A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye that affects vision. The lens is a clear part of the eye that helps to focus light/ image on the retina.
People with diabetes can have an eye disease called diabetic retinopathy. This is when high blood sugar levels cause damage to blood vessels in the retina.
Glaucoma is a disease that damages your eye’s optic nerve. It usually happens when fluid builds up in the front part of your eye. That extra fluid increases the pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve.
Dry eye syndrome is a common disease in which the eye under-produces tears or tears leave the eye too quickly.
Macular degeneration affects cells in the macula, which is the part of the retina responsible for central vision.

Dr. Alexander Movshovich is an Associate Professor at Cornell's Weil School of Medicine and is amongst a few physicians specializing in the most complicated cataract surgeries, including cases with pseudoexfoliation, secondary intraocular lens implantation, etc.
Dear Dr. Movshovich: My Husband Budd asked me to write to you with a most sincere thank you for the precious gift of improving his sight. The cataract surgery you performed on May 30th opened up his dark and cloudy world. You are the most genuine caring Doctor; and we both feel blessed and grateful you agreed to do the surgery when other doctors said, "we can't help you." The gift you give people you help is priceless. Sincerely
Dr. Movshovich and Dr. Tereschenko are highly-educated and very pleasant people. When you come to their office - it feels like home. Everybody is smiling and always willing to give you the best service they can. The wait time is about 10-15 minutes which is the shortest wait time I've ever experienced. Both of the doctors are dedicated to their work and provide patients with the care they need. You don't have to wait for months to get an appointment at this place. They work one day a week until 7 pm and also the 3rd Saturday of month, which is also very convenient, so you don't have to leave early from work during the week. It's a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED office to go and get care you need!
The staff and the doctors here are great. I did an initial consultation and l was a candidate. They are incredibly skilled and great at taking care of serious eye problems. Dr. Mariana treated me. She is very focused on helping her patients. I would encourage anyone with an eye problem to see this eye care center for help. Thanks
