Eye Disease Q&A

What is eye disease?

Eye disease is an umbrella term for minor-to-severe issues that affect your eye health and vision. You can develop eye disease because of inherited traits, or because of infection, injury, or chronic health condition (as with diabetes). Eye disease can include any of the following conditions:


  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
  • Diabetic retinopathy 
  • Amblyopia (lazy eye)
  • Macular degeneration
  • Glaucoma  
  • Dry eye


In any case, it’s important to get started on your eye disease treatment early on. Otherwise, your condition may worsen, which can lead to permanent eye damage and vision loss. 

When should I see a doctor for eye disease?

Westchester Eyecare Center diagnoses and treats all types of eye disease issues. The team encourages you to come in for an evaluation if you’re experiencing or noticing:

  • Visual disturbances, such as flashes
  • Decreased peripheral vision
  • Poor tear production
  • Poor night vision 
  • Blind spots
  • Eye pain
  • Itchiness 
  • Redness 

You should also come in to Westchester Eyecare Center if you have a current contact lens or eyeglass prescription (updated within the past year), but you now find that you have to squint to see clearly. The practice provides expanded eye disease screenings during your eye exam so that you can get a thorough diagnosis quickly. 

What is the treatment for eye disease?

Your eye disease treatment depends on your specific diagnosis, but rest assured, you can expect the care you need at Westchester Eyecare Center. In addition to providing more frequent eye exams, your doctor may recommend:


  • Intravitreal injections
  • Specialty contact lenses
  • Eye drops to enhance lubrication
  • Eye drops to stimulation tear production
  • Updated contact lenses or eyeglasses
  • Activity modifications, such as frequent breaks from your computer


For more severe issues, you may need eye surgery, which is completed with state-of-the-art laser technology. Westchester Eyecare Center provides personalized co-management for many types of eye disease surgery, just in case conservative measures aren’t effective for you, so you can receive the comprehensive care you need.
