Cataracts and glaucoma are nearly impossible for a patient to self-diagnose in their earliest and most treatable stages. Neither disease of the eye presents symptoms until damage to the sight has already begun. Regular comprehensive eye examinations at the Bronx eye doctor of Eye Express include multiple tests that look for specific signifiers that can indicate the presence of these disease. Glaucoma is usually caused by the natural onset of aging. Cataracts, on the other hand, can be cause by a large number of risk factors, including diabetes, injury to the eye, consistent steroid use, and prolonged exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays. Our fully licensed and trained staff at Eye Express can talk to you about any risk factors you may have, and ways to avoid cataracts and maintain the health of your eyesight.

Dry eyes can be caused by many work place environments, such as an air-conditioned room, or even the simple act of sitting in front of a computer monitor for long periods of time. However, dry eyes are more than just an annoyance, they are hazardous to your health. Natural tears work to lubricate the eye and evenly coat the surface in important nutrients and cells which are vital to protecting the eye from bacteria and infection, such as pink eye. Our fully trained staff at Eye Express, your local Bronx eye doctors can assist you in identifying the differences between environmental dry eye and dry eye syndrome to seek the proper treatment for the health of your eyes.
