    Cataract is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. If not treated, cataracts can lead to blindness. In addition, the longer cataracts are left untreated, the more difficult it can be to successfully remove the cataract and restore vision. During Cataract Awareness Month in June, the American Academy of Ophthalmology reminds the public that early detection and treatment of cataracts is critical to preserving sight.

    Dr. Fishkin is an experienced cataract surgeon, who specializies in the latest techniques in cataract surgery. If you are experiencing any recent changes in your vision, schedule an appointment to determine the reason and discover what options you have to improve your vision.

    March is Workplace Eye Wellness Month

    Each year, nearly 25,000 Americans visit the emergency room due to a workplace eye injury. During Workplace Eye Wellness Month, the American Academy of Ophthalmology reminds employers and workers about the importance of wearing certified and approved eye protection.

    Dr. Fishkin often sees patients in the office who have suffered eye injuries at work. While most eye injuries can be treated quickly and painlessly, patients often comment that they wish they would have worn their eye protection while on the job. For those who do suffer injuries, same-day emergency appointments are always available.


    Dr. Fishkin at the American Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting

    Ophthalmology is a specialty that changes very quickly over time. Every year brings new advances, new technologies, and new techniques for handling all aspects of eye care. Once a year, the American Academy of Ophthalmogy holds its major national meeting where ophthalmologists from across the country have the opportunity to come together and keep up with all the latest findings. As part of his commitment to provide the most current treatments for his patients, Dr. Fishkin attended this year's meeting from Nov. 15-17.

    At this meeting, Dr. Fishkin participated in sessions dealing with the latest developments in cataract surgery, LASIK, dry eyes, and many other topics. Call 201-383-9140 for an appointment today to have Dr. Fishkin demonstrate to you how the latest findings in Ophthalmology can help with any problem you've been experiencing.
