Your eyes are a vital part of your overall health. To maintain optimal eye health and ensure that your vision is at its best, visit your ophthalmologist regularly. Many are unaware that they have vision problems or disease until they consult their eye doctor who performs a complete dilated eye examination. In some cases like glaucoma, diabetic eye disorder, and age associated macular degeneration, there are no warning signs. They can only be determined and diagnosed through a visit to the ophthalmologist.
Inform the ophthalmologist about your family history on eye health because some problems may be inherited. This helps the ophthalmologist determine your risk factors for certain eye conditions. Eating fruits and vegetables, specifically green leafy vegetables and fish rich in omega-3, and maintaining a healthy weight, contributes to helping keep your eyes in good condition and reduces the risk of eye disease. It is also suggested to stop smoking because smoking is associated with increasing your chance of developing macular degeneration, cataract, and optic nerve disorders. Ask your ophthalmologist about eye vitamins that have been clinically proven to aid in reducing vision loss from macular degeneration.
There is much that can be done to be proactive and to take charge of your eye health. Eye Michigan looks forward to your visit.
Schedule regular visits with your eye doctor and eliminate avoidable blindness.
DMEK is a reliable surgical choice to cure degrading vision and swollen, murky corneas. This is the third and most recent evolution to help those suffering with Fuch’s Corneal Dystrophy and corneal endothelial dysfunction. It has been demonstrated to provide patients the best option to achieve at least 20/25 vision, speedy return to normal activities, and ward off potential vision-threatening rejection. As compared to its predecessors, DMEK is considered the best anatomical restoration procedure because it only requires a single cell layer and a thin membrane to cure cornea irregularities.
DMEK surgery is done as outpatient. To avoid discomfort, a topical anesthesia is applied through eye drops. The damaged layer of the cornea is removed and is replaced by a designated thin layer of new cornea. It is proven to offer a faster enhancement in vision capacity with very low risk of rejection. Its results enable the patient’s cornea to be closer to its original state.
There are several advantages that can be derived out from this technology including:
September 21st is a day to promote advocacy and raise awareness for Alzheimer’s disease.
