Robert S Eisenberg, MD, PA Services

Comprehensive Eye Health Exams

Regular eye exams are an invaluable tool in maintaining healthy eyes by detecting and preventing disease. Some diseases develop slowly without causing pain or vision loss. Early detection of any problems can reduce the risk of further harm and allow for a choice of treatment options. The entire exam process can take an hour depending on the complexity of your problems You will be evaluated with a refraction, slit lamp, intraocular pressure and full retinal exam.

Cataract Surgery

A cataract is caused by the clouding of the lens in the eye. As the cataracts progress, eyeglass prescriptions change frequently and daily visual function becomes impaired.  Cataract surgery involves the removal of the cloudy lens and the implantation of an artificial lens. The current technique for cataract surgery is called phacoemulsification (ultrasound) through a small incision. Since a self-sealing small incision is used, it does not require suture closure, thus the term "no stitch cataract surgery." The entire process is completed in less than ½ hour and is performed under local anesthesia. Dr. Eisenberg is board-certified and fellowship-trained and is specifically skilled in removing cataracts and is also experienced in the recognition and treatment of complications of cataract surgery.  After surgery with traditional monofocal lenses, most patients experience very good vision far away. However, most people receiving these standard lenses still require reading glasses or bifocals to have a full range of vision.

Premium Intraocular Lens Implants (IOLs)

A premium intraocular lens implant (IOL), placed during cataract surgery, replaces your existing eye lens with an implanted lens. The purpose of the traditional IOL is to restore distance vision. While eliminating the need for glasses for distance vision, eyeglasses may still be necessary for reading and near vision when placing a traditional IOL.  Premium IOLs can correct multifocal and astigmatism issues as well. Premium IOLs allow patients to read, drive and work at their computers without complete dependence on their eyeglasses.


Glaucoma Evaluation and Treatment

Glaucoma is a disease of the eye associated with slow, progressive loss of peripheral vision. Although there are many types of glaucoma, "open angle glaucoma" is the most common. The most important risk factors include age, race, elevated eye pressure, family history of glaucoma, and other systemic health problems such as diabetes. Other types of glaucoma are less common, such as narrow angle glaucoma, and can be detected by a thorough eye examination. We consider many factors before deciding whether you need treatment for glaucoma, or whether you should be monitored closely as a glaucoma suspect. Our glaucoma evaluation includes measuring your intraocular pressure, the thickness of your cornea, and inspecting the drainage angle of your eye. We also evaluate whether or not there is any optic nerve damage, test the peripheral vision of each eye (visual field testing), and perform computerized imaging. The key to successful management is early detection and regular follow-up examination. Once diagnosed with glaucoma, therapy usually includes drops, but may also involve specialized glaucoma surgery, including laser.

Diabetic Retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is a disorder of the lining of the back of the eye called the retina. The retina functions like the film of a camera and allows images to be focused and transmitted to the brain. The vasculature is affected by diabetes and can result in blindness if retinopathy goes undetected. Two types of retinopathy develop form diabetes, background and proliferative. The background type results in swelling of the very center of the retina and can lead to loss of sight. Proliferative retinopathy is a more serious condition which may require laser and/or intraocular treatment.

Optical Boutique

For those patients needing glasses or frames, we offer a complete optical department. Since your prescription can be filled at the same place it was written, you will not only save time and travel, you will also have the security of knowing the doctor who wrote the prescription is available to answer questions. Our office is staffed with experienced opticians who specialize in high fashion eyewear and carry an assortment of designer frames.

Contact Lenses Exam

Thanks to the advances in optical technology, almost everyone is a candidate for contact lens use. This includes patients with astigmatism and also those who prefer bifocal or multifocal lenses. We offer a comprehensive array of contact lenses to suit each individual patient's needs. We offer daily disposables, extended wear soft lenses to gas permeable contact lenses. We offer regular and custom lens service for both healthy and difficult to fit patients.

Eyeglass Lenses

Eyeglass lenses look simple, but can be quite complex. You can trust our Opticians for guidance on the latest and best technology in thin lightweight lenses, multifocal designs and lens coatings. Our Opticians are highly skilled in making glasses to your exact specifications using the best choice of materials for your particular needs and budget.

  • Progressive lenses: For years, we've sought an answer to the challenge of providing effective vision correction at varying distances. We now offer progressive lenses that provide a smooth transition to improve your range of vision for near, far and everything in between, and they eliminate those lines!
  • Bifocals and trifocals are a great first step, but those "lines" can be distracting. A more comfortable and attractive solution is here today!
  • High-index lenses: Ultra thin lens, even for those very strong prescriptions.
  • Polycarbonate lenses: Shatter resistant lenses are a great choice for active lifestyles and the only lenses prescribed for children.
  • Polarized lenses: Ordinary tinted sun lenses merely darken what you see and mask the real problems of glare. Polarized lenses are designed to conquer glare. Water, snow and even pavement create glare that not only blurs vision but also causes squinting, eye fatigue and even impaired acuity.
  • Transition lenses: This tremendous technology allows your glasses to adapt naturally to changes in your environment and change from light to dark as you move between indoors and outdoors. When UV rays are present, they darken, so you're protected, and they lighten when indoors. Their lightweight design also includes scratch resistant coating.
  • Anti-reflective (AR): To drive safely at night you need all the light possible. AR Coatings increase the amount of light transmitted through eyeglasses. Reflections off the front of your eyeglasses can make it difficult for people to see your eyes. Anti-reflective (AR) coatings make eyeglass lenses virtually invisible so the focus is on you and not the distracting reflections from your surrounding environment.
  • UV Protection coating: Protects your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. We recommend that all eye wear have a UV factor of 95% or more.
  • Scratch coating: Protects your lenses and reduces scratches.
  • Tint coating: Fashion Tint adds to your appearance while adding comfort and protection.
