Dry Eye Clinic
Most wanted Eye procedures
Dry eye can be caused by a multitude of factors such as deficiency in the tear film. The tear film is a layer that lubricates the outer portion of the eye known as the cornea. The tear film provides comfort and clarity in vision. The tear film consists of 3 layers which are the mucin layer, aqueous layer and lipid layer. The mucin layer is the closest in proximity to the cornea followed by the aqueous layer which is then protected by the lipid layer. Disruption in any layer can lead to dry eye symptoms.
Glaucoma is a disease that damages the optic nerve, and can lead to vision loss if left untreated. In early stages, patients often have none- to- minimal symptoms, which makes it vital to have yearly comprehensive eye examinations to be screened for glaucoma.
At Harvard Square Eye Care, we have the latest technology in diagnosing and managing glaucoma, including the Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Visual Field testing machines. Our certified Glaucoma specialists are able to detect early signs of glaucoma, and provide treatment to prevent optic nerve damage and thus prevent vision loss.
Diagnoses and Treatment
All of our optometrists on staff are trained to diagnose and treat any type of issue that can arise in regards to ocular health. Common problems such as dry eye, red eyes (pink eye), keratoconus, bacterial conjunctivitis, allergies, and contact lens discomfort, can be easily relieved and our experienced doctors will take the time and care to ensure your optimal eye health. Our doctors regularly see patients with symptoms such as flashing lights, floaters, or other visual changes that can occur due to what’s called visual migraines (ocular migraines).
Our optometrists diagnose glaucoma, cataracts, age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), retinal holes, and retinal tears. We also can view diabetes, hypertension or other systemic diseases. Our optometrist’s role in the eye health of our patients is the full scope and you can come to see us for all eye problems.

The staff at Harvard Square Eye Care are very kind, helpful and knowledgeable. The eye doctor is great with the eye visit and answering any questions you have!
I had my routine eye exam here. The front desk staff are very attentive, and they do well with covid-19 protocols. Doctor Cuomo was super thorough during my eye exam and answered all my questions. Such a sweet & personable healthcare professional, highly recommend.
I have never been to a place with kinder and more courteous staff. Everyone from the folks at the front desk (who were endlessly helpful and patient) to the optometrist (who was simply amazing at his job) were exceedingly nice and professional. I truly cannot recommend a placer more highly!
