RI Optometrist

During your yearly eye exam, your eye doctor does a lot more than determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. Your optometrist will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, examine how your eyes perform together as a team and evaluate your eyes as a signal of your overall health.

Dr. Joseph Girgenti

Glaucoma is an eye disease in which the nerve connecting the eye to the brain is damaged. This is caused due to high pressure, resulting in gradual loss of sight.



Astigmatism is a condition in which the front surface of the eye or the lens, inside the eye, has an irregular curve. A common symptom of astigmatism is blurry vision.



Cataracts are the most common cause of blurry vision in people over 40. It develops slowly, clouding up the lens in your eye, making your vision foggy.
