Types of Cataracts
A cataract is a dense, cloudy area that forms in the lens of the eye.
Common symptoms of cataracts include:
* blurry vision
* trouble seeing at night
* seeing colors as faded
* increased sensitivity to glare
* halos surrounding lights
* double vision in the affected eye
* a need for frequent changes in prescription glasses

What is Pattern Electroretinography (ERG) Vision Testing?

It is similar to an EKG, but for your eyes.

Results from these tests help doctors manage disorders including diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, retinal concerns obscured by media opacities, optic neuritis, and more.

The test is a painless, safe, non-invasive way for the doctor to objectively measure the function of your retina – the light-sensitive layer at the back of your eye.

Detect early, Track progression and Tailor treatment

Tired Eyes???
Computer screen can put a real strain on your eyes. Since your eyes are fixated you go from blinking an average of 15 - 20 times per minute to 3 - 4 times per minute. This can strain your eye, leading to redness and fatigue.
Take a little break to soothe your eyes and reduce your risk of dry eyes during computer use.
Every 20 minutes, blink 10 time. This will help rewet your eyes. To ease eye strain, make sure you use good lighting and sit at a proper distance from the computer screen.

Tiny bees found in woman's eye, feeding off tears......

Apparently a world first

WebMD

April 10, 2019

The case sounds unbelievable, but it's not: Four tiny sweat bees entered the eye of a Taiwanese woman, fed on her tears and took up residence. She had been reportedly visiting a family gravesite when she noticed something in her eye and washed it out, thinking that solved the problem.

However, according to news reports, by evening it had swollen up and she felt pain under the eyelid. The next day she went to the doctor ln a delicate procedure, her ophthalmologist removed all four of the creatures — still alive — from the woman's tear duct.

Sweat bees, technically called Halictidae, are known for landing on sweaty skin and lapping up salt. They are tiny, often less than a quarter-inch.

WebMD asked Dr. Mark Fromer;

WebMD: How did the bees likely get into the woman’s eyes?

Fromer: The punctum is [typically] very tiny. It's amazing the bees even got in there.

WebMD: Why did they stay?

Fromer: The corneal surface is a ready source of fluid, salt and glucose for the eye. The bees found a home where the nutritional sources the bees were looking for were readily available.

WebMD: What is the likely outlook for her eye?

Fromer: It should be fine, because the bees are gone.

Antioxidants for the Eyes
Lutein and Zeaxanthin are believed to prevent eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Lutein and Zeaxanthin cannot be produced by our bodies on their own, so they must be obtained through diet and/or supplements. They act as antioxidants that help filter blue light and help reduce macular oxidative damage and protect the macula. Foods rich in these vitamins include broccoli, spinach, kale, corn, orange pepper, kiwi fruit, grapes, orange juice, zucchini, and squash. They are absorbed best when it is taken with a high-fat meal.

Blood-red spots in the whites of your eyes look scary, but they’re usually as harmless as a bruise on your skin. This is called a subconjunctival hemorrhage. Even a hard cough or sneeze can cause it. The blood will clear on its own in a few weeks.

Got a black eye?
Save the steak for dinner! There’s no science backing this as a treatment for a shiner. Plus, the bacteria on it could cause an infection. Instead, put a bag of frozen peas or an ice pack on it ASAP for 15-20 minutes every hour.

Stem Cell Therapy Shows Early Promise Against Macular Degeneration


THURSDAY, Jan. 17, 2019 (HealthDay News)

Age-related macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss in seniors, and existing treatments are few.

"This could lead to improved visual function for people with age-related macular degeneration of the dry form, for which there is currently no cure," said Dr. Mark Fromer.

The experiments in pigs and rats suggest that stem cell therapy might help control at least one form of the disease.

"Human clinical trials are necessary to develop these new groundbreaking techniques," Dr. Fromer said.
