The doctors at Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania work as a team to offer compassionate, experienced eye care for aging eyes – comprehensive eye care that encompasses the diagnosis and management of a wide variety of eye conditions.

  • Vision Care: Complete, detailed eye examinations and treatment, including care for aging eyes and the ability to prescribe all types of conventional and specialized corrective lenses and contacts.
  • Cataract Care: Through detailed eye examinations, we will assess your vision and provide you with optical and/or surgical options to best meet your visual and personal needs.
  • Diabetic Eye Care: Because diabetics have an increased risk of developing eye diseases which may cause vision loss, we offer specialized diabetic eye care that includes annual examinations, communications of your ocular status to your other diabetic providers to assist them in assessing your diabetic management and coordination with our retina specialists for treatment.
  • Glaucoma Care: As many as half of all people with glaucoma may be unaware of their disease. Our extensive expertise with glaucoma and our state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment helps us identify, diagnose and treat glaucoma as early as possible to control the disease and slow or halt vision loss.
  • Macular Degeneration: The leading cause of blindness in people over the age of 60. Early detection can offer preventive measures and help to avoid serious vision loss. We have the latest in retinal imaging and experienced retinal specialists to help us intervene with specialized treatment.
  • Neuro-Ophthalmology: There is a close tie between ophthalmology and neurology that addresses a variety of conditions related to vision and eye movement. And of course, our neuro-ophthalmology team provides comprehensive evaluation, diagnosis and treatment.
  • Oculoplastic and Cosmetic Surgery: With aging, or due to heredity, the eyelids may undergo changes which can make an otherwise youthful individual appear tired, sad, or even angry. Through cosmetic eyelid surgery, fatty bags under the eyes, excess skin and fat of the upper eyelids, and drooping eyebrows can be dramatically improved. The first step is a comprehensive examination by an oculoplastic surgery specialist at Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania.
  • Retinal Eye Care: Every year, more than 30 million American adults suffer from a variety of retinal diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and retinal tears or detachments. Each of these eye conditions have many of the same symptoms, the most common of which is blurred vision or flashes and floaters, and many can have a significant impact on your overall quality of life if not detected and treated as soon as possible.
