Only at Family Eye Care of Elmwood Park at every comprehensive eye exam, will our optometrists provide a thorough evaluation of your eye health. This allows for the detection of eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinal detachment, and dry eye syndrome. If you have a systemic condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or thyroid disease, you will be evaluated for any related eye disease. If your eye condition requires treatment, our optometrists are licensed to prescribe many ocular and oral medications. Should your condition require surgical intervention, you will be promptly referred to an ophthalmologist.
