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

January 24, 2014 (comments: 0)

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.

‘Tis the Season for Itchy, Red, Swollen Allergy Eyes

If you look like you’re suffering from a three month hangover by the time Spring officially begins, chances are you, too, are one of the millions of Americans effected by seasonal allergies. Orlando falls within the top 100 of U.S. cities for the prevalence of seasonal allergies, and, while allergy season never seems to totally end in our warm climate, late January through April marks the peak of the misery for most of the allergy sufferers we see at Eola Eyes.

No “Puff,” Just Trusted Results

August 29, 2012 (comments: 0)

At Eola Eyes, we are constantly striving to implement new technologies and methods to improve our patients’ experience. We believe in using comfortable techniques for tonometry, which are also more effective and accurate than the air puff.

There are many health screening tests that, as patients, we often put off due to the discomfort and anxiety we associate with the tests. While we hope you never dread your visit to the eye doctor as much as your next blood draw or colonoscopy, we know the “air puff” test performed at many eye care practices is dreaded by many patients. If you, too, hate that puff of air that makes you jump out of your seat when shot at your eye, we have good news for you – there is NO PUFF at Eola Eyes! Read more …

Computers Can Be Great For Work, But Not Your Eyes

August 7, 2012 (comments: 0)

Computer vision issues are ranked number one by OSHA on the list of health-related office complaints. Experts say that CVS is the most prevalent workplace ergonomic issue, affecting an estimated 150 to 200 million Americans, or 90 percent of computer user

Do you spend more time with your computer than your mate? ‘Think your computer is wreaking havoc on your peepers? There’s an app for that—it’s called vacation. But what about the other 50 weeks a year? The term “computer vision syndrome” (CVS) describes a group of eye and vision-related problems that result from prolonged computer use. Symptoms of CVS include headaches, tired, dry, or burning eyes, blurred vision, and neck pain. These symptoms may be caused by poor lighting, glare from the computer screen or overhead lighting, poor seating posture, uncorrected vision problems (especially hyperopia, astigmatism, or presbyopia), and/or improper viewing distances.

Optometrist, Optician, or Ophthalmologist…What’s the difference?

Optometrist, Optician, or Ophthalmologist…What’s the Difference?

We’ve been called it all, including obstetricians. No, we don’t deliver babies. We only do eyes. No blood or needles (usually) and nothing below the belt (ever). But, you still may wonder, what are the differences between the three O’s in eye care? They are all important and distinctly different professions. Read more …
