  • Is using eye drops every day bad for you?

    It would of course depend on what type of drops and the reason you are taking them. If they are for documented elevated eye pressure, for inflammation, or other prescribed reasons, then yes, it is not only okay, but necessary. If they are for dry eye or allergy, sometimes they are needed multiple times each day. Your EyeMD would be best to help you determine the proper regimen for your individual case. READ MORE

He manages them all with the same care and compassion needed by someone in his specialty. He is also an expert cataract surgeon, tackling both the routine and complex cases with precision, and utilizing the latest in microsurgical phacoemulsification technology.

With a broad educational background, Dr. Ehrenhaus graduated with his medical degree from SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and completed his residency in ophthalmology at the Saint Vincent Catholic Medical Centers in NY.
