Management of Ocular Diseases & Conditions

Many eye problems and diseases can be corrected if they are identified early. That is because vision problems often develop slowly and present no warning signs.

Proudly serving Westchester County from our Hartsdale location for more than 40 years.

At Hartsdale Family Eyecare, Dr. Arlene Schwartz is specially trained in the treatment of eye diseases. With over 40 years of experience along with the latest instrumentation, she can promptly diagnose and treat vision problems and ocular disease.

Dr. Schwartz is experienced and certified in the treatment and management of many ocular conditions including cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, dry eye syndrome, blepharitis, conjunctivitis (pink eye), allergies, retinal detachment, and floaters. She works closely with health specialists in the community when necessary to make sure the proper preventive medical care and treatment is achieved to ensure a lifetime of eye health and the best vision possible.
