Welcome to Shadyside Eye Associates

shadyside drift1 rsrs Eyes are important indicators of overall health, and comprehensive eye care goes beyond a prescription for glasses or contact lenses. At Shadyside Eye Associates, we take the time to get to know you, your eye care history, and your vision needs. Dr. Alicia Telega provides the expert care, advice, options, and follow up you need whether you are a new patient or an existing one.

Dr. Telega specializes in the treatment of *Dry Eye and Ocular Surface Disease*, including recurrent corneal erosions, ocular allergy, blepharitis, and others. At Shadyside Eye Associates, we are using the most innovative treatments available to alleviate symptoms for our patients so that they can regain their eye health and improve vision. Please see the “Dry Eye Center” tab at the top of the page or call the office with questions.

At *Shadyside Eye Associates*, we are also doing our part to be environmentally responsible by running a nearly completely paperless office, using sustainable products in our office design and build out, and offering a complete line of very cool eco-sustainable eye wear. These glasses are made from either 100% biodegradable, recycled or sustainable materials and with excellent quality and amazing style.

Summer in the City!!

Summer in the City!!   Finally, blue skies and baseball and music festivals and days at the park…. I have been waiting for this forever! Or since last year. And if you are a current patient of mine, you know that everyone who leaves my office gets the warning –...

Is it Dry Eye or is it Allergies?

Well, of course, the answer may be it’s both! I get a lot of patients this time of year with dry eye symptoms – the dryness, scratchiness, burning, stinging, tired eyes, discomfort, variable vision – and the questions is… is this dry eye or is it allergies? And sometimes that answer is both!
