Eye Health, Disease, Emergencies, Surgery, etc.

Disease Diagnosis & Treatment of Eye Disease

  • We treat many patients for eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, conjunctivitis, dry eye, etc.
  • We identify and treat the eye consequences of systemic (body) diseases, such as High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Thyroid disease, Lyme disease, etc.  Each can have profound effects on the eye as well as the entire body.   At times, body diseases are first detected during an eye examination.
    • High Blood Pressure and Diabetes can cause changes in the retina (the back of the eye
    • Diabetes can also cause cataracts and glaucoma
    • Thyroid disease can make your eyes feel dry.
  • We have invested in the needed instrumentation to arrive at conclusive diagnoses.

Emergency Eye Care

Some eye problems occur suddenly and require immediate attention.  Examples include:East Brunswick eye care

  • a piece of metal or a twig( foreign body) in the eye that must be removed
  • a suddenly red eye can be due to either an eye allergy, infection, or an inflammation
  • a pink eye or red eye (conjunctivitis) that requires medication
  • a scratch to the front part of the eye (corneal abrasion)
  • sudden flashes or floaters (may be a sign of a retinal detachment)
  • sudden pain and sensitivity to light (uveitis, iritis, corneal abrasion)

Surgical Issues

Our eye doctor in Old Bridge, NJ manage the vast majority of eye health issues within our own office, such as patients with Glaucoma and Cataracts. We treat patients with both topical (on the eye) and/or oral medication.

Some of the surgical procedures that we do within the office include:

  • removing foreign objects that have recently entered the eye.
  • removing longer standing objects such as rust or metal from the eye.
  • inserting punctual plugs for patients with dry eye
  • removing lid lesions and skin tags

At times we consult with the excellent optometrists and ophthalmologists at Omni Eye Service, to bring the best to our patients.  We work closely with the ophthalmology sub-specialists who provide cataract, glaucoma, retina, oculoplastic, and pediatric surgery and evaluations.  We co-manage patients who need cataract surgery and see them for all preoperative and postoperative care.  The mutual respect between optometry and ophthalmology at the Omni Eye Service referral center enables us to provide the best care to our patients.


Teletherapy @ Home!


Dear Valued Patient,

At Family Eye Care, the health and safety of our patients and employees is our top concern.

Our office has a long-standing practice of disinfecting all areas of our office throughout the day, and all clinic areas are disinfected prior to every patient seen.

As always during the peak of flu season, and with the growing concerns around the Coronavirus, we have taken extra measures to increase frequent cleaning and have provided additional training and precautions to our staff to help keep their health and yours safe.

As a reminder, if you have fallen ill, have traveled abroad, or had close contact with someone who has traveled abroad within the past 14 days and are due to be seen for an appointment, please let our office know. We will be happy to change your appointment to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you.
