Floaters in my vision!!

Is that normal??

That's a very common complaint when patients call the office. They are usually puzzled, often scared, and always eager to find out why they are seeing weird dots, floaters or webs inside their eye.

The only way to really assess this problem is with a complete, dilated eye exam. Even though the eyedrops are a hassle, they allow the ophthalmologist to look at the entire retina, including the optic nerve, blood vessels (veins and arteries), the macula and fovea, as well as the peripheral retina. The vitreous gel is usually optically clear, but sometimes floaters or strands can be seen within it.

But why are floaters a serious matter? Because in some cases, floaters can indicate a tear or detachment of the retinal, both of which are potentially sight-threatening issues. That's why when a patient calls my office with floaters, we get them in within 24-48 hours. A retinal detachment can be avoided if laser treatment around an early tear is perfo

That was the greeting from my first postop patient yesterday!! Boy do I love my job...This patient is in her late 40's, and came to me for LASIK surgery. Unfortunately, she was not a candidate for that surgery. So, instead, we decided to perform RELEX which means Refractive Lens Exchange. With that surgery, I remove the natural lens of the eye, and replace it with an artificial lens implant.In her case, we used a lens called ReStor, which provides her with distance, intermediate, and near vision without glasses!! She also had astigmatism, and I corrected that at the same time using LRI's (Limbal Relaxing Incisions).Day 1 postop, she is 20/30 at distance, 20/20 intermediate, and 20/25 at near!! Amazing! And such a happy patient....

I have been placing crystalens implants in patients eyes for over 4 years. One of my first patients came to the office today, and her vision is better than ever. The best part for her is that she no longer needs reading glasses for any activities except the crossword puzzles!!Early on, I only placed these lenses in patients for cataract surgery replacement lenses. In the last 2 years, I have been finding them useful for patients who are in their 50's and older, who just want to get rid of the readers.It is truly a great time to be an eye surgeon!!
