Infections, Injuries & Dry Eye

Eye Infections & Injuries: Our office provides emergency services for eye infections and eye injuries.  Please call our office at 585-624-2585 during office hours or our emergency number; 585-415-4577

The staff will work with you to schedule an appointment as quickly as possible.  State of the art microscopes allow us to examine the front surface of the eye and facial areas around the eye for infection or injury.  After assessing the extent of the injury or infection a treatment plan will be formulated and explained to you.  Treatment may include medications and supportive care.  Follow-up visits to monitor your recovery will be scheduled as needed.

Dry Eyes: Symptoms include scratchy eyes, burning, mild redness and gritty feeling eyes.  Oral medications, reading, computer tasks and dry environments may aggravate marginally dry eyes.  Dry eyes can be diagnosed by using dyes to observe tear patterns, evaluation of the amount of tears on the front of the eye and from review of your symptoms.  Treatment may include artificial tears; eye drops for moisture, drops for allergies and cyclosporine drops (Restasis) to treat the surface of the eye so it can be moisturized.
