Have you been trying to find an eye doctor whom you feel you can trust with the health of your eyes? It is a big responsibility to give to someone and we understand your desire to be seen by the best doctor available. That is why we know when you are looking for a doctor to give you eye exams in the Bronx, that you will be very happy with the eye exams and vision testing that you get at our practice, Park Professional Eyecare.
At our practice, our expert optometrist is Dr. Ralph Paternoster. Dr. Paternoster has been providing top-notch eye care as an optometrist for many years. He specializes in comprehensive eye exams, contact lens exams and fittings, orthokeratology (ortho-k) and treatment of many eye diseases and disorders. At our practice you will be able to get comprehensive eye exams in the Bronx that will leave you completely assured that your eyes are being well taken care of. During the first part of our eye exam, our eye doctor will check your eyes for any refractive problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. Any of these problems can be easily corrected with eyeglass or contact lens prescriptions. If you are over 18 you may want to see if you qualify for LASIK vision correction – Dr. Paternoster will be able to discuss that possibility with you. He also can treat you with orthokeratology contact lenses if you have myopia or astigmatism. This will allow you to have better vision without wearing glasses or contact lenses during the day – you simply wear special ortho-k lenses at night when you sleep.
During our eye exams in the Bronx, your eyes will also be screened for many eye diseases and disorders. This is very important because many eye diseases do not even cause any obvious symptoms until vision is already lost. This is the case with glaucoma, one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. During our comprehensive eye exam you will be tested for many conditions including but not limited to: glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal tears, other problems of the retina, problems of the macula, and problems of the cornea. It is important that you have a comprehensive eye exam on a regular basis so our doctor will be able to catch any eye problems when they are in the early stages of development. This way it will be much more likely that you will be able to receive treatment that stands the greatest chance of being successful.
