Eye Conditions in Wyckoff
This condition, also known as farsightedness, means that far-away objects can be seen more clearly, while close-up objects appear blurry. This occurs because the eye is too short or the cornea has less curvature, causing incoming light to focus too far back in the eye.
Astigmatism is an eye condition that occurs when the usually smooth, round surface of the clear front part of the eye, known as the cornea, becomes unevenly shaped. This causes incoming light to scatter, resulting in blurry or double vision at all distances.
This eye condition occurs mainly in adults 40 years of age and older. It occurs due to the lens of your eye becoming less flexible, making it harder to adapt from distance vision to close-up vision. The result is difficulty with close-vision tasks, such as reading fine print.
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a common eye condition that results in close-up objects appearing clear while objects further away appear blurry. This occurs because the eye is too long, causing incoming light to focus too far forward in the eye.
Dry Eye Syndrome
This increasingly common eye condition results either from the eyes’ inability to produce enough tears or their inability to produce high-quality tears with the right components to keep your eyes hydrated. The result is often dry, red, itchy, or gritty-feeling eyes.

Eye Disease Management in Wyckoff
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that often result from higher-than-normal inner eye pressure, which damages the optic nerve. This can disrupt visual signals from the eye to the brain, resulting in significant vision loss. Glaucoma often shows no symptoms until damage has already been done.
Cataracts are a common eye condition that is most often associated with age. The majority of patients affected by cataracts are over 60 years of age. It results from the hardening of proteins within the lens, which causes a gradual clouding. Without treatment, cataracts can result in blindness in the affected eye.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is a progressive eye disease that causes central vision loss. Wet macular degeneration is more severe than dry macular degeneration and causes abnormal blood vessels to grow under the macula and leak fluid into retinal tissue. Macular degeneration symptoms include blurry vision, poor central vision, dark or empty spots in the center of your vision and distorted vision that causes straight lines to appear wavy. Macular degeneration treatment typically includes close monitoring, eye injections or photodynamic therapy.
Diabetic Eye Care
Diabetes is a systemic condition that can cause severe damage to every system in the body, including the visual system. Diabetes-related eye conditions, such as diabetic retinopathy, result from elevated blood sugar levels disrupting normal tissue functioning in various parts of the eye. Without treatment, this can cause vision loss and blindness.
