During each exam, our staff will take standard vision measurements, as well as screen for glaucoma, cataracts, and corneal and retinal disease. If corrective eye surgery is recommended, one of our corneal and refractive eye surgeons will follow-up with a thorough diagnostic exam at our Springfield, Massachusetts eye center.
Healthy eyes consistently produce tears that lubricate the eye and keep the eye’s surface smooth and clear. When the eyes are unable to produce enough tears to maintain clear vision, this condition is known as “dry eye.”
If your eyes feel scratchy and irritated, or if you are experiencing a stinging or burning sensation and excess tearing, you may be suffering from dry eye syndrome. Dry eye can be caused by several factors; it is a known side effect of a variety of medications, including antihistamines, sleeping pills, and pain medication, but it may also be associated with arthritis and tends to particularly affect women.
At Papale & Bouvier Eye Center, our ophthalmologists can diagnose dry eye syndrome with a simple eye exam or tear test. We may recommend any number of treatments, from eye drops to tear conservation. Contact our eye surgery center in Springfield, Massachusetts to schedule an exam and learn more about dry eye treatment options.
The cornea is the transparent, outermost layer of the eye that protects the eye from dust and germs and helps direct light towards the lens for focusing. When the cornea becomes impaired or damaged by injury, disease, or infection, it can become cloudy and significantly affect vision.
For many patients, the only way to treat corneal damage is to undergo corneal transplant surgery. Fortunately, corneal transplantation is considered one of the safest and most effective transplant surgeries in modern medicine. Thousands of corneal transplant procedures are performed each year, and vision is restored in as many as 90 percent of cases. At Papale & Bouvier Eye Center, our corneal specialist, Dr. J. Peter Bouvier , has studied with some of the leading corneal and refractive surgeons in the country. Our entire team is committed to producing the best results possible with corneal transplant surgery, all while exposing our patients to minimal risk.

At Papale & Bouvier Eye Center, our eye care specialists offer a variety of treatments that are designed to restore both the cosmetic appearance and function of the eyes. Included in this category is BOTOX® treatment.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is known worldwide as a cosmetic treatment for facial wrinkles, namely frown lines and lines near the brow and eyes. However, BOTOX® Cosmetic is not only a facial rejuvenation treatment, for many, it offers a solution to uncontrollable eyelid movement, or “blepharospasm.” Injected near the eyes and brow, BOTOX® Cosmetic functions to relax facial muscles, causing wrinkles and lines to smooth out and also preventing twitching and eyelid spasms that may be affecting vision.
If you are interested in learning more about BOTOX® Cosmetic, corrective eye surgery, or any of our services, contact our eye surgery center in Springfield, Massachusetts today.
