Dr. Alan Schlussel - Eyewear as Unique As you In West Orange, New Jersey
Dr Schlussel is a great doctor. Went to him with extreme dry eyes and my meibmomian glands we're clogged. He treated me with various drops and suggest lipiflow. That was a game changer. I went from blurred vision & burning eyes to being able to see and a great amount of relief. The doctor and his staff are excellent. I highly recommend Dr. Schlussel.

A month ago my vision went blurry, my eyes felt weak and fatigued and I felt like I had a film over my eyes. I was terrified of what was happening. I went to an eye doctor who told me my eyes were bone dry and sent me on my way to figure it out. Lost, I bought every eye care drop, ointment and OTC treatment I could find. Nothing was helping. So I searched for a dry eye specialist. Dr. Schlussel treats DRY EYE. Not just the symptoms but holistically. He guides with a process that includes prevention, protection and treatment. You can tell he is passionate about what he does. He has in house diagnostic testing that showed me as a patient, EXACTLY what was happening. If I didn't get this level of information, I might go on a terribly destructive path for many years. I look forward to following his guidance and seeing improvements. PS. staff is super friendly and the Dr. sees you promptly.

Very pleased by the care I’ve received by Dr Schlussel and his staff. I’ve been suffering from dry eye that’s made daily life challenging and irritating. He treated me with various drops and the Lipiflow. The Lipiflow was a complete game changer. Within days of completing the treatment, the burning, painful irritation stopped. I still have days with dryness as the ailment is not curable but at least the quality of my life has improved greatly. I highly recommend all dry eye sufferers to see Dr Schlussel. He has dry eye himself so he knows what he’s doing plus he’s friendly and his staff is too.

What a pleasure it was going to Dr Schlussel’s new office today in West Orange. His staff including Christine and Mary welcomed me with warm friendly smiles. Dr Schlussel is caring and very knowledgeable. The office is well equipped with state of the art technology. I was truly amazed how easily Dr Schlussel diagnosed the annoying “floater” in my left eye and put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend Dr Schlussel to anyone. I can’t imagine after today’s visit entrusting anyone else with my eyecare.

I actually look forward to my eye exams - how amazing is that?! For years, I've had chronic dry eye caused by MGD, and Dr. Schlussel was the only one who diagnosed the root cause. Years of eye drops, constant tearing, mucous, itching, burning sensations. With a regimen of Retaine, PRN Omega 3, I feel 90% better. Remarkable. Today's visit involved four state of the art diagnostic tests to check my eye health, done by his staff in his new office space, before seeing the doc. He asks a wide range of questions, key is he actively listens to my answers, which spark new questions/answers. I have never felt rushed - he's never once looked at his watch, or popped in-and-out to juggle other patients. He was extremely thorough, running through several additional tests, noticing even slight changes in my vision, and adjusted my eyeglass prescription accordingly. Though with proper eye care and using Retaine has been a marked improvement on my quality of life, he introduced the possibility of Xiidra and a Lipiflow treatment. Diving into the pros and cons of each. No pressure, just the facts laid out in layman's terms. No 'selling' going on here, only what may work - or not - for me. Modern equipment with the knowledge to go with it, combined with the old-school "warm doctoring" I grew up with. His staff is accommodating and friendly, explaining all charges. I booked through Zocdoc, updating my insurance information, so the check-in lasted all of five minutes (including a short questionnaire.) I recommend Dr. Schlussel without reservation. My wife and friends now go to him for their eye care.
