Here at Throggs Neck Optical, you can depend on our optometrist in the Bronx for everything from routine eye exams to prescribing eyeglasses and contact lenses; from screening you for common eye diseases to treating acute symptoms of conjunctivitis (pink eye) and ocular allergies. Our optical store is not only fully stocked with all of the frames, eyeglass and contact lenses, and other optical goods that you need to enjoy the best vision in the greatest comfort possible, but we’re also committed to your eye health.
The cornerstone of great eye care is found in an annual appointment for a complete eye exam done by our optometrist in the Bronx. First, you will be checked to determine how well you are currently seeing. If you have an existing prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, you may benefit from having an update to that prescription. Your vision needs are always undergoing changes, and what was ideal for you a year ago may not be so now. Just seeing “okay” should not be acceptable. With the appropriate contacts or glasses, you can enjoy the best possible corrected eyesight that you’re capable of. And if you never have worn prescription lenses before, this might be the right time to take advantage of them. Why squint, struggle to see, manage headaches from eyestrain, or simply settle for less-than-optimal vision?
Did you know that most common eye diseases are “silent?” That means they form and progress without offering any indications to alert you. Our optometrist in the Bronx will screen you for cataracts, glaucoma, and (if applicable) diabetic retinopathy as well as macular degeneration. Early detection is strongly associated with the most favorable outcomes.
And when you’re suffering with symptoms such as red or watery eyes, itchiness, or other concerns, you should call us and schedule an appointment with our optometrist in the Bronx. You may have an eye allergy or some acute problem that can be treated with eyedrops, medication, or even lifestyle adjustments. The well-being of your eyes is our business. Turn to us for all of your needs. And if you have not had an eye exam in the last twelve months, be sure to call today to schedule one.
