FAQs

Blue Light, UV and Your Eyes

Visible light is much more complex than you might think. Stepping outdoors into sunlight; flipping on a wall switch indoors; turning on your computer, phone or other digital device – all of these things result in your eyes being exposed to a variety of visible (and sometimes invisible) light rays that can have a range of effects

Cataracts

A cataract is a clouding or darkening that develops in the normally clear lens of the eye.  This prevents the lens from properly focusing vision. It is not a film that grows over the surface of the eye. Cataracts are characterized by the area of the lens that is affected. No one is certain what causes a cataract, but it is known that chemical changes within the lens cause it to become cloudy. This is often thought of as a part of the natural aging process, but it may also result from heredity, an injury or disease.

Diabetic Eye Disease

Diabetes mellitus is described as a modern day epidemic, exacting a serious health and financial toll on almost 1 in every 10 American adults. But the number of people living with pre-diabetes, a health condition that typically has no symptoms and increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, is even higher. 

Is Dilation Necessary?

Ultra-widefield imaging devices have the capacisty to document peripheral retinal pathology, providing up to a 200-degree temporal and nasal imaging field and the ability to image up to 82% of the retina. However, retinal lesions located anterior to the equator are likely to be missed by doctors using UWFI alone. Researchers have determined this technology to have reduced sensitivity (36%) for the detection of the lesions compared with binocular indirect ophthalmoscopy using scleral indentation (76%). It was concluded that ultra-widefield imaging alone is not sufficient for making a clinical diagnosis.

Digital Eye Strain

Modern technology has enhanced our lives with digital devices. Your eyes are looking at a pixelated image that alternates on flickers multiple times per second. It is harder for your visual system to maintain a sharp focus on an electronic image compared to a hard image. 

Eye Safety

Each year more than 2.5 million eye injuries are repored. Of these reported injuries, 90% could have been prevented with proper protective eyewear. Many potential causes for harm exist in your home. It is important to have safety glasses readily avail-able. Common causes of in home injuries include hot grease, chemicals and yard tools such as mowers and edgers.

Macular Degeneration 

Everyone has heard of macular degeneration and knows that it is an age related condition. There are two types of macular degeneration (AMD) – dry and wet. Dry AMD is a slow progressive form in which many people maintain functional vision. However, if significant scar tissue develops, the loss of vision can be severe. Wet AMD is a rapid onset of vision loss due to bleeding into the macular area of the eye. Recently new medications are showing promise in treating Wet AMD. 

Dry Eye

Do you rub your eyes because of itchiness? Are your eyes chronically red or watery? If you suffer from any of these conditions, you might be having dry eye. Dry eye can be a frustrating problem. With the appropriate eye care provided by our doctors, dry eye can be treated.
