The Herpes Simplex virus can impact the body in a number of different ways.

The eyes can experience considerable discomfort and pain as a result of it. Watch the video to find out more about it.

Elderly and Eyes

It’s important to be pro-active in looking after your eyes, and it’s especially important for the elderly to do so.

I write about this at the AARP website where I outline 6 steps to save your sight.

As people age, aches and pains set in and the eyes are part of it. So instead of it getting to the point where you have to deal with a serious eye illness, be proactive and nip it in the bud.

Pseudoexfoliation

Pseudoexfoliation syndrome

In most if not all instances, a patient first hears about Pseudoexfoliation syndrome is when their doctor tells them they have it.

It is crazy to think a person can have something seriously wrong with their eyes and not know how it happened, what it is or how to treat it.

This is why it’s so important to continue to increase awareness of serious eye issues.

Patching Though

In the battle to increase awareness of serious eye issues, I’ve now started contributing at Patch.com

I have already done 2 pieces there.

The first is a recap of the time Kristi Krueger came to our offices and did a report for the WPLG Local 10 News.

The second piece is on the work we do with Light of the World.

Important for us to give back to the community, especially to those who need it the most.

Looking forward to contributing more and increasing awareness of the serious eye issues facing people.

 

 

 

 

glaucoma, Macular Degeneration

Farewell to Glaucoma Awareness Month

The last day of January is also the final day of Glaucoma Awareness Month. I hope that via my blog posts and YouTube Videos your awareness of Glacuoma is now significantly increased.

Here is my final Glaucoma Awareness video for the year outlining treatment of it.

Out of this, I hope you will be more proactive when it comes to your eyes. Don’t just wait for something to happen to them, especially if you’re over 50.

As for what I will talk about next, unfortunately there are many other ailments that can affect the eyes. Depending on who you hold be, February is Low Vision Awareness Month or Age-Related Macular Degeneration Awareness month,

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is one of the leading, if not the number one cause of blindness among older people. As dangerous as glaucoma is, macular degeneration among the elderly simply can not be ignored.
