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.

Macular Degeneration
  by admin on May 8th, 2018

The macula is located in the central retina and is the part of your eye responsible for crisp straight-ahead vision. In some people this tissue begins to deteriorate over time. This is what is meant by Age Related Macular Degeneration. Early symptoms of macular degeneration include mild blurred and distorted vision. These symptoms can progress to severe loss of vision. Macular Degeneration is generally divided into two classifications- “dry” and “wet”. In the dry form, waste deposits builds up in the macula and causes the tissue to become thin and fail to function properly. At this stage, treatment includes changes in diet and nutritional supplements. In the wet form, new blood vessels grow into the macula and rapidly cause vision loss. In this stage, treatment includes laser or injections to stop this blood vessel growth. In both forms close monitoring with your eye doctor is necessary to reduce the risk of progression to severe vision loss.
