Treatment

At Brass Eye Center in Latham & Clifton Park, NY, we truly are your one-stop shop for all things pertaining to eye care, whether it’s eye exams you need, cataract or glaucoma care, laser eye surgery, or new prescription eyeglasses or contacts. Our team of eye care specialists offers all the eye care treatments your family will ever need to achieve and maintain optimal eye health and crystal clear vision. To learn more about us and what we have to offer, please visit the following pages.

  • Cataracts: A cataract is the clouding of the natural lens in the eye, causing vision to become blurry and unclear. The treatment for cataracts involves replacing the cloudy lens in the eye with an artificial lens to restore clear vision.
  • Cataract Surgery & Lens Implants: As a leading eye care provider serving the Latham, Clifton Park, and Albany areas of New York, we offer all the latest surgeries and procedures for treating cataracts. Virtually all cataract surgeries and lens implants are performed on an outpatient basis using topical anesthesia.
  • Eye Exams & Screenings: The wide range of eye exams and screenings we offer are designed to help our doctors check for, recognize, and treat all eye diseases and conditions.
  • Glaucoma: As a leading cause of blindness, glaucoma damages the optic nerve that sends images from the eye to the brain. While it cannot be cured or reversed, glaucoma can be stopped from causing you to lose your sight if it’s caught at an early stage. Our Latham & Clifton Park glaucoma treatment methods are all designed to halt the progression of the disease to help you maintain vision.
  • Diabetic Retinopathy: As an eye disease that can affect people with Type I and Type II diabetes, diabetic retinopathy damages the blood vessels in the retina to result in unclear or distorted vision. This eye disease is often detected during routine eye exams and can be controlled by controlling your diabetes.
  • Macular Degeneration: One of the leading causes of vision loss in people over the age of 65 is macular degeneration. This is a progressive disease that slowly leads to vision loss. While there is no cure for age-related macular degeneration, there are treatments available that can slow down the progression of the disease to help improve vision.
  • Corneal Diseases & Surgery: When vision is affected due to the cornea of the eye fogging over and becoming cloudy, often the cause is corneal disease. Corneal transplant surgery is often needed to restore clear vision. This surgery involves removing a small section of the corneal tissue and replacing it with corneal tissue sourced from a donor eye.
  • Laser Eye Surgery: At Brass Eye Center, we offer laser eye surgery to our patients who want to permanently improve their vision and reduce their dependency on glasses and contacts. Both our LASIK and PRK laser eye surgery procedures are safe and highly effective at correcting a variety of vision problems.
  • Dry Eyes: Tears are important for the eyes as they act as a lubricant and cleaner to keep away and wash out dust, debris, and foreign objects. Brass Eye Center offers both non-surgical and surgical treatment options for dry eye in Latham and Clifton Park designed for people who have an insufficient production of tears.
  • Optical Shop: At our Optical Shops in Latham and Clifton Park, we offer a wide selection of affordable eyeglass frames and lenses for children and adults. We can also order special sizes, colors, and styles of all types of eyewear including eyeglasses, sunglasses, swim & ski goggles, and sun clips.
