Cataract is the cloudiness of the eye that affects your vision. Most cases of cataract are related to aging, and can occur in either eye or both eyes. The symptoms of early cataract may be improved by updating your eyeglasses, anti-glare lenses, polarized sunglasses and brighter lighting. If these measures do not improve your vision, cataract surgery may be your most effective option.
LASIK is a surgical procedure using the Star4 excimer laser to correct nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) or nearsightedness with astigmatism. In LASIK, a thin flap of surface corneal tissue is created using a device known as a microkeratome. This is done to allow access to the underlying corneal tissue known as the stroma. With the stroma exposed, multiple pulses of Star4 excimer ultraviolet light are applied to the cornea in a computer-controlled pattern, in order to remove a precise amount and pattern of stromal tissue. Therefore, following replacement of the flap, the net result is that the front surface of the cornea is reshaped (for nearsightedness or myopia, this includes flattening of the central curvature of the corneal surface). By reshaping the central cornea curvature, the focussing point of light rays entering the nearsighted eye (with or without astigmatism) is brought closer to the retina (the sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye that acts like the film in a camera) and the uncorrected distance vision is improved. Farsightedness can be corrected by reshaping the central cornea curvature so that it becomes more steeply curved, again allowing light rays to be brought closer to the retina. » Read more
Brenart Eye Clinic offers the most innovative and advanced contact lenses on the world market. Contact lenses are a unique opportunity to enhance visual function for certain individuals. A complete history and mapping of the front of the eye (cornea) enables our optometrists to recommend a specific contact lens based on the patients eye and occupational needs. » Read more
Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that gradually steal sight without warning. In the early stages of the disease, there may be no symptoms. Experts estimate that half of the people affected by glaucoma may not know they have it. Vision loss is caused by damage to the optic nerve. This nerve acts like an electric cable with over a million wires. It is responsible for carrying images from the eye to the brain. There is no cure for glaucoma—yet. However, medication or surgery can slow or prevent further vision loss. The appropriate treatment depends upon the type of glaucoma among other factors. Early detection is vital to stopping the progress of the disease.

Our opticians can recommend the lens that will work best for each individual's prescription and needs. We will then have the lenses custom made for each individual. We have an in-house optical laboratory in which these lenses can be cut into the chosen frame in the same day if possible.
Pediatric and Infant Care
American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends an eye exam by the first 12 month of age and yearly eye exams. The importance to have your child’s eyes examined at such a young age is to rule out High Refractive Error, Strabismus (Eyeturn), Amblyopia (Decreased Vision), and other Ocular Diseases. Prognosis for full recovery of vision decreases the longer the problem goes untreated. It is easier to treat and manage a problem earlier in life. » Read more
Dry Eye Syndrome
Dry eye syndrome is when the tear gland produces fewer tears. The eye depends on the flow of tears to provide constant moisture and lubrication to maintain vision and comfort. Tears are a combination of water, for moisture, oils for lubrication, mucus for even spreading, antibodies and special protein for resistance to infection.
In addition to an imbalance in the tear-flow system of the eye, there are situations that dry out the tear film. Some are: dry air from air conditioning, heat, or other environmental conditions. » Read more
Vision therapy, a type of physical therapy for the eyes and brain, is a highly effective non-surgical treatment for many common visual problems such as lazy eye, crossed eyes, double vision, convergence insufficiency and some reading and learning disabilities. » Read more
The doctors and Staff at Brenart Eye Clinic have been volunteering both their time and money to various organizations in our community and throughout the world. The right to see should be just that, a right, not a luxury.
In our community we offer free clinics to help those who would otherwise not be able to have vision care. (Next date TBA.)
Our clinic also helps to support the Pescatore Eye Association (through VOSH PA for donate) through both donations and Climb for Site. Dr. Robert Brenart has recently completed a successful venture to the top of mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for this very important cause.
