If you have diabetes you probably already know that you need to have periodic eye exams to make sure that you are not developing any vision problems related to diabetes. For this reason it is recommended that patients with diabetes come in to our eye care practice on a periodic basis to make sure they are not developing any signs of diabetic retinopathy or other eye diseases. Diabetic retinopathy is a serious eye disease that is caused by elevated levels of blood sugar. If you would like to come to our Somerset Hills Eye Care Center for diabetic eye testing by our ophthalmologist, contact us today. When you have diabetes you want to make sure that you consistently receive Green Knoll eye care, on a timeframe as recommended for you by our ophthalmologist.
At our eye care practice, our expert ophthalmologist is Dr. Timothy P. Sullivan. Dr. Sullivan is board-certified by the American Academy of ophthalmology. He has been consistently voted a “top ophthalmologist in New Jersey.” Many patients come to our eye care practice for comprehensive eye exams, contact lens exams and fittings, and treatment of specific eye diseases, including treatment incorporating eye surgery. We encourage our diabetic patients to come in on a regular basis for Green Knoll eye care, which includes screening for diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy affects the blood vessels that surround the retina, and can cause serious and permanent vision problems if allowed to go untreated.
Patients with diabetes may also be more likely to develop other eye problems including cataracts and glaucoma. Diabetic retinopathy is a serious complication resulting from patients having elevated blood sugar levels. This creates abnormal blood vessels to form around the eyes. This keeps the retina from being able to be properly nourished by the blood vessels. The blood vessels may even burst causing immediate vision problems. When patients come in for a diabetic eye exam our eye doctor will perform a comprehensive eye exam that will include testing for many different eye diseases and disorders including diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and cataracts. The area around your retina will be carefully examined to make sure that there are no abnormalities developing in your blood vessels. Diabetic retinopathy does not have a cure and it is best avoided by making sure that your blood sugar levels stay low. For exceptional Green Knoll eye care, make an appointment at our office to see Dr. Sullivan.

Basking Ridge Cataracts

Comprehensive Eye Exams in Basking Ridge

As you grow older, it is important that you are aware of the risks your eyes and vision face as a result. We simply become more susceptible to a number of health issues as we age, and many of them have to do with our eyes. One of the most common eye conditions to occur as a result of getting older is the development of cataracts. A cataract is a clouding over of the lens of your eye, and this cloudiness can make it increasingly difficult for you to see clearly. You may feel as though you are looking through a foggy window at all times. You might find it hard to read, drive, or even recognize faces once the cataract has developed enough. Here at Somerset Hills Eye Care Center, our Basking Ridge cataracts experts can help you through the diagnosis and treatment of cataracts.

If you are over the age of sixty, it is important that you visit us on a regular basis for comprehensive eye exams. These exams allow us to diagnose conditions like cataracts earlier on in their development. As your cataract develops, you are likely to need frequent changes in your option prescription in order to see clearly. Eventually, our Basking Ridge cataracts specialists are likely to recommend cataract surgery. Fortunately, cataract surgery is known for being highly successful and very safe. The goal of cataract surgery is to remove the damaged lens and replace it, often leaving you with better vision than before the cataract developed in the first place. If you think you might have cataracts or if you think you are at risk, you should schedule an appointment for a comprehensive eye exam with us. This meeting will allow us to discuss any symptoms you might be experiencing and confirm a diagnosis if necessary. From there, we can get started on helping you to see clearly and confidently again.

At Somerset Hills Eye Care Center, our Basking Ridge ophthalmologist and the rest of the staff members here truly care about our patients’ eye health. That is why we are proud to provide comprehensive solutions and treatments to common eye conditions like cataracts. A cataract is a gradual clouding of the lens of the eye that usually occurs later in life. As your cataracts develop and worsen, you may notice that your vision becomes significantly impaired, and that it can make going through the motions of everyday life difficult. You may struggle to see while driving, reading, or even trying to read the expression on someone’s face while having a conversation. If you notice this sort of clouded, foggy vision, you should visit our Basking Ridge ophthalmologist for treatment.

Thanks to the ever-advancing field of optical technology, we now have an even more effective treatment for cataracts than in the past. We use a surgical technique called phacoemulsification to take out the cloudy lens and implant a clear, artificial one all through one small incision. Because the incision is so small, it seals up by itself and therefore requires no stitches at all. This simple, effective surgery is usually completed within half an hour thanks to the expertise and experience of our board-certified, fellowship-trained Basking Ridge ophthalmologists at Somerset Hills Eye Care Center. Once the surgery is completed, you should find that you can see normally with the help of prescription eyeglasses. You may need bifocals and/or reading glasses to have a completely clear, full range of vision.

To learn more about eye health issues and the solutions we provide for them at Somerset Hills Eye Care Center, we invite you to browse through our Basking Ridge ophthalmologist website and to get in touch with us if you have any specific questions or concerns. You can contact us either by calling or stopping by during our designated hours of operation, or you may choose to send us a message using the Contact Us form located on our practice’s website. We hope to see you soon at Somerset Hills Eye Care Center.
