Eye Conditions We Treat

Eye Conditions treated at Yasgur Eye AssociatesThe following is a partial list of of diseases and disorders we treat. To learn more about these and other diseases and conditions of the eye, visit eyeSmart.org.


  • Age Related Macular Degeneration
  • Allergies: many topical treatments and pills cause rebound attacks.
  • Abscess: always begins with pain, and can be treated promptly in our hands with pills, drops, and rarely surgical drainage.
  • Angle closure/ Narrow angle glaucoma: early stage diagnosed by gonioscopy and OCT. Almost always responds well to office laser with a few days of eyedrops afterward. Late stage very painful, with intermittent, or even permanent loss of vision. Control becomes more difficult, but pain relief can be very quick and efficient.
  • Anterior basement membrane dystrophy of the cornea: usually causes morning pain, and can be diagnosed with OCT and slit lamp. Topical bedtime medication can usually control it.
  • Astigmatism: see refractive errors.

  • Basal cell / Squamous cell carcinoma of eyelid: It's cancer. Let us remove it before it takes the entire eye! We usually remove the tumor in an operating room, using a microscope, a send margins for additional pathology exams to be sure the OR microscope gave us correct information.
  • Blepharitis [redness or crusting]: is very common, often associated with dry eye diseases.
  • Blepharochalasis: So much sagging skin, there is chronic infection/ inflammation/ blocked vision. Quick outpatient surgery repairs this, after photos and visual fields document it for insurance.
  • Band keratopathy: can be diagnosed with OCT. Then it can be repaired with outpatient therapy, or sometimes amniotic membrane graft covering.
  • Blepharoptosis: When the eyelids fall asleep before you do, you may need them lifted. Look up the Levator Aponeurosis to learn where we have to enter to make this outpatient operation safe and effective. It almost always has to be done for both eyes to balance the effect.

  • Cataract
  • Central serous chorioretinopathy: diagnosed best with HD photos and OCT. Treatment is staged, and is always partly at home with pills and eyedrops, partly in the office.
  • Chalazion / cellulitis / rosacea related: Treated with pills and eyedrops; sometimes injected medication and rarely, a brief operation.
  • Choroidal nevus, diagnosed best with HD photos and OCT: Even though it is a rare event, cancers grow in these eye freckles, more than ever before. They can only be seen by an qualified observer. And even our eyes are not as detailed as our diagnostic imaging tools.
  • Conjunctivitis: viral, allergic, bacterial, rosacea .[pink-eye]: Always treated with eyedrops or ointments. But choosing the medication for allergy will make the virus or bacteria worse!
  • Corneal ulcer/ abrasion/ erosion: These are usually accompanied by great pain, unless you wear contact lenses. Then, your eye nerves fool you, and these always are worse, with less pain!
  • Cold sores of eye: Like cold sores anywhere. They begin with a tingle, then a blister, then hurt like... In the cornea, they scar, and are the leading cause of contact lens users needing cornea transplants. So, if you have had any cold sores anywhere, at any time, and get a "pink-eye", get to see us promptly, please, or any other Eye-MD.
  • CNV, Choroidal neovascular membranes

  • Eyelid weakness: with: entropion, ectropion, ptosis, tired eyes.
  • Epiphora [watering]: blocked duct between eye and inside nasal passages.


  • Facial Wrinkles and Crease: are treated with various strengths of retinol and anti-oxidant peel agents, and lasers, to rejuvenate and hydrate the deep dermis, before attempting anything more severe. Rejuvenation can take 6 to 9 months of treatment, most at monthly intervals after initiation dosing.
  • Floaters and Flashes

  • Hordeolum: blocked oil duct , infectious , rosacea related.
  • Hyperopia: [farsightedeness] see refractive errors.
  • Hyphema: usually injury related blood in the front chamber of the eye; often leads to glaucoma and other trouble.

  • Ischemic Optic Neuropathy: recently related to ED pill use, but usually vascular disease: diagnosis aided by OCT.

  • Loosened Lasik Flaps: diagnosed by OCT and slit lamp exams.

  • Macular Degeneration: see below.
  • Macular pucker/ vitreo-macular traction/ macular hole / epiretinal membranes: diagnosed best with OCT and HD photos; this family of diseases has become more reliably treated with the newer medications. They remain very difficult to diagnose without advanced diagnostic testing, and are most often invisible to the "routine" vision examination.
  • Myopia: [nearsightedness] see refractive errors.

  • Normal tension glaucoma: diagnosis aided by OCT, HD photos of optic nerve, and visual field tests.

  • Optometrist examination and care: We have an optometrist on staff to offer family eye care for routine and vision exams, contact lens exams and fittings, some of the dry eye disease services and emergency care.
  • Ocular hypertension/ often a precursor to glaucoma: diagnosis aided by OCT of retina nerve fiber layers and OCT of corneal thickness in microns.

  • Pink eye
  • Posterior capsule opacification: after cataract, diagnosed by the slit lamp exam; treated with a laser in the office, and usually, no special post-op care required.
  • Presbyopia: aging eyes begin to lose close focus, and need magnification lenses. We can often make that more convenient with prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses.
  • Pterygium/ pinguecula: if symptomatic, may be due to a dry eye disease, or too many hours of sunlight. Treatment may be a simple lifestyle recommendation, or may require eye drops, or sometimes surgery. Modern surgery would utilize an maniotic membrane graft to minimize chances of recurrence, and minimize chances of visible scar.

  • Refractive Errors
  • Retina artery occlusion: diagnosed best with HD photography and OCT. Treatment is complex, and requires participation of your internist, perhaps cardiologist, or even a vascular or stent surgeon.
  • Retina tear/detachment: see floaters.
  • Retina vein occlusion
