Patient Reviews

THE NY Dry Eyes Center

Dr. Schlussel and Dr. Law have been treating Dry Eyes in NYC for many years and are proud to offer the very latest technology in Dry Eyes treatment at the NY Dry Eye Center. Over the last few years they have seen a large growth in patients with dry eyes symptoms due to prolonged hours New Yorkers spend in focusing their eyes on a computer, TV, and cell phone screen which causes the eye to dry out. While common in all segments of the population dry eyes is extremely prevalent with contact lens wearers, and our eye doctors have extensive experience with contact lenses specifically for dry eyes sufferers.

Q&A with Dr. Law

Dr. Law Answers Your Eye Care Questions

Is there a connection between your eyes and headaches?

Routine eye care can reveal a number of issues that may cause headaches. If you are a headache sufferer and have not had an eye exam in more than a year, we highly recommend you do. Common vision problems such as astigmatism, hyperopia, presbyopia may cause focusing issues that result in headaches. Increased screen time, such as computers, tablets and smartphones can lead to visual eyestrain and dryness which may cause intermittent blurred vision and lead to headaches. Furthermore, more serious health issues, such as glaucoma, cataracts and even optic neuritis or optic nerve swelling can cause headaches. These issues are often undetectable unless the doctor takes a look and checks the posterior part of the eye, known as the retina, and also checks the eye pressure. If you can relate to any of these issues and it has been more than a year since your last eye exam please don’t hesitate to set up an appointment so that we may help you. Schedule an Eye Exam Today!
