Led by Dr. Richard Adler, Belcara Health Ophthalmology is dedicated to providing the highest quality of care. Dr. Richard Adler is a board-certified ophthalmologist and a member of several prestigious medical organizations. Before joining Belcara Health, he trained at top-tier institutions, including the University of Pennsylvania and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He boasts more than 20 years of experience in patient care. Dr. Adler is a nationally recognized innovator in dry eye treatment and is frequently invited to speak throughout the country on his groundbreaking advancements for this common eye condition. But most importantly, Dr. Adler is known for his kind and gentle manner and for providing excellent results for his patients.

Comprehensive Eye Care >

Early detection of eye diseases is critical to preserving your vision and keeping your eyes feeling healthy and normal. Dr. Adler has decades of experience and expertise in providing comprehensive eye care you need to prevent, diagnose, and treat common eye diseases. At Belcara Health, we use advanced technology to examine your eyes and detect any irregularities, including cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes, dry eye, and vision issues. These conditions are often painless, so it is very important to have regular eye exams.

Dry Eye >

Dry eye is a common condition in which inflammation and inadequate tear production cause the eyes to feel dry, fatigued, and irritated. There are numerous factors that can lead to dry eye syndrome, including age, environmental conditions, and diseases. If left untreated, it can cause permanent damage and vision impairment. Belcara Health offers a groundbreaking, advanced treatment using intense pulsed light (IPL) technology. Dr. Adler is a pioneer of this technique, which is painless and highly successful.

LASIK >

LASIK is a procedure that uses laser technology to restore clear vision. It is a highly popular procedure for correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It is important to have a thorough diagnostic exam to ensure your eyes meet the criteria for this treatment. Dr. Adler has the experience, skill, and technology to accurately assess your eyes and correct your vision using this proven, effective procedure.

Surgical Vision Correction >

Surgical vision correction with refractive lens exchange corrects your vision by removing your natural eye lens and replacing it with a “bionic” lens. This procedure also corrects presbyopia, which is the aging of the eye that causes the need for reading glasses.

Cataracts >

Cataracts are a progressive eye condition in which the clear lens of your eye becomes cloudy and impairs vision. Cataract surgery replaces your cloudy lenses with lens implants and restores clear vision. There are multiple lens implant options available, so Dr. Adler will work with you to select the right one for you.

Glaucoma >

Glaucoma is an eye disease in which there is a buildup of pressure within your eyes, causing damage to the optic nerve and, if left untreated, can lead to permanent vision loss. The most common form of this disease progresses slowly and painlessly, so regular exams are critical.

Diabetic Eye >

Diabetes can cause a variety of eye conditions, including cataracts, glaucoma, and retinopathy (damage to the blood vessels of the retina), which is common in diabetic patients. Dr. Adler uses advanced laser technology and techniques to treat this condition, helping patients alleviate pain and maintain their sight.

Macular Degeneration >

Macular degeneration results from the deterioration of the central portion of the retina and causes the loss of vision in the center of the visual field. Certain forms of macular degeneration can be treated, improving your sight to varying degrees and preventing the condition from worsening. Options include medications, laser procedures, photodynamic therapies, and vitamins.

Contact Lenses >

In the contact lens world, one size does not fit all. In order to have an adequate contact lens fit, you must first have a comprehensive eye exam to ensure the health of your eyes and a proper fit. At Belcara Health, we offer a wide selection of lenses, including disposable soft contact, bifocal/multifocal, toric, and colored lenses.

Designer Eyewear >

We offer a large, varied selection of eyewear so you can showcase your personality and complement your face.
