffer any long term impact. However, there are four common eye diseases that can lead to eye damage, vision loss, and even blindness, all of which could be irreversible. Worse still, these four conditions do not have any noticeable indications until they reach an advanced stage. If that sounds alarming, you’re not incorrect. Fortunately, our eye doctor in the Bronx can detect the presence of glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy using some basic tests during our eye health exams. Early diagnosis means timely treatment and management. There are no cures, but it’s entirely possible to slow the progress of vision loss or to stop the process entirely with the right approach from our eye doctor in the Bronx. And difficulties like leaking retinal blood vessels or optic nerve damage can be prevented entirely. The effects of cataracts on your vision are usually reversed with a pair of special eyeglasses or contact lenses. For latter stage eye disease and/or eye harm, you may need more specialized treatment, up to and including surgery.
We urge you to reach out to our office right now to arrange a trip to our office for an eye health exam.

Our Bronx eye exam begins with a conversation between you and our practice’s trained and experienced staff. Our doctor will discuss the state of your vision and ask about any problems you are experiencing with your eyes, we’ll also inquire about the general state of your health since many disorders in other parts of the body can affect the eyes and your vision, such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Our office is equipped with the latest in diagnostic equipment for the eye, which our staff uses to not only check your visual acuity but to also check for any developing eye diseases or conditions, including glaucoma, cataracts, diabetes retinopathy, macular degeneration, keratoconus and many others.
Our doctor recommends a Bronx eye exam on an annual basis for most members of the family. One reason is that our vision can change from one year to the next, either worsening or sometimes getting sharper, the exam will help to adjust your vision correction. More significant is the problem that many serious eye diseases progress overtime and have no noticeable symptoms during their early stages when treatment is more effective. Only a comprehensive eye examination can diagnose these developing serious conditions. The earlier they are treated the better the result will be. Make an appointment with one of our convenient locations for an eye exam so that we can help you care for your eyes.
Good vision plays a very important role in your child’s education & recreation. Children’s ability to learn & play is affected by their visual health. Unfortunately, there are many vision problems that are common in children. The key is to see a Pelham Bay kids optometrist for regular eye exams so they can be diagnosed and treated as early as possible.
There are many common disorders that affect children’s vision. Some examples include: congenital cataracts, amblyopia, strabismus and nearsightedness. Congenital cataracts are cataracts that are present at birth and can be detected in newborns. The newborn’s natural eye lens is cloudy instead of clear which impedes vision. Although it’s not always the case, surgery is often recommended to remove the cataracts because they can interfere with normal vision development. While congenital cataracts can be diagnosed at birth, there are many common pediatric vision problems that may not be present at birth but could be detected early during an eye exam. It’s important to take your child to a Pelham Bay kids optometrist for regular comprehensive eye examinations for this reason. In the meantime, if suspect any vision problems or changes in your child’s vision, you should take him to the eye doctor right away. It’s also helpful to be aware of some of the common pediatric vision problems and warning signs. Some of them include but are not limited to: amblyopia, strabismus and myopia (nearsightedness). Amblyopia, also known as “Lazy Eye”, is a common condition in which the visual acuity of one eye is much better than the other eye. Amblyopia could be the result of another common pediatric vision problem called Strabismus in which the eyes are misaligned. One eye would look straight ahead while the other eye turns up, down or inward. If your child is nearsighted, he would be able to see objects that are nearby much more clearly than objects that are far away. Some signs include squinting and holding objects close.
If your child is due for an eye exam, contact our office today. We’ll gladly schedule an appointment with our Pelham Bay kids optometrist.
When it comes to caring for your eyes there is nothing as important as practicing Preventative care through annual eye exams at our Throggs Neck Optical practice is extremely important to maintaining good eye health. A comprehensive eye examination by our Soundview eye doctor has two purposes; it will measure your visual acuity and prescribe any vision correction that is necessary. This will allow you to see as well as you should be and reduce eyestrain and other physical symptoms, such as headaches and fatigue. The second purpose of a comprehensive eye exam is to determine the physical health of your eye as well as to detect any developing eye diseases and disorders, which often cannot be diagnosed without an examination.
Our office is equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment and technology to diagnose any eye disorders or diseases. An annual eye exam will begin with the dilation of your eyes so that our Soundview eye doctor can test them for many different conditions. Typically, a comprehensive exam at our practice consists of a vision check, eye pressure check, slit lamp examination, dilated eye exam, refraction for glasses and contact lenses, glaucoma screening and a series of other computerized tests to determine the health of your eyes. We will always listen to your concerns about your eyes and vision and conduct any additional tests necessary. The examinations are vital because many serious eye diseases, such as glaucoma and macular degeneration do not have any symptoms during their early stages when treatment is most effective and less invasive. If left to advance these diseases can cause serious vision loss or even blindness. Eye exams can also detect some diseases of the rest of the body that are reflected in the eyes including high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol.
Our practice recommends annual eye exams because your eyes are constantly changing. Your vision changes as you age, it can become worse or better, and you can develop many new eye ailments related to age such as the beginning of a cataract. Eye diseases such as glaucoma, can get progressively worse without warning so an annual exam is the only way to detect them before it is too late. Please make an appointment with our Soundview eye doctor.

Decreased tear production is typically linked to any of the following: medical conditions (lupus scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid disorders, and vitamin A deficiency), laser eye surgery ,medications (acne, hormone replacement, decongestants, certain antihistamines, and high blood pressure drugs). Tear evaporation can also be caused by any of the following: smoke, eyelid problems, wind, dry air, and infrequent blinking. While it isn’t a dangerous condition, dry eyes can become a crippling nuisance that won’t go away. Fortunately some options do exist to get rein it in. Don’t waste another second doing so.

If you need corrective lenses but would prefer to not get glasses, you might want to consider contact lenses instead. To get contact lenses, you’ll need to see a professional optometrist like one at our optical store in Country Club. Our eye doctor will need to do a contact lens exam and fitting.
While the majority of people can get them, there are certain qualifications to get contact lenses. Since they are placed inside the eye, your overall eye health must be good to get them. A professional optometrist like ours at our optical store in Country Club will need to assess the overall health of your eyes by doing a comprehensive eye examination to determine if you’re a good candidate for them. If you are, you’ll discuss the different types of contact lens options, so you can decide what the best type would be for you based on many important factors. To meet your needs, the contact lenses you pick need to meet certain requirements. Your contacts will need to: fit on the eye properly, be comfortable, provide you with the clear vision you need and suit your lifestyle and personal preference. You will have to get a special exam called a contact lens exam and fitting to accomplish this. If you prefer eyeglasses, our optometrist will perform an eye exam and will provide you with the appropriate eyeglass prescription for you.
