If you live in the Manhattan or Washington Heights and you seek high-quality eyecare services, you need look no further than Broadway Vision Center at 170th. From routine eye exams to advanced eye treatment, we can serve as your family's all-in-one eye health solution.
Eye Exams - Regular eye exams are crucial for detecting diseases and disorders that can rob you of your sight. Cataracts, for instance, can cause progressive blurriness, vision loss and glare sensitivity; glaucoma can damage your optic nerves, while macular degeneration can destroy your central field of vision. Some eye diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy, are associated with specific systemic diseases.
We use state-of-the-art digital eye exam equipment, including Marco Wave Front and Carl Zeiss diagnostic technologies, to identify these and other problems as early as possible. The sooner we diagnose your condition, the sooner we can commence sight-saving treatment.
Eye Treatment - Many eye diseases can be successfully treated by our skilled, experienced optometry team. If you are diagnosed with glaucoma, for instance, eye drops, oral medications or surgery can arrest or slow the progress of your condition. Cataracts can be removed in a quick, painless outpatient surgical procedure. If you have retinopathy due to diabetes or hypertension, we can alert you to the underlying condition so you can receive the appropriate medical treatment to get it under control.
If you suffer from the eye strain and irritation known as computer vision syndrome, we may prescribe specialized corrective lenses, lifestyle adjustments or eye drops. Dry eyes can also be helped with prescription eye drops that compensate for insufficient or improperly-balanced tear film.
Vision Testing - Everyone should receive vision testing from childhood onward. Nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, convergence issues and other abnormalities can seriously impair learning and development, not to mention reading, driving and other critical tasks. Our advanced techniques can pinpoint refractive errors so we can prescribe an accurate prescription for corrective lenses.
Corrective Lenses - Glasses or contact lenses can restore crystal-clear vision even in the face of severe refractive errors. If you want a separate pair of prescription sunglasses, we can create those for you as well. Our clinic relies on the latest in all-digital lens manufacturing technology to ensure that your lenses are fabricated to exacting specifications. We can advise on which of the many available types of contacts are the best fit for your particular needs -- and we'll even match online prices!
Designer Frame Selection - Why go to a separate optical boutique for fashionable frames when you can find a wide selection right here at Broadway Vision Center at 170th? We offer frames from some of the top brands in the industry, including Coach, Converse, Disney, DKNY, Ralph Lauren, Polo, Prada, Ray-Ban, Lacoste, Tom Ford, Giorgio Armani, Versace and others.
