This is a photo of a GVR Scleral lens over an eye that underwent corneal transplant surgery 15 years ago due to "Fuch's Dystrophy". Fuch's Dystrophy is characterized by tiny blisters forming in the cornea resulting in eye pain and very cloudy vision. This patient now has clear (20/20) and comfortable vision since he was fit with this unique lens.
Sundays are for cooking in prep for the week ahead. These pretty little things will be put to to go use in my casserole. As a Naturopath I promote eating every colour of the rainbow when it comes to vegetables and fruit to ensure that you get an array of nutrients to benefit your health. Carrots come in a range of colour, from the classic deep orange to purple, white, yellow and red. They are a great source of beta- carotene which converts to Vitamin A when absorbed by the body. This promotes healthy glowing skin, strong immune system and good eye health. Simply, adds some carrots into your diet and rake in the benefits! #betacarotene#carrots#eattherainbow#glowingskin#strongimmunity#eyehealth#nutrition

NO GLASSES!! Finally got an eye exam and new contacts. Hallelujah! 🙌🏼I've missed wearing cute 🕶😊 •••also, if I'm being perfectly honest, a few months ago I kind of just didn't care. I was in a job that was causing so much stress and anxiety that my appearance was last on my list. I was depressed and it showed. Now, over just the last month and a half of my new job, things are taking a turn for the better and I'm so stoked about it. I care how I look, I've lost 6 lbs. 🌟💪🏼(as of today! Woo hoo!! Go me!), and I'm putting things like eye exams and dentist appointments back on my list of priorities. Look good feel good is so true!! 🤗💖☀️ #happysaturday#goaldigger#loveyourselfie#progress#selfiesaturday#eyehealth#selfcare
Don't forget to protect your eyes while you enjoy the great outdoors this weekend. UV damage can include eyelid cancers, photokeratitis (sunburn of the cornea), pingueculas, cataracts, and macular degeneration. #sunglasses#uvprotection#vision#eyehealth
“We understand the importance of reaching out and raising (#eyehealth ) awareness among the public,” said Dr Zhang. “Before #training , we used to wait for patients to come to us.”
The Fred Hollows Foundation started training at the Lixin People’s Hospital three years ago and Dr Zhang spent three months learning #cataract surgery.
Other doctors were trained in optometry and child eye care, and the hospital bought equipment to match the improved skills of the trained doctors.
This investment in training is vital to reach our goal of ending avoidable #blindness , and young doctors like Dr Zhang are vital to that.
On World #YoungDoctorsDay , we say #thankyou to all young doctors working towards that.
This is my daughter, Natasha. She has a very high prescription and has been wearing glasses since she was 6. It's incredibly hard to watch your child struggle with any sort of medical issue. Thankfully, my wife and I are in the industry where we understood what was happening and could educate Natasha about her vision.
This is what we strive for everyday at Baker Optical - educating our clients about their eyes. Our passion for eyes is from personal experience. And as such, a few local well-known opticals throughout Edmonton will send us their clients with complex prescriptions because they know we are experienced. In fact, we recently fitted an 18 month old with a severe prescription.
Yes, glasses are fashionable. But for most, it is a necessary medical appliance. We want to help you learn more about the health of your eyes, as we did for our daughter.
Natasha chooses to wear both contact lenses and glasses these days. When she wears her glasses, she has fun with it since she "no longer looks like a child librarian". #herwordsnotmine#lookatthatface#bakeroptical#knowledgeispower#helpushelpyou#eyehealth#eyes#begoodtoyoureyes#vision#seeforyourself#punintended
This patient wears special "Orthok" lenses which are designed to gently reshape the front surface (the cornea) of the eye so that he does not need to wear any eyeglasses for distance or reading. This technology is known as "Orthokeratology". This patient only wears his lenses for an hour each day and for the remainder of his waking hours after removal of the lenses has 20/15 vision in each eye. I have been helping this patient see this way for over 35 years. This is why I love the work that I do.
Believe it or not, #LASIK is cheaper than wearing glasses or contacts. While LASIK averages about $4,000-4,500 for both eyes, you will be cutting out the yearly expenses of an eye exam, contacts, glasses and other eye care products. Learn more about how LASIK can actually help you save money in the long run by calling us at 1800EYECARE. #eyehealth#surgery#tgif#2020vision#follow#beauty#health

O que será que ele está vendo lá dentro? 👀🤔. Vários pontos de luz em diferentes locais. 💡. Sempre que ele enxergar o estímulo luminoso deverá apertar um botão. Este exame é chamado campimetria visual computadorizada e é muito utilizado por nós oftalmologistas para o diagnóstico e acompanhamento de glaucoma. Esta é uma doença muito grave, que pode levar à cegueira se for diagnosticada em uma fase muito avançada. Por isso exames oftalmológicos periódicos são muito importantes. Detectando a doença numa fase inicial e começando o tratamento adequado há um bom prognóstico. 👁. #consulteseuoftalmologista
"It is so joyful to be able to see the young children playing." Before trachoma surgery in Senegal, Biteye had been in pain for 15 years. Here she is smiling at the camera wearing a blue top and yellow headscarf.
