CDC’S TIPS FROM FORMER SMOKERS CAMPAIGN

When Marlene started smoking in high school, she never imagined that smoking could lead to a serious eye disease, even blindness. In this TV ad from CDC’s Tips From Former Smokers campaign, Marlene talks about the treatments that keep her from becoming legally blind—monthly eye injections that she’ll need for the rest of her life.

DIABETIC EYE DISEASE VIDEO

It is essential that all diabetics (type 1 and type 2) have their eyes dilated annually by their optometrist or ophthalmologist. Diabetic retinopathy is painless and can only be detected during your annual dilated exam. It is important to know that even if your diabetes is controlled you can still have manifestations of diabetic retinopathy.

WHAT IS HYPEROPIA?

Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is a common visual condition caused by your eyes’ inability to focus clearly on nearby objects. People who are farsighted see images at a distance more easily than they do up close. If you have headaches after reading, find yourself squinting to see clearly, and your eyes feel strained or burning, you may be experiencing hyperopia.

Hyperopia is more commonly known as “far sightedness” and can also be referred to as hypermetropia.

WHAT IS PRESBYOPIA?

Presbyopia is the gradual decline of your eyes’ ability to focus on nearby objects, causing the objects to appear blurry and out of focus. If you’ve noticed you have to hold a book farther away to read than you used to, you may be experiencing presbyopia.

Nearly everyone experiences presbyopia by their mid-40s. Much like adjusting the focus on a camera, a healthy eye lens flexes and changes shape to properly focus on objects at different distances. But as your eyes age, they lose their ability to flex. The result is diminished up-close vision. Thankfully, there are many different ways to treat presbyopia.

BLEPHEX TREATMENT FOR BLEPHARITIS

Eye Desire and Roth Eye Care are excited to announce that we are now performing the BlephEx™ treatment. BlephEx™is a revolutionary new device for eye doctors to use in the treatment of blepharitis. BlephEx™stands for microblepharoexfoliation, a painless procedure that safely and effectively removes the debris/scurf/dandruff, excess bacteria and biofilm that is responsible for the majority of low-grade inflammatory blepharitis, the primary cause of chronic dry eye disease.

Blepharitis is a chronic, inflammatory disease of the eyelids caused by an overgrowth of normal bacteria living along the lid and the base of the eyelashes. Anyone can get blepharitis at any age.

WHAT IS ASTIGMATISM?

Astigmatism is an uneven or irregular shape of your cornea, the front surface of your eye, or your lens, the part of the eye that focuses light onto your retina. If you have astigmatism, your vision may be blurred or distorted at all distances, near or far

With a healthy, normal eye, the shape of the cornea is spherical, like a basketball. This allows light to pass through the lens without distortion. Light rays focus properly on your retina to provide a sharp image of what you are seeing.With astigmatism, the cornea has more of an oblong shape, like a football, causing light to bend and distort as it passes through the lens. This makes objects appear blurry or unfocused because light rays are not focused on one spot to provide clear vision. Though astigmatism is most often hereditary, it can also be a result of surgery or trauma, injury, infection or certain rare conditions that cause the shape of the cornea to change over time.
Mixed Astigmatism
Another type of astigmatism is mixed astigmatism. If you have mixed astigmatism, symptoms of nearsightedness and farsightedness occur at the same time. This combination of vision problems makes it so that you cannot see images clearly.
What Astigmatism Means
Astigmatism is not a disease; this is a very common misconception. It’s simply a variation in the shape of your cornea or lens, and it’s very common in people of all ages. If you are nearsighted or farsighted, there’s a good chance you’ll also have a touch of astigmatism. A small degree of this refractive error is considered normal and does not require correction. But when astigmatism affects your ability to see clearly, glasses, contacts or LASIK surgery are common ways to solve the problem.
