I have referred (and boasted about) Essex Eye. They are so friendly, easy to work out appointments with, etc. The experience at the Surgical Center couldn’t have been better. All-in-all I’m very thankful to be one of your patients.
Everything was great!

Eye Exams

When you arrive for your first exam, please be sure to bring your glasses, contact lens information (vials or blister packs so the staff can check the size and prescription), and a list of your medications (including eye drops).

During your exam, we will check your eyeglass and contact lens prescriptions. In addition, all patients receive screening for common eye diseases (e.g., cataract, glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration).

We provide patients with expert care as our offices are equipped with the latest in diagnostic and surgical technologies.

Emergency Services

You can call our office 24 hrs/day if there is an emergency eye condition. We contract with an after hour answering service who can contact our doctors or a covering physician if necessary.

Botox™ has traditionally been used successfully in ophthalmology for years to treat conditions which cause spasm of eyelids. Botox™, more recently, has been FDA approved for cosmetic reduction of certain facial wrinkles.

Treatment includes injection of Botox™ in several locations around the eyes. Effects can be seen within a few days and usually last for approximately 6 months. Our physicians usually utilize Botox™ to reduce wrinkles in the upper face, and facial fillers such as Restylane™ to reduce wrinkles in the lower face. We find that this gives a better result with a more natural appearance.


Facial fillers, such as Restylane™, are a wonderful non-surgical option for reducing deep facial wrinkles and folds. Facial fillers add volume and fullness to the skin, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). The before and after photo of one of our patients demonstrates the dramatic effect of Restylane™ in restoring a more youthful appearance.
