If your eyes are feeling itchy and irritated, then you should come to see us at Allen Eye Associates. Our Canastota NY eye doctor, Dr. Matthew C. Allen, will determine whether or not you are suffering with eye allergies, or another eye problem.

Unless you have been diagnosed with eye allergies, you will want to visit our Canastota NY eye doctor to make sure that your eyes are being irritated by eye allergies, and that you do not have an eye infection; many of the symptoms are the same. When you have eye allergies, your eyes can be red, itchy, and watery, and have other symptoms as well. Eye allergies are caused by allergens in the air such as pollen, mold, dust, or pet dander. If you have eye allergies or an eye infection, your eyes may also have swollen eyelids. Eye allergies can also play a role in developing conjunctivitis and other eye infections. Conjunctivitis is an extremely contagious eye infection, which should be treated so you do not spread it to others in the household. There are certain things you can do for relief from your eye allergies. If you are allergic to pollen, you may want to keep your windows closed, and run the air-conditioning to stay cool. If the pollen count is high, it will benefit you to stay inside as much as possible. When you are outside, you will be helped by wearing wraparound sunglasses which will keep your eyes free of pollen and ragweed. Also drive with your windows closed to limit any allergen exposure in your car. Wearing contact lenses can attract airborne allergens, so you may want to wear prescription sunglasses when outside. There are some prescription oral medications and eye drops that can be provided for allergy relief.

For an appointment to meet with our Canastota NY eye doctor for a comprehensive eye exam to see if you are suffering with eye allergies or another eye problem, simply contact us today.

Are you seeing as well as you would like? If you’re not, then this might be the perfect time to either start wearing corrective lenses or to update the ones you already have. That’s just one great reason to visit us once per year. You should also be screened for common eye diseases; ones that don’t have any obvious symptoms in their early stages. At Allen Eye Associates, we’re committed to your best possible vision and also your ocular health with our eye exam in Rome NY.

It’s all too easy to take the well-being of your eyes for granted. But by the time you being to experience symptoms that lead you to seek needed care, it may already be too late to reverse the damage that has been done. Your eyes can sustain harm or you could lose some degree of vision. And in the cases of advanced eye disease, sometimes the best that can be achieved is that you can avoid further vision loss or eye damage. And because of that, our eye exam in Rome NY is vital. Our eye doctor will take various tests, such as tonometry for glaucoma, and a slit-lamp exam for cataracts, as the foundation of determining the presence of those conditions. Others, like macular degeneration, are only applicable when you are age 40 or older. Likewise, diabetic retinopathy is a concern if you have type one or type two diabetes. Of course, your vision will also be gauged as part of our eye exam in Rome NY. Nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism can be corrected easily with a pair of eyeglasses or contact lenses. And if you currently wear them, bear in mind that your vision needs evolve over time. Updating your prescription can result in sharper and clearer vision.

Why not call us right now and book your yearly visit for our eye exam in Rome NY? We’ll arrange a convenient time for you to come in.

Just because it’s fall and winter is on the way, it doesn’t mean that you don’t need our Oneida sunglasses. Here at Allen Eye Associates, we’re committed to keeping your eyes protected, and also to providing you with the absolute best-looking designer eyewear that is available.

One thing is certain: the hazardous UV rays of the sun are present all year round, not just in summer. Our Oneida sunglasses all block out 100% of both UVA and UVB rays. You should never settle for anything less. Even 97% isn’t enough to keep you sufficiently guarded from the negative effects of these rays. Of course, there are other good reasons to get them. Glare and harsh sunlight can cause discomfort and in some instances can be dangerous, such as when you’re driving or riding a bicycle. It’s a great idea to have a barrier between you and that glare so that you can see when you need to. And beyond the practical aspects of our Oneida sunglasses, they let you indulge your sense of fashion. We’re pleased to carry a wide array of designer eyewear that bear the names that you know and trust for high quality craftsmanship and for style. We have something for every taste, every skin tone, every facial shape, and every budget. Among the brands that you will find here are Vera Wang, Ray Ban, Hugo Boss, Nine West, Banana Republic, and Jones New York. And if you would like your eyeglass prescription added, we’re pleased to do that for you. Get the best of both worlds by getting all of the advantages of sunglasses along with the sharp and clear vision that your eyeglasses provide.

There’s no better time than now to come in and choose a pair of Oneida sunglasses from our collection of designer eyewear. Or if you need an eye exam for your prescription sunglasses, just call us and we’ll schedule one for you.
