January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month

January 02, 2015

In the United States, approximately 120,000 people are blind from glaucoma, accounting for 9% to 12% of all cases of blindness. If you have glaucoma, don’t keep it a secret. Let your family members know. 

Glaucoma is a condition in which a build-up of pressure inside the eye, referred to as “intraocular pressure,” causes damage to the optic nerve, which transmits images to the brain. Prolonged damage to the optic nerve from high eye pressure can lead to irreversible vision loss or blindness.

Dr. Joseph Myers, OD FAAO

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease associated with aging that gradually reduces central vision, making reading and driving difficult. AMD affects the macula, the part of the eye that gives you 95% of your vision, including color vision. The macula is located in the center of the retina where we get our central and most important vision. With AMD, the disruption of the macular tissues inhibits a sharp image, resulting in a painless, gradual loss of vision.

Dr. Joseph Myers OD FAAO

Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in adults, occurring in 29.1 million individuals. It can occur in one or both of the eyes, and if not treated can result in permanent vision loss. Diabetes symptoms can vary from normal vision to complete vision loss. Often there are no symptoms in the early stages of the disease, nor is there any pain. Blurred vision may occur as the disease progresses. The earlier you receive treatment, the more likely treatment will be effective and vision can be maintained.

How Does LASIK Work?

October 13, 2014

If you have vision problems, but don’t like the hassle of caring for contact lenses or glasses, LASIK may be the option for you.

LASIK, or “laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis” is a type of refractive surgery used to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The procedure is generally quick and pain free, taking about 15 minutes to complete for both eyes.
