Your eyes can be uplifted, thanks to Upneeq, the only FDA-approved prescription eyedrop for acquired ptosis (low-lying lids).
Now available with a prescription from your doctor at South Jersey Eye Associates, a daily drop of Upneeq® (oxymetazoline hydrochloride ophthalmic solution), 0.1% can lift your upper eyelids and open your eyes, as demonstrated in the photos below of an actual SJEA patient.
Learn more about what Upneeq® can do by speaking with your doctor at South Jersey Eye Associates and reviewing the downloadable Upneeq-Patient-Education-Brochure.
Note: Other medications may limit your ability to be prescribed Upneeq. Your eye doctor at SJEA will be sure to go over those details with you.
South Jersey Eye Associates can help you make proper contact lens recycling a part of your routine. Our office is now participating in the Bausch + Lomb ONE by ONE Recycling Program, where any used blister packs, top foil, and lenses can be recycled, no matter the brand. Just drop them off in the recycling bin located in our entrance lobby, as shown below with SJEA’s Dr. Russell W. Chappius III.
Upon request, South Jersey Eye Associates also has small reusable recycling bins that you can take home to collect your recyclable materials before dropping them off into our main bin.
For every 10 pounds collected, TerraCycle will donate $10 to Optometry Giving Sight, which funds programs to deliver desperately needed vision care, train local eye care professionals, and develop sustainable infrastructure in developing countries.
Families are experiencing even more time on their screens, whether it’s for work, school, or entertainment. This increase in time on computers, tablets, or phones increases their exposure to blue light.
The eye care professionals at South Jersey Eye Associates are concerned that overexposure to blue light may contribute to digital eye strain and are offering the BLUE LIGHT BLOCKER EYEGLASS PACKAGE special to you and your family.
This $150.00 special offer includes single vision lens with blue light blocker and anti glare coating. Lenses are UV treated. One (1) year warranty on frame and lenses. Must purchase a complete pair of eyeglasses. No other discounts or insurances apply. Offer good through June 30, 2021.
