Stewardship in Action in the Dominican Republic

Stewardship in Action in the Dominican Republic

Once again, I had the privilege and pleasure of visiting the Dominican Republic (DR) as the lead (and only) doctor on a vision care mission trip over Labor Day weekend. And, again, my 11-year-old daughter joined me and served with our team. Together we saw over 400 patients in three days of clinic and even had time to build a playground swing set at a local school before heading home on our last day. While the clinic conditions abroad always make me appreciate what I have at Eola Eyes – from reliable electricity to air conditioning to all kinds of medical technology – I wanted to share a couple “before” and “after” playground pictures that, I think, will help ANY American appreciate what we all have in our great country.

Google Glass: See Your Way to the Future

You’ve probably seen or at least heard of the new technology offered by Google known as “Google Glass.” In case you’re not fully up to speed on what it is, here is a quick rundown. It is a lightweight, wearable technology that sits just above the eyes, mounted on a pair of eyeglasses, and it is designed to be a source of information about any particular person, place, or thing you can ever imagine. Using this smart eyewear, you can take pictures and videos, get directions, search the web, check the weather, and so much more, all from the convenience of this little device. Read more …

Corneal Collagen Crosslinking: The Next Big Thing for Keratoconus Treatment?

Corneal Collagen Crosslinking: The Next Big Thing for Keratoconus Treatment?

In keratoconus, the cornea, or clear, front surface of the eye, becomes progressively thin and irregular, causing blurred and distorted vision. This condition was long believed to impact about 1 in 2,000 Americans, but we now find that it may effect as many as 1 in 750. Corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL) was first used in 1998 to treat patients with keratoconus and it is now being performed at hundreds of clinics around the world, including right here in Orlando. Research studies have shown that CXL may prevent further vision loss in over 95% of patients and improves vision in 60-81% of patients treated, so we are excited to share information with you about this treatment option.

Patients Find New Hope with Scleral Contact Lenses

Patients Find New Hope with Scleral Contact Lenses

Specialty contact lens fitting is a passion of all three of our doctors at Eola Eyes. Scleral contact lens designs have evolved rapidly in recent years and these lenses can provide unmatched vision and comfort for patients with the some of the most challenging vision problems we see in our practice. Scleral contact lenses are large-diameter rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses specially designed to vault over the entire corneal surface and rest on the ‘white’ of the eye (the sclera).

Look on the Bright Side, but be Sure You’re Wearing Your Sunglasses!

Look on the Bright Side, but be Sure You’re Wearing Your Sunglasses!

Here in the Sunshine State, we have access to warm weather for the majority of the year, beautiful beaches, and plenty of bright sunny days. And, of course, we have “The Mouse!” While for most of us Florida provides the picture perfect backdrop to our active lives and something our northern friends covet—especially around January—it can also put us at greater risk for ultraviolet (UV) radiation damage.
