Eye Exams Give Insight to General Health
  by admin on August 13th, 2018

A comprehensive eye exam provides insight into much more than a glasses prescription. When your pupils are dilated we are able to clearly examine small blood vessels in the retina in the back of the eye. These veins and arteries in the eye are one of the best ways to see changes that may be occurring throughout the rest of the body. Many common conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and elevated cholesterol cause changes that are easily seen in the eye. This is just one of many reasons why we recommend all people have an eye exam once a year, even if they feel they are not having vision symptoms. So when making plans for routine health visits, be sure to include your annual eye exam.

Lumify
  by admin on May 30th, 2018

Lumify is a new over the counter eye drop that you may have seen advertisements for or noticed while at the store. This drop is intended to relieve eye redness. The active ingredient in Lumify is different from other drops that try to get the red out. Unlike other drops, studies have shown that Lumify does not lose effectiveness over time, does not cause rebound redness that is worse than it was originally, and is very safe to use. While the underlying cause of eye redness needs to be determined and treated appropriately, Lumify may be helpful in addition to other treatments and improve the overall appearance of the eye. If you have any questions about whether this new drop could be useful to you, contact our office, and we will be happy to discuss this treatment with you.
