What is Comprehensive Eye Care?

As you age, you can expect changes in your vision, and you can expect an optometrist to prescribe lenses to correct those issues. But who do you see if you have other eye issues? Do you go to your primary care physician? Urgent care? A specialist?

No — you come to Bellmawr Eye Care, where we offer comprehensive eye care that covers a full spectrum of services to keep your eyes healthy and your vision sharp.

Our board-certified optometrists, Dr. Bill Ceraso and Dr. Ada Noh, are highly skilled and experienced in treating a wide array of eye conditions. Here’s what you can expect from our comprehensive eye care.

Regular eye exams

Just like check-ups with your primary care doctor, you need routine eye exams as well. When you come in to see us regularly, we can establish a baseline and monitor changes in your eye health and vision.

These check-ups also allow us to catch any problems early and treat them before they progress into more serious conditions.

Vision correction

Naturally, if you have a vision problem, we can identify exactly what’s causing it and prescribe glasses or contact lenses to correct it. Some signs that you may have vision problems include:

If any of these describe your vision, it’s time to come see us. 

In many cases, we can correct your vision without the need for glasses or contacts. If you’re nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, you might be a good candidate for LASIK, a surgery that reshapes your cornea so that light focuses properly in the back of your eye. We partner with the Kremer Eye Center for this procedure and care for you throughout the process.

Red eyes

When the whites of your eyes turn pink or red, it’s a sign that something’s wrong. The cause can be simple and temporary or a warning sign of a serious condition. Some of the most common causes of red eyes are:

If you have dry, itchy, red, or painful eyes, we can help. We are a red-eye treatment center and can help you find the right solution for your condition, whether it’s caused by an injury, infection, or allergy.

Cataract care

Age takes its toll on your bones, your skin, your organs, and yes, your eyes. Not only does your vision change over time, but the lenses of your eye develop a cloudy film over them called cataracts. 

Cataracts are very common and occur in more than 50% of Americans over 80. Although age is the primary culprit, you could also develop cataracts from an injury, eye surgery, or glaucoma.

Fortunately, cataract-removal surgery is a routine and safe procedure. We work with some of the best eye surgeons in New Jersey and come alongside you to help manage your care afterward.

Glaucoma care

When pressure builds up in your eye, it can damage your optic nerve and result in glaucoma. Although glaucoma can be treated if caught early, if you let it go untreated, you can lose your eyesight. In fact, for people over 60, it’s the number one cause of blindness

Glaucoma can develop gradually or appear as a sudden attack of severe eye pain, blurry vision, nausea, and a rainbow effect. If this happens to you, seek immediate medical attention.

Not all cases of glaucoma are emergencies. If we detect you have glaucoma, we can treat it with medication and monitor it over time or recommend you for surgery.

Diabetic retinopathy

If you’re diabetic, you already know that you have to manage your blood sugar levels, but did you know that high blood sugar can also damage your eyes?

Uncontrolled blood glucose can affect the blood vessels in your eyes, causing them to swell, leak, close off, or reproduce — a condition called diabetic retinopathy. Changes to these blood vessels cause changes in your vision. We monitor your retinal health and, depending on the stage of development, treat your diabteic retinopathy with medication or recommend you for surgery.
