Excellent Eye Care by Dr. Mark Hornfeld, MD
Aside from cataract surgery, high-tech IOL implants and Lasik, Dr. Mark Hornfeld offers ophthalmological treatment and management for a wide range of problems. We can help you identify keys signs for any serious eye problems you may be at risk for.
We can help identify and treat the following conditions:
- Glaucoma Management: Glaucoma can damage the optic nerve that is responsible for carrying the signals to the brain that make vision possible. It is pertinent that Glaucoma be detected early so that damage to the optic nerve can be prevented.
- Diabetic Retinopathy: It is important for people who have diabetes to have routine appointments to monitor for possible retinal problems because they are more at risk for serious eye problems. Early detection can play a key role in your vision.
- Macular Degeneration: Monitoring and therapy is essential to treat macular degeneration. This condition damages the macula, the central region of the retina that produces the image in the eye and can be compared to film in a camera.
- Dry Eye Syndrome: Dry eye syndrome can cause blurred vision and irritation. We can tell you about how conventional lubrication, therapy and punctal closure can help to improve your overall comfort and vision.
While we have tried to describe these problems to provide you with an overview, nothing can beat a diagnosis by a qualified ophthalmologist. If you feel you may be suffering from any of these, please call our offices at (212) 580-8881 for a free consultation!
