    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.

    AUGUST IS CHILDREN'S EYE HEALTH AND SAFETY MONTH

    August is Children's Eye Health and Safety Month. As you prepare your children for the beginning of the new school year, make sure you're not neglecting their eye health. Many children aren't aware they have a visual problem, since they assume that everyone sees the world the way they do. One in four school-age children have some form of vision problem. Since more than 80% of early learning is visual, it's extremely important to pick up visual problems as early as possible.

    Dr. Fishkin has customized his pediatric eye exam to obtain a large amount of information about a child's visual system in a minimum amount of time, and with no discomfort. Most of the time, no eye drops are necessary. Children often look forward to their visits in our office, as they experience the eye exam as a series of "games" they play with the doctor.

    JULY IS DRY EYE DISEASE AWARENESS MONTH

    July is Dry Eye Disease Awareness Month. Dry eye disease affects approximately 40 million people in the U.S. and fewer than 5% of people with dry eyes have been accurately diagnosed and are being treated.

    Dry eye disease is a common, uncomfortable eye condition caused by a lack of tear production or poor quality of tears produced. Typical symptoms can include burning, itching, redness, and excess abnormal tearing. Dry eyes can interfere with contact lens comfort, and cause issues with reading or computer use.

    Fortunately, since dry eye disease is so common, there are a number of methods to succesfully treat the problem. These include eye drops, nutritional supplements, lifestyle modifications, and simple in-office procedures.

    If you've been experiencing dry eye symptoms, call the office and schedule a complete eye exam, including a dry eye evaluation.

    YES, YOU CAN WEAR CONTACT LENSES!

    Every day in our office, we see people who were told in the past that they couldn't wear contact lenses, or who had to stop wearing contact lenses for various reasons. But with the latest generation of contact lenses, there is a contact lens for almost everyone. Just in the last year...
    - There are new lenses for people with dry eyes.
    - There are new lenses for people with astigmatism.
    - There are new lenses for people who need help with reading as well as distance at the same time.
    - There are new colored contact lenses which are more comfortable, and more realistic, than previous lenses.
    If it has been over two years since you last tried contact lenses, you owe it to yourself to try the latest advances in contact lenses. Almost all lenses are available as free samples, or with money-back guarantees, so there is no financial risk involved.
