Whether or not you wear contacts lenses, and even if your vision is sharp, it’s important to schedule regular eye exams with our optometrist.

Dr. Michael Brodsky and Associates have years of experience treating patients suffering from Dry Eye Syndrome. Your tears comfort your eyes in many ways. Dry eye strikes when your eyes can’t produce enough tears for lubrication or the moisture in your tears evaporates too quickly. If you suffer from any of the symptoms come straight in for treatment and relief!
Using Clarifye and Optos Retinal Imaging, our optometrists are able to map the unique “fingerprint” of your eyes with digital precision, to pinpoint the prescription you need to see your best. We can also diagnose Glaucoma, Cataracts and Macular Degeneration and identify various systemic disorders like diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol.

Optovue iVue SD-OCT
We added the Optovue iVue SD-OCT (Spectral Domain – Optical Coherence Tomography) to provide our patients with the most complete eye exam possible. The OCT is like an MRI of the eye, but painless and quick. The results provide high definition cross sections of the eye. This advanced technology can help detect potential vision threatening diseases in their early stages when they are most treatable. More importantly, the doctor is able to see the layers in your eye that are invisible with traditional eye examination techniques. The iWellnessExam is fast, easy, and comfortable for patients of all ages and gives your doctor valuable information about the health of your eyes and your most precious gift – your sight.
Q&A with Dr. B
Dr. Brodsky Answers Your Eyecare Questions
Why Does My Eye Twitch?
Stress: While we're all under stress at times, our bodies react in different ways. Eye twitching can be one sign of stress, especially when it is related to vision problems such as eyestrain . Reducing the cause of the stress can help make the twitching stop.
Tiredness: A lack of sleep can trigger eyelid spasms.
Eye strain: you may need glasses or a change of glasses. Your eyes may be working too hard.
Caffeine and alcohol: Many experts believe that too much caffeine and/or alcohol can trigger eye twitching.
Dry eyes: More than half of the older population experiences dry eyes. Dry eyes also are very common for people who use computers, take certain medications like antihistamines and antidepressants.
Allergies: People with allergies can have itching, swelling and watery eyes. When the eyes are rubbed it releases histamine into the lid tissues and the tears. This is significant, because some evidence indicates that histamine can cause eyelid twitching.
