Tackling Astigmatism with Expertise

Astigmatism, characterized by an irregularly shaped cornea, can lead to blurred vision at various distances. At Kips Bay Optical, our expert team offers comprehensive astigmatism care services to rectify this condition.

Treatment for Astigmatism

Our specialized treatments for astigmatism encompass a range of options. Corrective glasses featuring aspheric lenses can effectively address this condition. Likewise, contact lenses equipped with toric lenses offer an alternative solution, providing clear vision and improved eye comfort.

Reclaiming Close-Up Clarity: Presbyopia Solutions

Presbyopia is a common age-related condition that affects near vision. At Kips Bay Optical, our dedicated presbyopia care services restore clear near vision, ensuring you can continue enjoying close-up activities.

Treatment for Presbyopia

We offer a selection of treatments to address presbyopia. Reading glasses or bifocals can be highly effective in providing clear near vision. Additionally, multifocal contact lenses offer a comfortable and convenient solution. We may recommend refractive surgeries like LASIK or PRK for those seeking permanent correction, providing a lasting solution for presbyopia.

Enhancing Comfort and Clarity: Dry Eye Care

Dry eye is a common condition that affects many individuals. At Kips Bay Optical, our dry eye care services alleviate discomfort and improve vision clarity. Whether environmental factors, medication, or hormonal changes cause dry eyes, our team is well-versed in tailoring treatments to your unique needs.

Dry Eye Treatments

Our team offers a range of treatment options customized to the cause and severity of your dry eye condition. Over-the-counter solutions such as artificial tears or lubricant eye drops can replenish moisture for mild cases. If these prove insufficient, we may prescribe specialized drops to stimulate natural tear production or provide short-term relief with steroids.

In more severe instances, we may recommend a punctal insert — a tiny, slow-release lubricating device placed inside the lower eyelid. Additionally, treatments for those with concurrent blepharitis (eyelid inflammation) may include a heated hot compress mask, specialized eyelid scrubs, or antibiotic ointments.

We may advise punctal plugs to reduce tear drainage and prevent excessive dryness. This approach can eliminate symptoms when discontinuing or switching medications is feasible. Your doctor may also suggest a temporary hiatus from contact lens use or a switch to a different brand or type, promoting hydration.
