Important for you
Glaucoma Follow-up

Patients with glaucoma are to be seen at least every 3 to 4 months for a pressure check (IOP).  A recent recommendation by the European Glaucoma Society (EGS) urges all ophthalmologist to increase the rate of obtaining visual fields from 1 a year to at least 6 every 2 years especially in newly diagnosed individuals and in people where progression is suspected. A worsening of the visual field MD (median deviation) by as much as 1db per year is a bad sign of progression and prompts further decrease in the IOP.

When Should I Have My Eyes Examined?

Adults should have routine eye exams starting in their twenties. This should be repeated every 2 to 3 years.  After the age of 40 and as the risk of eye-related diseases increases, one should have a routine eye exam yearly.  During such an exam, vision as well as the eye pressure (IOP) and fundus are all checked by an experienced ophthalmologist.

The eyes are the windows of the soul , but they’re also one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Drooping layers of skin and deep wrinkles on the eyelids can lead to a tired and a sad looking appearance. Eyelid surgery or Blepharoplasty can return youthful elegance to an individual’s face by removing excess skin and protruding pockets of fat from the upper and/or lower lid. If you’re concerned about the appearance of your eyes and wish to have a smoother, more youthful look, we invite you to consider blepharoplasty.

Blepharoplasty can give your eyes a vibrant, alert, and refreshed appearance that will make you feel as good you look!

We are at your disposal should you wish to ask questions during your consultation, or by telephone, or even online!

Vision Changes and Pregnancy

Expecting mothers usually expect to suffer from morning sickness and lower back pain, but they are surprised to find that their eyesight also changes due to the hormonal and physical changes that go with pregnancy. Luckily, these problems are usually minor and the vision returns to normal after the baby is born.
1. Blurry Vision

Fluid retention, a typical symptom of pregnancy, can change the thickness and state of the cornea. Minor changes in the cornea may cause blurriness or bended vision. Luckily, these changes typically go away after pregnancy or after you stop breast feeding.

You will not have to do anything if the progressions don't trouble you. On the off chance that your vision adjusts fundamentally, notwithstanding, converse with your specialist. You may need to change your medicine on the off chance that you wear glasses. Most eye specialists exhort against getting lasik surgery or being fitted for new contacts amid pregnancy. The reason: the state of your cornea will return to typical after your pregnancy is over.

2. Dry Eyes During Pregnancy

You may find that your eyes are drier and more irritated during pregnancy (as well as during breastfeeding). This, along with subtle changes in the shape and thickness of the cornea, may contribute to some difficulty wearing contact lenses that were once comfortable.

Ask your eye doctor about dry-eye remedies. Some over-the-counter solutions are fine to use, but others contain active ingredients that may not be completely safe during pregnancy. If you use contact lenses, try wearing them for shorter stretches of time. If that doesn't help, switch to glasses until you have your baby. Make regular breaks from the computer part of your routine. Staring at a computer screen for long periods of time (during which you may not blink as frequently as usual) can exacerbate the dryness and irritation.

3. Gestational Diabetes and Vision Issues

High glucose levels associated with diabetes can harm the blood vessels that supply the retina. The risk of getting worse goes up during pregnancy. A temporary type of diabetes that occasionally happens during pregnancy, called gestational diabetes, can cause unclear or blurry vision.
If you have diabetes, your condition should be monitored during this period to keep the blood sugar levels stable.
