You can tell so much about a person just from their eyes...literally. I had so much fun during an interview a few weeks ago with @lizreyes504 about what your eyes can tell you about your health! Thanks for having me @fox8nola! (will share link on Facebook) #LSUhealth#eyehealth#ophthalmology#nola
This is a short video of our student extern Shirin inserting a scleral lens onto the right eye of student extern Areen. In one year these 2 doctors to be will be helping “hi need” patients in their communities see clearly and comfortably. Can’t wait.
This is a short video of student extern Areen Hosein taking an EyePrint Pro impression of the ocular surface of our other student extern Shirin Mawji-Ali. After the impression is removed, it is sent to a special laboratory where 3-D printing technology is used to make a gas permeable EyePrint Pro lens whose back surface will replicate every “hill and valley” of the front surface of the patient’s eye. This is the most comfortable scleral lens available for the most challenging eyes.
When was your last #eyeexam ? The American Optometric Association recommends having an eye exam every 1-2 years. Schedule yours today-link in bio.
In conjunction with National Eye Care Day, the #NUH Eye Surgery Centre conducted complimentary #eyescreenings for about 100 participants aged 55 and above. This year's theme is Eye Care for the Family, and covers the key #eyeconditions affecting our young and our elderly. Held earlier today, the screenings are part of our efforts to raise awareness and promoting #eyehealth among Singaporeans 👀

SEE the world in a clearer view!
Combination of the world's most powerful vitamins & antioxidants to keep our eyes healthy and away from retinal degeneration and UV exposure.
Best for prevention of poor vision, cataract formation, glaucoma, and retinal problems.
So we came into work today and found Elf on the shelf had almost fallen into our Tomato glasses box. We are wondering if he is a little shortsighted and if he is hinting that he needs to have an eye examination and maybe get him some concentrating glasses. Even Elf on shelf students need
Annual Eye Exams like children. They should be As Important as Visits to doctors or Pediatricians.
Keeping children healthy and happy can be addressed at the Optometrist as well. Children’s eyes need to be examined for proper development, Vision and Eye teaming.
Early diagnosis of squint, lazy eye, strabismus or astigmatism can lead to quick response and recovery time. “It never ceases to amaze me, at what the next little patient that walks in my door may have ”, says Nicky Kiparissis , Optometrist with greater than 25 years experience.
“Glaucoma in a 5 month old baby, cataracts in a 6 month old child and her 3 year old brother, not to mention macular dystrophy/ degeneration in a 6 year old”.
“Helping diagnose, Vision related learning difficulties, and exclude ADHD as a cause can be such a relief to concerned parents”. “Children now have the opportunity to come to a safe and fun space and to play games aimed at their ability so we can assess their visual function and Eye health”.
Call us on 9448 8933 to book an appointment with Nicky before the end of the year.
What Are Floaters?
Floaters are small, dark shapes that float through the field of vision. They can be dots, strands, squiggles, or countless other shapes. Though they may seem annoying, they are harmless and can be prevented by eating a proper diet.
If the small spots that appear in your vision appear suddenly, it’s
recommended that you visit your eye doctor immediately so as to rule out any serious issues with your eyesight. A sudden rise in floaters can indicate a vitreous or #retinal detachment.
People who are #nearsighted or diabetic are especially prone to retinal tears and floaters.
What Causes Floaters?
Floaters are mainly caused by bits of #cells that can remain in the vitreous humor and continue to float around when the #vitreous is later #liquefied . It’s estimated that around 50% of people over 70 years old are seeing floaters.
Q: I started taking Serrapeptase two weeks ago to clear up eye floaters. It hasn’t yet shown any #results , and I was wondering how long should I expect it to take before seeing a difference in these floaters? I’m taking two pills a day.
A: Follow my Floaters #Health#Plan for best results. Serrapeptase is unlikely to clear them on its own.
#Testimonial “I tried #Serrapeptase , and it has cured floaters in my #eyes that I have had for 30 plus years, #arthritis in one finger, and my #fingernails have also started growing again… I have a lot more energy... and just one bottle did the trick.” - Elaine N., Canada

On December 14th, Dr. Shatz performed surgery on a patient suffering from Pseudoexfoliation Syndrome (PEx). PEx creates surgical challenges, even with advanced laser cataract technology. While the laser can soften the lens core, the risk of nuclear loss is increased with a more dense lens. Due to poorly-dilated pupils and loose zonules (the “wires” that suspend the lens inside the eye) from this eye disease, special techniques and early intervention from our team enabled us to achieve a successful surgical outcome. This patient is doing well and recovering nicely. #SightTrust
